Lost meth lands man in jail

A Spokane man got some good news and some bad news this weekend from police.

The good news: Ziggy’s employees found the item he apparently lost while shopping at the building supply store Sunday.

The bad news: It was a baggie of methamphetamine, and Ziggy’s called Spokane police.

Christopher C. Wilson, 34, gave employees his name and number after asking about a lost item. That information helped police arrest him after employees checked video footage and saw him dropping the bag by the counter. They found it just minutes before Wilson returned.

“The thoroughness and professionalism of the Ziggy’s store employees, along with the suspect’s as well, made this an easy arrest for the Spokane Police Department,” Officer Kevin King wrote in a news release.

Wilson was booked into Spokane County Jail on one count of possession of a controlled substance.

Getting There: Spokane is booming. Time to figure out parking.

The last time the city of Spokane did a parking study might as well have been 1,000 years ago. It was 2010. There was no Kendall Yards. There was no South Perry District. We laughed at Seattle for its traffic woes. The economic downturn was still turned way down.
