Man faces drug charges after raid

A Spokane man was arrested Tuesday with a half-ounce of methamphetamine, $5,000 and a quantity of hydrocodone.

Gerald A. Oglesbee, 41, was booked into Spokane County Jail on three counts of delivery of meth and one count of possession of meth with intent to deliver, according to a news release from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.

The Investigative Task Force said Oglesbee, 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds, had video surveillance at his home at 1724 E. First Ave. when officers arrived about 9 a.m.

The raid followed three undercover purchases of methamphetamine, police said. Oglesbee’s previous convictions include burglary, bail jumping, assault and a firearms violation.

Also arrested at the home was Tianna R. Hurd, 28. She was booked into the Spokane County Jail on a previously issued civil bench warrant, according to a news release. Oglesbee remained in jail Wednesday; Hurd had been released.
