A Spokane Valley man is accused of using too much force to discourage another man from seeing his granddaughter, police said today.

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team on Monday raided the home of Stanley L. Bloyed, 65, seeking evidence related to a March 3 incident involving threats and a firearm.

Bloyed is accused of going to a home in the 2500 block of South Rees Lane armed with a pistol to convince the resident there to quit seeing his granddaughter. The resident slammed the door, but Bloyed is accused of kicking in a lower panel and shouting threats.

He was booked following Monday’s raid on charges of first-degree burglary, second-degree assault and first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm.

Detectives took a .32-caliber revolver and ammunition from his home. Bloyed has a felony criminal record and was not legally allowed to possess a firearm or ammunition, said Sgt. Dave Reagan in a press release today.
