Spokane County deputies arrested two people and seized guns and drugs from a Spokane Valley home early Tuesday.

The SWAT team went to the home around 5:45 a.m. to help serve a search warrant related to a drug distribution operation. Two women and a man surrendered, but deputies believed another man was hiding inside and fired tear gas into the home.

Deputies searched the home without success, but police K-9 Gunnar located the man, identified as Brian J. Partridge, 26, hiding under the back deck.

Investigators recovered four weapons, drug packaging material, cash, meth, heroin and Xanax.

Partridge has been charged with obstructing law enforcement, resisting arrest, three counts of possession of a controlled substance and six counts of possession with intent to deliver. Bailey J. Counts, 22, was arrested on three counts of possession of a controlled substance and three counts of possession with intent to deliver.
