Spokane Valley ‘wedding crashers’ linked to drug, prostitution operation

UPDATED: Thu., Oct. 19, 2017, 7:35 a.m.

A couple who allegedly crashed a wedding in August, stole gifts and took a photo together at the reception – which later led to their apprehension and arrest – have been linked to a drug and prostitution operation, according to authorities.

One of the individuals involved, Sierra Davies, 25, is in Spokane County Jail on charges of prostitution, as well as a host of other charges after she allegedly solicited an undercover Spokane County Sheriff’s detective last month.

The other, Josh Davies, is in Spokane County Jail on charges stemming from the wedding heist and the couple’s subsequent arrest. He faces 17 counts of theft, three counts of money laundering and burglary, and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.

Both had been “on the run from Idaho Probation for several months,” according to court documents. Civil records show that the two were married in Post Falls, Idaho, in August 2013.

Authorities say that, as part of their investigation, they have obtained a detailed ledger for a prostitution and drug operation run by the pair, which lists rates, clients, sex acts and drug preferences.

Some of the ledger’s notes suggest they may have intended to kill and extort clients, according to a police report.

A Spokane County Sheriff’s Office detective found Sierra Davies, the subject of a previous prostitution investigation, advertising her services on Backpage.com, according to the report.

Posing as a potential client, a detective contacted Davies on a number she provided on Backpage on Sept. 28, and both parties agreed to meet at Crossland, a hotel in Spokane Valley.

At the hotel, Davies was arrested on suspicion of prostitution and Glen K. Bell, who was driving the vehicle in which Davies arrived, is accused of soliciting prostitution, police said.

According to the police report, Bell, 22, had a Glock 26 handgun tucked under his waistband, which was reportedly stolen from Idaho. Bell claimed to have found it lying in an alley two days before. A digital scale was also found in Bell’s shorts, according to police, which appeared to have brown residue “likely to be heroin.”

Davies carried a bag that reportedly contained heroin, lingerie, shoes, KY jelly and a ledger, according to police.

Davies told detectives she was at the hotel to play board games and that Bell was her boyfriend.

Bell, however, told detectives that he takes Davies to hotels in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene “to give massages” and admitted that she likely engaged in sex acts during those massages, the police report said.

Bell is currently in Spokane County Jail on charges of promoting prostitution, possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. In addition to the prostitution charge, Davies was also charged with possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver.

Detailed accounts of illegal services

The ledger, which authorities say they uncovered as part of their case against the couple, appears to show a detailed record of a drug and prostitution business operated by Sierra and Joshua Davies.

A man named Steve is described as “Suggar daddy, cash, toys, security, consistency house, RAPIST End goal: Completely destroy this piece of (expletive). Take everything, then kill him. No longer allowed physical presence. This ends July 8 with confrontation by me.”

A client named Al is listed as a “pervert, married happily, extortable, cash source ($100 for 45 min. visit/$100 for video and pics).”

“Sierra’s rules” for clients were also listed, one of which said they get “one warning, if they’re still (expletive) around, then they get to meet Quinten and Josh.”

The ledger’s rates include a detailed list of services and fees, including a “full service” clientele that was listed for overnight cost of $1,200.

Two other men, Fabian and Randy, are also named as clients in the ledger.

“Keep in touch with Fabian! Potential overnight client for $1,500. Randy overnight – try to schedule 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. for $1,500.”

The ledger indicated Davies met clients in hotels in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene.

“Party favors” were also listed, which included cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin.

In August, Sierra Davies told authorities she and Josh crashed a wedding at the Mirabeau Park Hotel in the Spokane Valley because they were hungry, didn’t have money and had just watched “Wedding Crashers” and “thought it would be fun to do.”

Nobody witnessed the theft of gifts and a box of cards at the wedding, police said, but the newly married couple found a picture of two unknown guests at their reception’s selfie station.

Investigators tracked the two suspects down to a hotel after the married couple posted the picture on social media and forwarded tips about their identities.

A search warrant of their hotel led to the recovery of cards and cash as well as methamphetamine, heroin, scales and packaging used in drug sales, police said, and both were arrested and are accused of first-degree theft and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
