The Plant Farm

Creach shooting: Key place

The Plant Farm is a sprawling nursery and greenhouse complex in Spokane Valley. It’s owned and operated by the family of the late Wayne Scott Creach. The property, at 14208 E. Fourth Ave., includes the business as well as the home that Creach shared with his wife, Imogene. Scott Creach routinely carried his .45-caliber pistol on his property and was known by police to hold theft suspects at gunpoint until officers could arrive. The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office documented 21 contacts that deputies had with Creach or his business over the past five years.
