A Spokane methamphetamine dealer arrested after trying to collect a casino jackpot while on the lam was sentenced Friday to 18 years in prison. Michael D. “Bull” Luce, 31, avoided arrest for weeks despite a federal indictment filed nearly a year after 2 1/2 pounds of methamphetamine and an AK-47 assault rifle were seized from their East Rowan Avenue home in April 2009. Detectives monitored jail phone calls and used GPS trackers and covert surveillance, but their break came when Luce tried to cash a $5,000 jackpot at the Coeur d’Alene Casino on April 16. Security recognized him from a police flyer/Meghann M. Cuniff, Sirens & Gavels. More here.
