6 lbs. of meth, $60k seized from trailer

Police seized more than six pounds of methamphetamine and $60,000 from a trailer near the Fairchild Airforce Base on Thursday.

Gerardo S. Miramontes, 35, and Rigoberto Ayala, 32, face drug and gun charges after a search warrant was served at 15610 W. Highway 2.

A confidential informant bought methamphetamine through Miramontes on Jan. 5 and Jan. 11 from the Spokane Police Department, according to court documents prepared by drug Detective Kevin Langford.
The informant exchanged money for meth with a man who identified himself as "Creeps," who police say is Ayala.

Along with the drugs and cash, police found scales and sandwich baggies in the trailer, as well as three firearms.

Miramontes, who police say also lives in San Diego, has a previous felony conviction for second-degree assault. Ayala has a felony conviction in Nevada for possession of a stolen vehicle.

The men are in the Spokane County Jail after appearing in Superior Court today on drug and gun charges.
