A Spokane Valley couple was jailed Friday after authorities raided their home and allegedly found a methamphetamine lab inside.
Edward C. Faydo, 36, and his wife, Dana, 34, were arrested on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance with intent to manufacture.
Spokane Regional Drug Task Force agents entered the home at 2300 N. Park about 11 a.m.
They seized a small amount of methamphetamine; equipment used in manufacturing, packaging and selling the drug; and a loaded assault rifle fitted with a bayonet, said Sheriff’s Department spokesman David Reagan.
Three young children were home at the time of the raid. They have been placed in protective custody, Reagan said.
