Police seize 2 pounds of meth, guns in raid

From Staff Reports

A raid Thursday at a northeast Spokane home netted more than 2 pounds of methamphetamine and a pair of stolen guns, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office reported.

SWAT team detectives served a search warrant at 1421 E. Rowan Ave., about 5:30 a.m., after an undercover purchase of methamphetamine from the home’s occupants, said Sgt. Dave Reagan.

In the home and a related storage unit at the northeast Spokane home, detectives found 2 1/2 pounds of meth and four firearms, including an AK-47-style assault rifle.

Two weapons had been stolen from a Bonners Ferry, Idaho, gun dealer recently, Reagan said.

Arrested were Michael David Luce, 29, and Amanda G. McIntyre, 27. Both were booked into jail on charges of possession of meth with intent to deliver.

The home is within 1,000 feet of Whitman Elementary School, meaning the suspects could face two additional years in prison if convicted, Reagan said.
