Man arrested after hiding meth in ice cream

A 60-year-old man was arrested after a Spokane County Sheriff’s Office deputy discovered a baggie of meth hidden in a quart of ice cream in the man’s car. Deputy Jeff Thurman made a traffic stop on a car driven by Steven Fitch on Friday at about 10:45 p.m., according to a news release. Thurman saw Fitch reaching toward the center console of his car and the deputy ordered him out of the vehicle. Fitch’s hands were covered in a “white, creamy substance,” and the deputy saw a quart of ice cream in the car’s center console, the release said. The deputy spotted a plastic baggie of meth in the ice cream. Fitch “tried to convince Deputy Thurman multiple times that he had no idea how the meth got into his ice cream,” the release said. Fitch was booked into Spokane County Jail on a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance and other charges.
