Spokane police arrested two people Monday morning suspected of manufacturing hash oil at their Logan neighborhood home.

Cpl. Teresa Fuller, spokeswoman for the Spokane Police Department, said officers, with the assistance of Washington State Patrol SWAT and the Department of Ecology, made the arrest about 9 a.m. after serving a search warrant at the home in the 1500 block of East Bridgeport Avenue, near Gonzaga Prep.

Ashley M. Bowman, 26, and Fikadu A. Alamine, 31, were taken into custody and could face charges of manufacturing a controlled substance.

Fuller credited the help of neighbors in locating the home, which posed an “extremely dangerous situation,” because of the method of manufacturing the oil.
