Routine traffic stop leads to felony drug charge

A Spokane County Sheriff’s deputy arrested a man on a felony drug charge Wednesday after a routine traffic stop. The deputy stopped Larry Marquette, 43, failing to signal near Argonne and Montgomery. But Marquette didn’t get off with just a traffic infraction. He was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and booked into Spokane County Jail after the deputy found a baggy under the driver’s seat authorities believe to be methamphetamine, said Sheriff’s Spokesman Deputy Craig Chamberlin. Upon searching the car, the deputy found two cloth bags that held several plastic baggies and a digital scale. According to authorities, Marquette told the deputy he was on probation for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and that he “could not find a job and had been selling the methamphetamine for the past month to take care of his sick mother.”
