SPOKANE, Wash. - On March 27, 2013, the Spokane Violent Crime Gang Enforcement Team Gang Enforcement Team assisted US Federal Probation Officers and arrested Todd A. Sawyer (12-28-85) at 7100 E. Mansfield in the Spokane Valley after information was received that Sawyer was involved in possession of controlled substances.  An inspection of his residence, which is allowed based on his probation status, revealed a large quantity of suspected methamphetamine.  Sawyer was arrested and a federal search warrant was obtained by task force officers.  During the subsequent search of the residence, about one-half pound of the substance was seized.  It tested positive for methamphetamine.  Additional evidence was also secured.  Sawyer was booked for Possession of Controlled Substance with the Intent to Distribute. 
 
Sawyer is a nine time convicted felon for drugs and firearms related charges.  This case is a perfect example of the excellent cooperation and coordination of information between the WA State Department of Corrections, SVCGET and the US Federal Probation Office.
 
The Spokane Violent Crime Gang Enforcement Team consists of Officers from the Spokane Valley Police Department, Spokane County Sheriff's Office, Spokane Police Department, Washington State Patrol, Department of Corrections, U.S. Border Patrol, A.T.F, and the F.B.I.  
 
Any additional witnesses or persons with information related to this, or any other gang related incident,  are encouraged to contact the Spokane Police Violent Crime Gang Enforcement team at 625-GANG (4264) or online at www.stopspokanegangs.org.  Persons providing information can remain anonymous.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - One of the great parts about living in Spokane, is if you head out of town in any direction, you're going to run into some beautiful farm land. I grew up south of Spokane, near Plaza, and one of my favorite things to do was to sit on the porch at night and stare south towards Rosalia at all of the rolling hills of wheat, lentils, barley and peas. More >>
