Suspicious Person Tip Leads To Arrest In Spokane Valley

Posted: Updated:

Spokane County Sheriff's Department Press Release: 

Monday morning just before 1:30 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies Hilton and Bohanek responded to the area of East Laberry Dr and North Cane Circle to investigate a report of suspicious activity. A citizen reported he observed people walking down the roadway with flashlights looking into vehicles.

Deputy Hilton located and contacted a male in the area matching the description given and holding a small flashlight. The male identified himself as 52-year-old Freddie J. Hall and stated he was just walking home.

During the contact, Hall placed his right hand in his pocket even after being instructed to keep his hands out of his pockets and in view. From prior contacts and knowing Hall's past history with law enforcement, Deputy Hilton asked for and was given consent to search Hall for weapons.

During the search of his right pants pocket, Deputy Hilton located a hypodermic needle along with 2 clear plastic bags. One of the baggies contained a white crystalline substance believed to be methamphetamine and the other contained 3 pills.

Hall was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance, Methamphetamine. While at the jail, Deputy Hilton identified the pills as Morphine, a controlled substance which Hall could not provide a prescription for. With this information, Hall was also booked for Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance, Morphine.

The white crystalline substance was field tested and showed a presumptive positive reading for Methamphetamine.
