Meth bust jails two
Grand Coulee Police arrested and jailed two Electric City residents March 2 on charges of delivering meth within 1,000 feet of a school bus stop.
Robert Day, 34, and Heather McClain, 35, were arrested and taken to Grant County Jail, under charged with delivery of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), violations committed in or on certain public places (within 1,000 feet of a school bus stop).
With a warrant, police entered the residence at 58078 W. Second, in Electric City, and found what they thought were methamphetamine crystals packed in a small plastic bag. It later tested positive as “meth” at the police station. Officers also found a smoking device, scales, various plastic bags, brass knuckles and other contraband.
Police said they got the search warrant after successfully making controlled buys of “meth” at the residence and from the two people involved.
When officers arrived to serve the warrant one policeman was attacked and bitten by a neighbor’s dog.
Both Day and McClain denied selling meth and only admitted to using it, until they learned that police had been making controlled buys and had witnesses.
The two were taken to jail in Ephrata and spent three nights in the Grant County facility until released on a $10,000 signature bond.
Police stated that they had had the residence under observation after receiving a tip that the couple were selling meth from the house. Then police organized the controlled buy.
