SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash --- A reckless driver lead deputies to a stolen motorcycle, drugs, cash and four arrests.
On August 31, around 10 p.m., a Spokane County Sheriff’s deputy saw a red motorcycle driving at an extremely high rate of speed on 3rd Avenue near Freya. The deputy estimated the speed of the motorcycle to be around 70 mph in a 35-mph zone.
The driver, who was later identified as 28-year-old Matthew Low, tried to flee when he saw the patrol car chasing him, said the SCSO. Low got onto I-90 and tried to lose the deputy by weaving around vehicles and driving 90-100 mph.
SCSO and Spokane Valley deputies followed Low to a house in the 2900 block of East Gordon Avenue, and established a perimeter.
A helicopter was in orbit in the area and told deputies multiple suspects ran from the rear of the building into a small camper.
Multiple announcements were given for the suspects to surrender, but they did not surrender, according to law enforcement.
A search warrant was granted for the garage and the camper, and law enforcement found the red motorcycle in the garage. They discovered it was stolen but the owner had not reported it yet.
Deputies breached a window to the camper after the suspects did not exit the vehicle. Three men were found inside, they would not follow commands from the deputies. Deputies used pepper spray through the window to make the men leave.
After deputies cleared the camper they discovered a plastic bag with a white crystalized substance believed to be methamphetamine, said SCSO. They also found a bag with a substance they believed to be heroin, a black digital scale and a large amount of cash.
They later confirmed the substances were meth and heroin.
The investigation revealed the drugs belonged to 19-year-old Kailey Flamand. Flamand was booked into the Spokane County Jail for two counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
Low was booked into the Spokane County Jail for attempting to elude a law enforcement vehicle, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and obstructing and reckless driving.
The other two men were booked into the Spokane County Jail for obstructing law enforcement, said the SCSO.
