SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. — A pistol, ammunition, a ballistic vest and suspected fentanyl were seized by Spokane Valley authorities last Thursday.

They also seized other drugs and drug paraphernalia after a search warrant was granted to Spokane Valley Deputies and the Spokane Valley Investigative Unit.

Deputies went to the 1300 block of North Farr Road when a caller informed them of a man that was possibly under the influence, stumbling near a white Chevrolet sedan. When arriving on the scene, they contacted 27-year-old Alexandria M. Main, who was near the car. Authorities found that Main had two active misdemeanor warrants for her arrest on charges of theft and false statements. She was taken into custody.

Authorities later found 30-year-old Brenden A. Lee inside a nearby home. He was taken into custody for an active misdemeanor warrant for first-degree criminal trespass.

Lee is a seven-time convicted felon with two counts of possession of drugs without a prescription, three counts of taking a motor vehicle without permission, possession of a stolen vehicle and criminal impersonation, not allowing him to own a firearm.

When the investigation was taking place, records showed that Lee was contacted on June as the driver of the vehicle, but a month later, the vehicle was reported as a suspicious vehicle.

Lee claimed that the vehicle did not belong to him and did not have a firearm. He also claimed he found the ammunition on the ground and put it in his pocket.

The car was seized as evidence pending a search warrant, and Lee and Main were booked into the Spokane County Jail. They were both released the next day on their own recognizance by the courts.
