Search warrants lead to arrest of eight at Red Top Motel
Eight people were charged as the result of a two-month long investigation into criminal activity at the Red Top Motel Tuesday, and Spokane Valley Investigative Unite Detectives are still searching for more suspects.
Since January 2017, the Red Top Motel has had over 100 calls for service. Several of those calls have resulted in the arrests of known criminals. Before Tuesday’s operation, eight people had been arrested for various crimes related to the motel.
Spokane Valley Investigative Unit Detectives received information that the managers of the motel, 56-year-old Mark J. Rosenberg and his girlfriend, 61-year-old Vicki I. Keer, were involved in and allowed crime to occur at the motel.
Detectives learned Rosenberg and Keer were selling illegal drugs and associating with known repeat offenders, fugitives, and gang members. Police also found counter surveillance, used for lookouts, and stolen vehicles at the motel.
Detectives were granted search warrants for the Red Top Motel Office, Manager’s Quarters, and six other rooms at the motel.
Tuesday morning around 6 a.m., Spokane Valley Detectives, along with multiple other units, executed the search warrants, which resulted in eight arrests, and the seizure of two vehicle and over $4,000 in cash, coins, silver, and gold.
