          PETITION FOR ACTION ON CONDITIONS OF PRETRIAL RELEASE

          Thomas O. Rice Chief U.S. District Judge.

         COMES NOW Erik Carlson, PRETRIAL SERVICES OFFICER presenting an official report upon the conduct of defendant Eugene Martin Stillwell, who was placed under pretrial release supervision by the Honorable U.S. Magistrate Judge John T. Rodgers, sitting in the Court at Spokane, Washington, on the 14th day of August 2018, under the following conditions:

         Standard Condition #1: Defendant shall not commit any offense in violation of federal, state or local law. Defendant shall advise the supervising Pretrial Services Officer and defense counsel within one business day of any charge, arrest, or contact with law enforcement. Defendant shall not work for the United States government or any federal or state law enforcement agency, unless Defendant first notifies the supervising Pretrial Services Officer in the captioned matter.

         RESPECTFULLY PRESENTING PETITION FOR ACTION OF COURT FOR CAUSE AS FOLLOWS:

         Violation #1: Eugene Martin Stillwell is alleged to have been arrested for delivery of a controlled substance, attempt to elude, and second degree assault on April 14, 2019.

         On August 14, 2018, the undersigned officer reviewed the conditions of pretrial release supervision with Mr. Stillwell. Mr. Stillwell acknowledged an understanding of the conditions, which included standard condition number 1.

         The following information was gathered from Spokane Police Department report number 2019-20062570.

         On or about April 10, 2019, a confidential informant (CI) for the Spokane Police Department (SPD) agreed to perform a controlled purchase of heroin from “Randy.” The CI purchased heroin from “Randy” on numerous occasions. “Randy” is reportedly a resident at 2932 East Wabash Avenue in Spokane, Washington. The CI has purchased heroin from “Randy” at his residence. The residence is owned by Jeannette Stillwell. The undersigned officer believes Jeanette Stillwell is Mr. Stillwell's sister-in-law.

         Prior to the controlled purchase, the CI was provided with pre-recorded currency to perform the controlled purchase.

         At 8:32 p.m., the CI arrived at Randy's residence to meet with him. The CI was observed, by a police officer, entering a gate from the alley onto the property at 8:32 p.m.

         A vehicle pulled into the driveway of the residence, and an unknown male entered the residence. The male was observed removing a grocery style bag from the trunk of the vehicle prior to entering the residence. The aforementioned vehicle was confirmed to be registered to Mr. Stillwell. A background check revealed Mr. Stillwell has used several aliases when contacted by law enforcement. Mr. Stillwell's aliases include, Randolph Peterson and Randy L. Peterson.

         At 9:25 p.m., the CI returned to the police officers and provided them with a plastic bag displaying a brown substance that field tested positive for heroin. The CI stated he purchased the brown substance from “Randy” and described him as an “old white male.” The CI paid Randy with the pre-recorded currency.

         It should be noted, one of the investigating officers had performed surveillance on the above-noted residence on April 12, 2019. The officer observed approximately 10 individuals access the residence in a 30-minute time frame on that date. These individuals each remained at the residence for a short period of time then left. Based on these behaviors, the officer believed narcotics were being sold to these individuals. In addition, the officer noted he had arrested a female in January 2019, who left the aforementioned residence after purchasing methamphetamine from “Randy.” Furthermore, law enforcement has received drug complaints about the residence noted in this petition.

         Subsequently, on April 13, 2019, the investigating police officer was able to obtain a search warrant to arrest Mr. Stillwell (also known as “Randy) for delivery of a controlled substance, as well as, ...
