Suspect who drove dead Spokane man to Montana arrested

From another source:  Leo Rodriguez is “from Spokane”.

It’s pretty obvious this guy is connected to the Mexican drug cartels.  And the long and short of this is that Rodriguez is undoubtedly and illegal alien, running dope from Mexico up the pipe line to Spokane.  Valley, WA is just south of Chewelah, off State Route 395 north from Spokane to Colville.   This is why there is so much crime in Spokane; a fact which the Spokane Police Department and Spokane County Sheriff’s Office both try to ignore.
