[ARCHIVED] KCSO and SWAT Team Arrest Suspected Drug Dealer

Post Falls, ID – On September 28th, 2020, at approximately 04:00 PM, the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office along with the Kootenai County Joint Agency SWAT team executed a search warrant in the 2000 block of N. Columbine Rd. in the City of Post falls, ID.  Following up on information obtained by a Kootenai County Sheriff’s Deputy, KCSO detectives obtained a search warrant for the residence for suspected illegal drug violations.

Due to the criminal history of the suspect, Christopher C. Gober age 42, and a previous search warrant at the same residence conducted by KCSO in January 2020 where an illegally possessed firearm was seized, the SWAT team was utilized to execute the search warrant.    

The search warrant was executed without incident and Gober was detained.  Detectives located methamphetamine, cocaine, paraphernalia, and items associated with the distribution of illegal drugs throughout the house.  Detectives arrested Gober for possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and possession of cocaine.  Gober was also arrested for an arrest warrant on 09/23/20 for possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a firearm stemming from the January search warrant.  This is Gober’s 24th time being booked into the Kootenai County Public Safety Building.
