Maid to coworker to motel owner to police: chain of custody problem?

A maid who found a baggie of what turned out to be methamphetimine gave it to a coworker, who gave it to the motel owner, who called the police. The motel guest in that room -- who was subsequently convicted of possession -- challenged the chain of custody. The trial court admitted the evidence. Division 3 affirmed. State v. Fridley, 2005 WL 225390 (Wash. App. Feb. 1, 2005) (unpublished).
