SPOKANE-- Officials released Wednesday, the names of three suspects related to a series of gasoline thefts in Spokane and Adams Counties.

A photo was released of a green Dodge pickup and white Chevrolet or GMC Suburban used by the suspects who stole more than $5,000 in fuel, using stolen gas cards taken from a Spokane Valley company, and the Central Valley School District.

A citizen reported seeing the Dodge truck to Spokane Police and the white SUV was later located. 

Both vehicles were searched, as were two residences.  Evidence was recovered linking three suspects to the thefts.

The principle suspect is identified as 24-year-old Richard William Tennant.

Tennant will face four counts of First-Degree Trafficking Stolen Property, one count of First-Degree Theft, five counts of Second-Degree Possession of Stolen Property, two counts of Second-Degree Burglary and five counts of Second-Degree Vehicle Prowling.

Tennant also has an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Idaho.  He is described as a white male, 5’10'', 170 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.

The owner of the Dodge truck, 38-year-old Jacob Anthony Lorenzo, faces a single count of First-Degree Trafficking Stolen Property, three counts of Third-Degree Theft and one count of Possession of Stolen Property. 

Authorities say Lorenzo had attempted to disguise the Dodge pickup by painting the silver door green and changing its wheels and tires.

Sasha Stanton, 27, faces three counts of First-Degree Trafficking Stolen Property, three counts of Third-Degree Theft and one count of Second-Degree Possession of Stolen Property.

Neither Lorenzo nor Stanton has been arrested, but their whereabouts are known.
