SPOKANE-- Spokane Police say more charges are likely for the burglary suspects arrested Wednesday on Spokane's South Hill. Detectives are working to connect them to more home burglaries.
Matthew Dobson, Nicholas Limpert and Nicole Phillips were arrested for residential burglary. David Dobson was arrested for assaulting an officer.
Spokane Police Sergeant Joe Peterson said "They're very well known they've been in jail lost and lots. My team alone has arrested them lots and I'm confident we'll continue to arrest them."
Police say they followed Limpert, Matthew Dobson, and Nicole Phillips to around a dozen locations. After police had enough evidence to charge them with burglary they moved in for the arrest.
Officers found the trio was storing stolen loot at a South Hill home where Dobson was staying. Officers say the suspects fought with them. Both sides suffered minor injuries.
Police say Matthew Dobson and Nicholas Limpert have prolific criminal histories. Limpert alone has been arrested around 70 times.
Limpert is no stranger to the system. He served six years for a conviction as a juvenile. KREM 2 News spoke with Limpert in 2007, and he promised to be a better man for his then infant son. "I just think every day what I should have done, what I could have done to keep myself from getting into trouble and everything I could have done to do it over, to do it differently." In 2000 he killed a mentally ill janitor during a robbery.
Police say David Dobson tackled a detective as he detained people on scene. He faces assault charges.
Detectives say there will likely be more charges to follow for the burglary suspects.
The three men are being held on bond at the Spokane County Jail.
Phillips, who is pregnant, was released.
