SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash.-- Spokane Valley Sheriff’s deputies were able to track down stolen firearms after piecing together several different crimes.
Deputies responded to a burglary call Wednesday on the 2600 block of North Park Road from a residence. When the homeowner arrived home from work he found six firearms and jewelry missing. While the deputies were conducting their investigation they learned that the grandson of a neighboring residence may have taken part in the burglary. Deputies spoke with the grandson but did not develop enough evidence to implicate him at that time.
The next morning, deputies responded to the area of Trent and Park. Witnesses said two males appeared to be prowling the area and appeared suspicious. When deputies arrived on scene they located the grandson from the night prior attempting to hide from them.
The grandson was detained and interviewed by Spokane Valley Detectives about the burglary the night prior. He told investigators he was at the burglary the night prior along with Seth Stensgar, 25, and Grant Brough, 28. The grandson said Stensgar was with him in the morning prowling the area of Trent and Park but fled the scene prior to deputies arriving.
The grandson said Stensgar fled the scene in a newer, silver or gray Nissan Altima with Montana license plates. He said he had not seen Brough that morning but provided an address where he lived.
Detectives responded to Brough's residence near the 2100 block of West Fairview. When they arrived on scene, Brough fled from the home and left in a vehicle. Detectives attempted to initiate a traffic stop on him but he didn’t stop and led police on short vehicle pursuit.
Brough eventually stopped his car and ran from his near the area of Euclid and A Street. Deputies were unable to located him but they did find a female subject that remained in the vehicle Brough ran from.
Later Thursday evening, the Spokane County SWAT Team served a search warrant at Brough's residence. Brough was not located but a stolen vehicle was located at the residence. Two of the stolen firearms have been located since the burglary.
