SPOKANE, Wash. -- Three repeat offenders now face more than 25 charges after they were allegedly caught with hundreds of dollars worth of stolen goods.
Some alert citizens called police when they saw a stolen Dodge pickup driving through the Shadle Park and Indian Trail neighborhoods on Wednesday. The owner reported the truck stolen that morning.
Officers tracked down the vehicle to the Value Village parking lot in the 700 block of West Boone, and noticed it full of stolen property.
Police say Jeremy Hall, 26, was driving the truck. Billy Olson, 24, and Reuben Miller, 23, were both passengers. Spokane police believe the trio stole the truck keys when they broke into the owner’s house on West Nora the week before. They returned to steal the truck this week, then used it for four local burglaries, according to police. The owners of the stolen goods identified the property as theirs.
Investigators were able to link the suspects to other burglaries throughout Spokane Valley and Northeast Spokane, as well.
Police call these suspects prolific offenders. They say the trio has been arrested for driving other stolen cars, also with stolen property.
The three suspects now face a total of 26 charges including trafficking of stolen property, theft of a firearm and second-degree burglary.
