Spokane police dog makes first arrest

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police say a new K9 Officer is off to a good start after he helped find one of four suspects in a stolen vehicle investigation. Right now two people are in police custody, but officers say they are looking for two other suspects as well.

The incident that led to the arrests started Monday morning at 1:30. Police say they got a call about four people, three men and a woman, seen taking parts off a white Honda and putting those parts into a silver Lexus. It happened in the 2400 block of west Dean Avenue.

When officers arrived on scene all four suspects took off on foot. Neighbors say they saw two of the suspects run into an apartment complex in the area. Officers were able to determine the white Honda was stolen.

They were able to catch the female suspect after a short pursuit. Then, new K9 Officer Maximus was called in to help find the third male. Maximus was able to track that suspect down about two blocks away. This was Maximus's first deployment as an SPD officer.

Police say they knocked on the apartment neighbors saw the two other suspects run into but no one answered. SPD detectives will follow up on those two suspects Monday morning.

As it stands right now, 25-year-old Brandon Voss and 24 year-old Krystal Elder were both arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail, booked for Possession of a Stolen Vehicle. The silver Lexus the suspects were using has been impounded as part of an ongoing criminal investigation.
