Car thief suspect found with shaved keys in his possession

SPOKANE, Wash.- Spokane Police Officers say one person is under arrest after he fled from police in a stolen vehicle. According to officers, the incident ended in the 1200 block of West Montgomery at around 2:30 Wednesday morning. 

Officers say they ran the license plates of a Subaru Legacy, which came back as a confirmed stolen vehicle. The officers tried to pull the suspect over, but the suspect would not stop. Officers gave chase but after a couple of minutes, the pursuit ended when the suspect hit an Avista power pole behind a church on West Montgomery.  

The suspect then left the stolen car and fled on foot in an attempt to avoid police. Officers continued the chase on foot, and were able to apprehend the suspect without further incident. Officers say upon further investigation, they found a large number of shaved keys in his possession, which are used by car thieves to steal cars. 

The suspect, 40 year-old Aaron Harding, was transported to the Spokane County Jail for Vehicle Theft and Eluding Officers. He is expected to make his first court appearance late Wednesday or Thursday morning.
