SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Spokane Valley police have recovered a large quantity of property stolen in a pair of residential burglaries that occurred last weekend.

In custody is 28-year-old Anthony T. Falasco who is charged with Second-Degree Identity Theft and Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle.

Detectives have probable cause for the arrest of his partner in crime, Marcus R. Jolly, 27, last known address of 1328 E. Rich.  He is currently wanted for Residential Burglary, but both he and Falasco could face additional felony charges as the investigation is furthered.

According to a Property Crimes Sergeant, a residence was burglarized in the 11100 block of E. 22nd sometime last week.  In that break-in, the family's Dodge Durango was stolen and the home "cleaned out."

The second burglary occurred in the 12000 block of E. 24th and that family's Mitsubishi Outlander was stolen.  That home was "cleaned out" as well, but the burglary was not discovered until Thursday when the family returned from a Hawaiian vacation.

Luckily, Spokane Police had stopped the Outlander after the burglary occurred and identified the driver and one of the passengers, Falasco.  In a follow-up to the traffic stop, members of the gang investigation team recognized Falasco's name and contacted him for further interviews.

During questioning, they discovered he possessed a check stolen in the E. 24th burglary.  It was made out to him.  That tidbit of information became key to linking the burglary, discovered afterward, to the suspect.

A Spokane Valley Police detective is leading the investigation, and said Friday afternoon that both the Outlander and Durango have been recovered, as well as jewelry and other items stolen from both homes.

Anyone with information on where Marcus Jolly may be is asked to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
