Trio Nabbed In Failed Robbery Attempt In Spokane Valley

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:  Three Spokane Valley residents were arrested Thursday night after their attempted home-invasion robbery went sideways because their intended victim slammed his door in their faces.

The suspects, 20-year-old David N. Randall, a 15-year-old boy and 16-year-old boy, were fleeing the targeted home in the 2800 block of South Havana when they were spotted and detained by Deputy Tyler Smith and WPS Trooper Darren Britton at 29th and Cherry.

Randall was wearing a backpack in which the investigators found two loaded pistols, Beretta and Ruger semi-automatics.  They also found latex gloves, zip ties, three walkie-talkie radios, three stocking caps, several knives and extra ammunition.

Deputy Dan Knight contacted the intended victim and learned that one of the suspects had knocked on his door about 5:40 p.m. and asked to see his son.  When he said the son wasn't home, a second suspect stepped from around the corner and stuck a pistol in his face.

The homeowner quickly slammed the door shut and set the deadbolt lock.  The three would-be robbers ran away.

Interviews with the suspects revealed that had made a specific plan about how to rob the homeowner, but hadn't planned on him resisting.

Randall was booked into the Spokane County Jail on First-Degree Robbery and Second-Degree Assault charges.  Both teens were booked into the Spokane County Juvenile Detention Center on the same felony counts.  In addition, the 15-year-old was charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.
