Spokane Valley Detectives Break-Up Crime Ring

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. –  A Spokane Valley woman could face at least nine counts of identity theft after detectives from the Spokane Valley Police Department served a search warrant at her home on Tuesday morning.

Authorities arrested Daisha Cooper this morning and said her husband, Jason Cooper, was already in jail on unrelated charges.

Detectives found multiple fake credit cards, fake identification cards and real identification cards that belong to other people in the couple's home, according to Detective Jeff Welton.

"These particular folks have been involved in a lot of this type of activity," said Welton.  "By getting these folks off the street, those crimes obviously will stop because they were out (of jail) regularly."

Jason Cooper was arrested in Liberty Lake on March 12 after leading police on a high-speed chase.  Officers later recognized his car as one that matched the description of a vehicle used in a home burglary.

The investigation led detectives to the Coopers home in search of stolen property.

Jason Cooper was previously charged with breaking into several homes, including one belonging to Ernie Creach, the son of a former pastor who was shot and killed in his driveway by a sheriff's deputy last August.

Detectives plan to serve at least one more search warrant in the case and say more arrests are possible.
