Spokane Valley Woman Gives Police False Name That Had An Outstanding Warrant

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - A 37-year-old Spokane Valley woman was arrested Monday night after she gave the name of an acquaintance as her own.  Turns out, the acquaintance had an outstanding warrant.

Deputies Clay Hilton and Justin Elliott were in the area of Wellesley and Wall in Spokane about 8 p.m. when they saw the driver of a Toyota 4-Runner make an improper turn.  They stopped the SUV and identified the driver as 45-year-old Rodney Harold Bruhjell of Spokane. 

They counseled Bruhjell on the fine points of traffic law and then released him with a warning.  Afterward, they asked for and received permission to search the SUV for contraband.  Hilton had the female passenger step out of the Toyota.

The search turned up a drug pipe containing marijuana, and Hilton then asked the woman for her identity.  She provided a name, but a records check of the name showed an outstanding warrant for that person.

Hilton took the female into custody at which time she admitted she was actually 37-year-old Michael Lynn Polello.  She didn't have any outstanding warrants, but did have a small baggie of methamphetamine in her purse.

The two deputies released Bruhjell after citing him for Possession of Marijuana, then drove Polello to the Spokane County Jail where they booked her for Possession of Methamphetamine and Making False Statements.
