DEVELOPING: Man Arrested In Spokane Valley For Arizona Homicide

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE:  A school resource deputy and his Explorer partner arrested a pair of men sleeping inside a stolen pickup early Saturday in Spokane Valley, and one of the suspects was later charged in connection with a Tucson, Arizona homicide.

Deputy Chris Young and Explorer Jerrin Neal were patrolling the area of Appleway and Spokane Bridge Road when they noticed a pickup backed off the roadway about 1:40 a.m. The truck had no front license plate.

The two got out to investigate and ran the back license plate through sheriff's dispatch. They received a stolen vehicle hit out of Arizona with a caution that anyone in the vehicle was linked to a homicide and should be considered armed and dangerous. 

Other deputies and a Liberty Lake Police officer responded to help and the deputies ordered two men sleeping beneath the truck's canopy outside. They arrested 26-year-old Jonathan G. Baumbach and 21-year-old Jorge Alberto Osorio, both Tucson residents, for Possession of a Stolen Vehicle.

The truck was seized for forensic examination and the two suspects were booked into the Spokane County Jail. Detectives in Arizona were notified of the arrest.

On Monday, Spokane County major crimes Detective Mike Drapeau interviewed the suspects and developed information that Baumbach had committed the Arizona homicide. 

After conferring with detectives there, an arrest warrant was faxed to Spokane and Drapeau had a Fugitive From Justice charge added to Baumbach's stolen vehicle count. He also released Osorio from custody.

Deputy Young is the School Resource Deputy at Mount Spokane High School during the school year.  He and other SRD's augment sheriff's patrol efforts during the summer.
