Spokane Police K-9 Captures Two Burglary Suspects

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: On Thursday morning around 1:47 AM, Spokane Police Officers responded to a report of a Commercial Burglary Alarm at the Pro Shop of the Esmeralda Golf Course at 3933 E. Courtland.

As the first responding officer, Officer Aaron Ames, arrived on scene, he saw a red Mitsubishi leaving the scene at an extremely high rate of speed west bound from that location. Officer Aames attempted to catch up and stop the vehicle, but was unable due to its reckless nature. 

The car drove through the Andrew Rypien Field and over citizen's yards in order to get away.  Officer Aames was able to track the vehicle through a combination of citizen reports and by following a fluid trail left from the vehicle after it drove through Rypien Park. Officer Aames located the vehicle abandoned in the parking lot of an apartment complex at Euclid and Lee.

Other responding officers set up containment around the scene. Residents of the apartment complex were able to identify the two occupants and stated they ran westbound. Officer Jake Jensen and his K-9 Duke arrived on scene. Officer Jensen and Duke tracked and located one suspect on the east side of the N. 3000 block of Martin and then the second suspect on the west side of the N. 3000 block of Martin. Both were taken into custody without incident.

Officer Aames returned to the Golf Course and was able to obtain evidence linking both of the two suspects to the Burglary. Arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail for one count of 2nd Degree Burglary each was Dmitriy A. Stepanov, 26-years-old, and Andrey S. Lybakh, 23= years-old. Both are from Spokane.
