Police Arrest Career Criminal...Again

Spokane Police Press Release:

SPOKANE, Wash. - The nighttime Patrol Anti Crime Team arrested prolific criminal Kristopher Roybal, just minutes after he broke into several cars parked near the Spokane Arena for the Chiefs' hockey game Saturday night.

Officer Wheeler saw the 34 year old Roybal driving a red Cadillac in the area and knew his license was suspended.  Roybal attempted to hide his car in a parking lot, but Officer Wheeler spotted him at 1300 N. Lincoln.  A woman's purse and a car stereo could be seen inside the car and, with Roybal's criminal history, they were believed to be stolen.

With events going on at the Lincoln Center and the Spokane Arena, parking lots were full and cars lined the streets.  PACT officers located three victims of vehicle prowlings in the 400-500 block of W. Sharp, two of them had windows smashed out and purses stolen.

Officer Wheeler obtained a search warrant for the car, where one victim's purse was recovered in the front seat and the second victim's purse was found in the trunk.  Also found were multiple tools and shaved keys, used to gain entry into vehicles.

Kristopher Roybal, labeled a "ROP" (Repeat Offender Program) in the police database, was booked into the Spokane County Jail on 3 charges of 2nd Degree Theft.  Roybal's 21 year criminal history includes 125 separate bookings into our local jail on charges that include Vehicle Thefts, Possession of Stolen Property, Forgery, and Possession of Controlled Substance.

Please let this incident be a reminder, especially during the holiday shopping season, not to leave any valuables inside your vehicle.  If you must leave items in your cars, please conceal them the best you can.
