Spokane Police Connect Footprint Burglar To Wishing Star Burglary

SPOKANE, Wash. - On December 19th, 2011 just before 11pm Spokane Patrol Officers responded to an alarm at Salon Sentric. Officers were able to track through the freshly fallen snow with shoe tracks that lead to the location of 29-year-old Jermaine M. Garland.

Later the same morning Officer Tilley investigated a similar burglary located at Peters and Sons Flowers (512 E Pacific) and charged Garland on the additional burglary.

Spokane Police Department Targeted Crimes Unit (TCU) has been investigating a number of recent commercial burglaries that appear similar to burglaries Garland was arrested for.

Follow-up investigation by Detective Staben revealed that there was sufficient evidence to charge Garland with a total of 6 commercial burglaries. One of these burglaries included Wishing Star Foundation where numerous Christmas gifts were stolen that had been recently donated by the Washington State Patrol.

Unfortunately Detectives have been unable to recover the Wishing Star Foundation's stolen toys; it appears Garland traded stolen items to support his methamphetamine habit.

Jermaine Garland is a prolific Repeat Offender and is currently being held on $25,000 bond.
