Spokane Police: Carjacking Suspect Caught In 16 Minutes

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police responded to the victim of a carjacking in the Northern Lights Brewery parking lot in the area of Hamilton and Trent at 9:48 pm on Friday. The victim stated a male approached her and racked a pistol grip shotgun at her and demanded her keys. The victim pled with the suspect to get her 10-day-old baby out of the back seat. She was allowed to get the baby out and the suspect took off in her car.  

Ofc. D. Storch located the vehicle at 9:52 pm in the area of Broadway and Havana. The suspect lost the officer in that area, but the vehicle was located quickly in the Fed Ex lot at Broadway and Havana unoccupied. 

Ofc. D. Lesser found the car empty and WSP Trooper Spencer saw the suspect running through the Fed Ex lot between the trailers. The area was quickly contained by SPD. The suspect ran into the Fed Ex building which was still occupied by Fed Ex employees.
