Morgan Acres Prowl Check Nets Arrest

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE:

A Spokane County Sheriff's deputy's efforts to provide extra patrols in the Morgan Acres area of north Spokane County paid off with the arrest of a suspect for misdemeanor charges.

Deputy Daryl Smith was checking the area on Monday January 30th at 10:40 p.m. when he observed a male step out of the shadows from behind Morgan Acres Community Church located at 7319 N. Regal. When the male noticed the patrol vehicle, it appeared he might flee as he quickly turned left and then right.

Deputy Smith made contact and identified the male as Yuriy V. Siriy, 22, of Spokane. Siriy stated he was walking home and needed to urinate so he went behind the church to stay out of sight. During the contact, Deputy Smith arrested Siriy for two local misdemeanor warrants.

When searched, Siriy was wearing a nylon belt with multiple pockets containing 19 keys of various shapes and sizes. Most of the keys appeared to have been shaved. Shaved keys are commonly used to defeat locks during crimes such as vehicle theft, vehicle prowling and burglary.

Siriy became verbally abusive and uncooperative after he was placed in the patrol vehicle.  Although handcuffed behind his back, he was able to unlatch his seatbelt during the transport to the Spokane County Jail. The transport was completed with the assistance of a second deputy riding in the vehicle after Siriy was restrained and his seatbelt secured.

Siriy was booked into the jail on misdemeanor charges of Possession of Burglary Tools and Obstructing in addition to the misdemeanor warrants for Hit & Run of an Unattended Vehicle and Hit & Run of an Attended Vehicle.
