Spokane County Sheriff's Office: 5 Burglary Suspects Arrested

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: Spokane County Sheriff's detectives working with Spokane Police detectives arrested five suspects believed to be connected to several burglaries and the trafficking of stolen property. 
 
Sheriff's Investigative Task Force detectives have been conducting surveillance of the suspects who appeared to be actively committing burglaries in Spokane County and City. 
 
On Saturday detectives learned suspects committed two confirmed burglaries and possibly four or five more. During these incidents the suspects were observed entering locations north of Spokane and in Stevens County.
 
Spokane County Sheriff's detectives working with Spokane Police Department PAC Team were able to stop two vehicles believed involved in the burglaries. During one of the stops Sheriff's investigators fired at the suspect vehicle. 
 
After a short pursuit the vehicle was eventually stopped in the area of Perry and Half Moon Rd. where the suspects fled on foot but were quickly taken into custody. At least one of the suspects is currently awaiting trial for previous burglary charges.
 
No one was injured during this incident and the names of the suspects have not been released since this is an ongoing and active investigation.
 
The Critical Incident Protocol has been implemented and the Spokane Investigative Regional Response Team (SIRRT) is now investigating.
 
Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich stated, "This is a great example of Spokane County detectives working with Spokane City detectives and Washington State Patrol to disrupt a large burglary ring which has endangered and affected the lives of our citizens."
