Car Thieves Lead Spokane County Deputies On Late Night Chase

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: Sunday evening at about 10:15 p.m. Deputy Audie was patrolling the area near Francis and Market. Deputy Audie observed a Toyota pickup truck traveling east on Francis near Market that had a defective rear tail light. 
 
Deputy Audie activated his emergency lights in an attempt to stop the vehicle. The vehicle accelerated in an obvious attempt to flee from Deputy Audie. Dispatch also advised the vehicle had been reported stolen the prior day in Spokane City.
 
Several north end deputies and Spokane City officers responded to the scene to assist Deputy Audie. Deputy Audie pursued the stolen vehicle for a short time prior to Spokane City officers disabling the stolen vehicle's front and rear passenger side tires at the intersection of Market and Euclid. The stolen vehicle continued to drive recklessly with sparks coming off the front and rear passenger side rims. Deputy Audie chose to terminate the pursuit at this time.
 
After Deputy Audie terminated the pursuit he thought he witnessed a head on collision on Haven Street. Deputy Audie checked the area only to see the two occupants from the stolen truck running west through residential neighborhoods. There had not been a collision.
 
Spokane City officers and deputies set up a perimeter around the area. A Spokane City officer contacted an adult male identified as 34-year-old Gary Patterson near the area of the stolen truck. Patterson eventually admitted he was a passenger in the vehicle.
 
Sheriff K9 Brax and his handler responded to the scene.  Within a short amount of time K9 Brax located the driver, 26-year-old Kyle Costello, hiding on top of a six foot roof. Costello was taken into custody without incident.
 
Costello was booked into Spokane County Jail on the charges of Felony Eluding and Possession of a Stolen Vehicle. Patterson was booked into Spokane County Jail on the charge of Possession of a Stolen Vehicle.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Cobwebs hang from the exposed pipes running along the ceiling of a dimly lit, dirty basement. The underground labyrinth is used as storage space at Mount Saint Michael’s Academy in Spokane. But several decades ago it served as a safe haven. During the Cold War, the Office of Civil Defense designated the basement at Saint Michael’s as one of hundreds of fallout shelters throughout the city.
