Prowler Arrested In N. Spokane For Attempted Vehicle Theft

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE POLICE DEPT: Vehicle prowling and vehicle thefts occur throughout the city but there has been an obvious increase in the north Spokane area. On Friday at about 2:00 AM,  an alert citizen observed 31-year-old Randy Norberg prowling cars in an apartment complex at 49 E. Pine Ridge Ct. 

The citizen gave valuable updates on Norberg's actions until Officer Chimienti arrived on scene and took him into custody.  Norberg was armed with a large knife as well as a small sword. 

Thieves and prowlers commonly carry weapons and tools that can be used to hurt anyone who tries to contact them. The citizen made the right decision to be a good witness and allow Officers to make the dangerous contact with the suspect. 

Officers investigating the incident determined that Norberg had tampered with the ignitions on two vehicles in an attempt to steal them. He was transported to jail and booked for 2 counts of attempted vehicle theft.

 There are several large apartment buildings in north Spokane that have been plagued with recent thefts. Hopefully Norberg's arrest will decrease those property crimes but he is not the only one out there.  We urge citizens to continue looking out for each other and reporting suspicious activity in their neighborhoods.

    KHQ.COM - An average house cat weighs between 7-10 pounds but one Spokane woman has a cat whose size is almost unheard of. Out of the corner of your eye, Ollie might be mistaken for a dog... he's that big! Not your normal house cat, Ollie is a Savannah cat, a hybrid breed that's a cross between a serval cat and a domestic cat. So while it's not surprising that he's bigger than a domestic cat, his size is still shocking.
