Spokane Valley Deputy In Right Place At Right Time

Posted: Updated:
Spokane Valley Police Department Press Release:

On Sunday February 3rd, Deputy Scott Bonney was in the area of Walmart located at 5025 East Sprague conducting follow-up on a separate incident.  At approximately 2:15 p.m., he observed several Walmart employees and customers waving their arms and yelling at him as he observed a purple minivan speeding away from the area exiting the parking lot. 
 
Deputy Bonney caught up to the minivan, stopped it and contacted the three occupants at Sprague Ave. and Custer Rd.  At about the same time, Walmart employees called into 911 and advised a white female had been in the store and fraudulently returned some items for cash.  The suspect, after she was confronted by the staff, ran out of the store and jumped into a van which was now stopped by a deputy. 
 
After talking to Walmart Asset Protection staff, Deputy Bonney believed one of the females in the van, identified as 30-year-old Jennifer L. Glander, was the suspect.  After being informed of her rights, Glander agreed to waive her rights and answer questions. 
 
During the investigation, Glander admitted she had receipts from a previous purchase when she entered the store.  She went through the store and located the matching items on the sales floor and brought them to customer service to return them.  She received $69.47 in cash from the return of the space heater and screwdrivers and started to walk toward the exit when she was contacted by another store employee.  She got scared and ran out of the store and jumped into the van with her friends which drove away.  Glander stated her friends knew nothing about her plan and did not go into the store. 
 
Deputy Bonney confirmed with a store employee Glander was the suspect and she did enter the store alone.  He informed Glander she was under arrest for Trafficking in Stolen Property 1st Degree, a felony and she was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail on that charge.
 
The two other occupants of the van were released without being charged.
 
A short time later, Deputy Bonney was informed the report completed by Walmart personnel was ready to be picked up.  When he returned to the store, he was given a copy of a Retail Trespass Notice which showed Glander was served with the notice advising she was trespassed from all Walmart locations for 2 years back November of 2011.
 
Due to this additional information, Glander was advised she was also being charged with felony Burglary 2nd degree.
