Spokane Valley Police: Stolen Vehicle Recovered; 2 Arrested For Multiple Charges

Posted: Updated:

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE DEPT: On July 11th, just before midnight, Spokane Valley Sheriff's deputies arrested 2 suspects for several charges after a traffic stop for reckless driving turned into a pursuit and a stolen vehicle recovery.  

The incident began when Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy Clay Hilton observed a silver 2000 Chevrolet P/U traveling at a high rate of speed on East Sprague west of Park Road. As Deputy Hilton tried to catch-up to the vehicle, the driver, later identified as 27-year-old Nickolas N. Davis, continued driving  recklessly; turning on several roads while maintaining a rate of speed well over the posted speed limit, crossing over several  lanes of travel, and failing to obey a traffic light.  

Deputy Hilton got behind the vehicle to conduct a traffic stop as it traveled East on Appleway Blvd. from Park Road at 70 mph. Davis began to slow after Deputy Hilton activated his emergency lights but he quickly accelerated again in an attempt to flee. 

The pursuit, now traveling westbound on Sprague, reached speeds up to 90 mph as dispatch advised Deputy Hilton the vehicle driven by Davis was reported stolen on July 4th.  

Davis continued to flee even after running over a set of spike strips and two unsuccessful PIT maneuver attempts. The pursuit came to an end at Magnolia and North Foothills Drive after Deputy Jeff Thurman, who joined the pursuit to assist, executed a successful PIT maneuver.    

Deputy Hilton and an assisting Spokane Police Officer used their patrol cars to quickly blocked the stolen vehicle and eliminate any escape routes.  

Davis and the passenger of the vehicle, identified as 28-year-old Haley L. Adams, were taken into custody. During a search of the vehicle, Deputy Hilton located a clear plastic baggie between the passenger's seat and the center console which contained a white crystalline substance believed to be Methamphetamine. 

A field test kit later showed a presumptive positive reading for Methamphetamine.  

Both Davis and Adams were transported to the Spokane County Jail for felony charges of Possession of a Stolen Vehicle and Possession of a Controlled Substance, Methamphetamine.  

Davis was also booked for a felony charge of Eluding, a felony warrant for Possession of a Stolen Vehicle and a misdemeanor charge of Driving while Suspended 2nd degree.   

Adams received an additional felony charge for Possession of a Controlled Substance, Oxycodone for two pills found in her possession during the intake search at the jail.
