KHQ EXCLUSIVE: Police Find 3 Guns, 2 Drug Pipes In Car With Suspect And Missing Endangered Teen

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - Newly-released court documents obtained by KHQ are shedding more light about the relationship between Douglas Hawkins, 24, and the missing endangered 14-year-old Colville teen he was found with.

Coeur D'Alene police arrested Hawkins after spotting the pair in a maroon Subaru passenger car matching the license plate that was picked up on a license plate recognition camera in Post Falls because the Stevens County Sheriff's Office asked law enforcement agencies to be on the look out for Hawkins' car, believing he may be with the girl.

Kootenai County Court records show the pair met on Facebook, and began additionally communicating via text messages and phone calls. The girl told police she saw Hawkins "a number of times before they ran away together."

Records show the girl left her Colville, Washington home around 1 a.m. on July 26th, and took with her clothes and three rifles from her home. She walked a mile before meeting Hawkins and getting in his car. She told police "she took the rifles because they planned on living in the woods."

Hawkins told police he "loves her and he just went through a divorce." He also told police "he knew she was underage during the time of this incident and he knew his actions were wrong."

In court Tuesday, Judge Stow recounted how after the pair began their relationship the girl's parents filed a no-contact order between Hawkins and their daughter. By law, he was supposed to remain at least 500 feet away from the girl.

In court, Hawkins waived his right to an attorney and chose to represent himself. He pleaded guilty to violating a no-contact order and the Judge sentenced him to the maximum allowable penalty of 1 year in jail on that charge, calling the circumstances of the case "egregious."

Hawkins is also facing a charge of second-degree kidnapping from Stevens County in Washington. He will be extradited back to that jurisdiction to face court proceedings on that count.The girl has been reunited with her parents. KHQ is not naming her because she is a minor and the victim of crime.

Hawkins has a criminal history that includes resisting arrest in 2011, and a domestic violence assault in 2012. He may face an additional charge of felon in possession of a firearm because of the guns found in the car. A federal firearms charge may also be filed because he crossed state lines.
