Suspects' story about bags of food doesn't add up and leads to arrest

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - Two men were arrested on Sunday after they were caught with a large amount of frozen meat. 

Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy Jerad Kiehn had taken numerous reports of burglaries happening in the Spokane Valley area early Sunday morning, so when he was saw two men walking down the street with large black bags over their shoulders, he decided to stop and talk with them. 

Both men, 35-year-old Travis Noble and 27-year-old Thomas McCaslin, agreed to speak with Deputy Kiehn, and told him the bags contained food from a woman named "Rochelle." Rochelle was apparently moving and gave McCaslin and Noble the food, according to their story. One of the bags contained a large amount of frozen lamb chops. When a deputy contacted "Rochelle" she said she didn't give McCaslin or Noble any food, so Deputy Kiehn began looking elsewhere. 

Soon he found footprints leading to a nearby house, where the doors of the three buildings located at the house had been forced open. Deputies contacted the owner of the property, who confirmed the food found in the bags was hers and had been locked inside a freezer at her home. 

McCaslin and Noble were transported to the Spokane County Jail and booked for Residential Burglary and 3rd Degree Theft.
