And just like the goods in her shop, CJ is on her way to a new life, one far from the one she once lived.

The net successfully wrapped around its target, an inflated structure that had just been deployed as part of the test. The distance covered nearly 20 feet (6 meters).

    SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - You should never run from deputies, but it's an especially bad idea to do it on a bicycle. Just after 10 p.m., Spokane Valley Deputy Chris Giacomini tried to stop a man on a bike for an equipment violation near Sprague and Locust. Instead of stopping for the fully marked patrol car with lights activated, the man, later identified as 41-year-old Victor L. Oles, continued on his way.
