13-year-olds Arrested for Crime Spree

Posted 7/10/2014 3:06 PM by MDGREGORY

On July 8th, 2014, at 9:00 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Deputy Brad Humphrey responded to the 2400 block of N. Wilbur Road on a missing child call. The complainant said her 13-year-old son and his 13-year-old friend had been missing since 3:00 p.m. that afternoon.

While speaking with the complainant, a Chevrolet Malibu with front end damage drove into the parking lot dragging a plastic bumper cover under the vehicle. Deputy Humphrey observed the complainant’s son and friend that were missing inside the vehicle. He recognized them from previous contacts.

The juvenile males told Deputy Humphrey they broke into the fenced area of Spalding’s import area earlier in the day. They said they found the keys inside the Malibu and drove it through a gate on the east end of the property. Both said they had each driven the vehicle during their joyride. Deputy Humphrey spoke with the owner of Spalding’s who estimated the damage of the gate near $3000.00. Both juvenile males said they had no idea why they stole the vehicle.

• Both males were booked into juvenile for the felony charges of 2nd Degree Burglary, Theft of a Motor Vehicle and 2nd Degree Malicious Mischief.
