On May 12, 2016 at approximately 2:30 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a vehicle collision with a mailbox and fire hydrant in the area of the 200 block of South Custer in Spokane Valley. The driver later identified as 31-year-old Tommy L. Agullo, reportedly left the vehicle while it was still rolling and was walking away from the scene.
Sergeant Justin Elliott located the abandon Cadillac STS Agullo was driving in the 4800 block of East 3rd.
Deputy Clay Hilton contacted Agullo, who appeared to be intoxicated, walking on 2nd near Chronicle. Deputy Hilton checked Agullo’s name through the computer and was informed Agullo had a confirmed felony, Department of Corrections (DOC) Escape warrant for his arrest. When Deputy Hilton took Agullo into custody for the warrant, he located a loaded 9mm handgun in Agullo’s right shorts pocket and a Cadillac key fob, money and marijuana in his left.
A further check of Agullo’s criminal history showed he is a convicted felon (Assault 1st & Burglary 2nd) making it illegal for Agullo to possess a firearm. The key fob was later determined to be from the involved Cadillac.
Deputy Todd Miller investigated the hit and run collision scene and confirmed Agullo was the only person in the car. He determined the Cadillac was traveling the wrong way on 3rd, hit a mailbox, drove through a yard and hit a fire hydrant causing a considerable amount of damage.
Agullo was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm 1st Degree, Driving Under the Influence Alcohol/Drugs, Hit and Run-Unattended and his felony DOC warrant.
