REX OLSON, SPOKANE PD :279
Normally we would say call us and let us do our jobs
if you see something suspicious.
but in this case they were just checking on what seemed
odd to them and things went south from there.
ROB SAYS DESPITE BEING KICKED IN THE FACE.
HE'S HAPPY ONE LESS CAR THIEF IS OFF THE STREETS.
Spokane is a great community there's a lot of people
here that work really hard for their stuff and the
thieves shouldn't be just helping themselves to it.
And that's the whole point of it.
I mean these guys are working 12-14 hour days for
their stuff guys like this have no business taking
THE MAN IS FACING 5 DIFFERENT CHARGES.
AND POLICE TELL ME THIS
MAN IS CURRENTLY UNDER INVESTIGATION
FOR OTHER CRIMES AS WELL.
REPORTING LIVE IN NORTH SPOKANE.
