Man captured on video camera breaking into car arrested, charged with vehicle prowling

Days after a kxly4 report shows him breaking into a car, Spokane Police arrested 26-year-old Jeramy Allen on two counts of second-degree vehicle prowling.

Allen was taken into custody in downtown Spokane Tuesday after officers investigated reports of vehicle prowling in the area of Wall St. and Riverside Ave.

Last week, a car-prowling victim from the South Perry neighborhood sent video to kxly recorded from the Owl Car Cam inside of their car. The video shows clear footage of Allen sitting in the car’s passenger seat, checking the center console and other compartments before leaving the car.

kxly4 aired the story on Thursday, Nov. 15., and it gained lots of traction on social media with multiple people identifying and “tagging” Allen on the post.

Corporal Johnson of the Spokane Police Department recognized Allen’s neck tattoos and sweatshirt from the kxly4 story, who then turned Allen over to the Patrol Anti-Crime Team who had been investigating the prowling. They developed probable cause to arrest Allen for two counts of second-degree vehicle prowling.

Additional charges may be added.
