KSCO arrests 2 in stolen vehicle, stolen property found

HAYDEN LAKE, Idaho - Saturday night around 9:00 p.m., a Kootenai County Sheriff's Deputy located two suspects driving a stolen vehicle near the intersection of N. Lakeview Dr. and E. Miles Ave. in Hayden Lake. 

The vehicle's license plates had been removed, but after stopping the vehicle, the deputy recognized the driver as a suspect in the car theft. 

The two people in the car, 26-year-old Tanner Flowerdew and 34-year-old Tesandra Graupman, were arrested without incident. 

A search of the car found numerous items of stolen property believed to be related to recent burglaries in Coeur d'Alene. 

Flowerdew, who has been booked into the Kootenai County Public Safety Building 16 prior times, was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of a stolen financial transaction card, and possession of paraphernalia. Graupman was arrested for possession of a stolen financial transaction card. 

KCSO reported Sunday that additional charges are expected after more victims are contacted.
