Police said Spitzer ran from officers when they confronted him about a car theft early Wednesday morning on Clearwater Loop.

People living in the area were told to leave their homes or shelter in place during the chase.

At one point, police believed Spitzer was inside a shed in the backyard of a home on Lynwood Ct. That’s when the Post Falls Special Response Team was activated, but Spitzer was not found.

If you have seen Spitzer or have any information about where he could be, you are urged to call the Post Falls Police Department at 208-773-3517.
