Spokane Police seeks help identifying car dealership vandal suspects

Three killed after car crashes into river near Ponderay

SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane Police need help identifying four suspects that vandalized cars at a downtown dealership on Third and Ash Monday afternoon.

Several officers were dispatched to a fenced, off-site storage lot for dealership cars, and the alleged victim told police that he had chased four suspects out of the lot after catching them vandalizing a vehicle.

According to police, the alleged victim explained that BNSF Police recently broke up a homeless encampment on the far end of the lot, which bordered on BNSF property.

The man suspected that some homeless people started destroying cars over the next few days as retaliation.

Officers found what was left of the broken-up encampment at the end of the lot.

Spokane Police are currently reviewing surveillance footage from nearby locations to identify the suspects. The alleged victim described two of the suspects:

  • 30-40 year old white man with long hair, five-feet ten-inches tall and 210 pounds, wearing long-sleeve olive green shirt and jeans
  • 30-40 year old white or Native American man, five-feet ten-inches tall and 200 pounds, wearing gray sweats and a white t-shirt, has a messy beard

Anyone with information on the incident or suspects is urged to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
