Stolen property bust linked to ID theft ring

A big stolen property bust that culminated with five raids yesterday appears to be connected to a big identity theft ring detectives uncovered a couple weeks ago.

Ronald R. Foreman is accused of masterminding a multi-state check fraud ring that bilked businesses out of thousands of dollars.

A tipster who helped police with Foreman’s case also said that Foreman planned to rob a methamphetamine dealer named Tracy Pirello, according to a search warrant filed today in Spokane County Superior Court.

Pirello is named in the warrant as an accomplice to John “Animal” Rose, who was arrested with several others Tuesday in a stolen property and drug investigation by the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.

Detectives searched Rose’s property at 19201 E. Boone Ave., where other suspects arrested Tuesday allegedly stored stolen goods. Cole T. Monson reportedly got methampethme from Tamara D. Geurin, 28, in exchange for the goods, according to the search warrant.

Geurin already is in jail on federal drug charges, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court. She pleaded not guilty to possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of meth earlier this month.

Monson appeared in court today, along with Rose and the others arrested Tuesday. Read more about them here.
