Valley crime spree lands man back in jail

A young man sentenced last month for property crimes is back in jail, accused of a car-prowling and window-breaking spree in Spokane Valley. 

The suspect, Chad A. Radden, 20, was spotted skateboarding away from Northwest Tire and Automotive, 324 N. Pines Road, as a business alarm sounded just before 1 a.m. Friday.

One witness said she saw him in the area of Main and Pines the same time she heard broken glass - police found him with a Game Boy stolen from a 2005 Nissan Murano in the 12500 block of East Main, according to court records.

Radden also is accused of smashing seven windows on a GMC bus parked at Raggedy Ann and Andy Child Care, 12504 E. Main. Police also believe he broke windows at Instyle Hair and Skin Car Studio and H & R Block, 321 N. Pines.

Surveillance video at Holiday Gas Station, 411 N. Pines, shows a man fitting Radden’s description trying to break out a window with a baseball bat, police said. Sheriff’s deputies who arrested Radden said he appeared intoxicatied. He remains in Spokane County Jail on $10,000 bond, charged with two counts of second-degree malicious mischief, two counts of third-degree malicious mischief, and single counts of car prowling, third-degree theft and minor in possession of alcohol by consumption.

Records show Radden was given two years probation and credited for 16 days served in jail after pleading guilty to second-degree burglary last month. He’s also on probation for a drunken driving charge in North Idaho and for second-degree vehicle prowling and hit-and-run attended vehicle convictions in Spokane County.
