Police say group stole man's bling, pants

An $18,000 piece of jewelry worn during the filming of a rap music video led to a robbery and assault that included theft of the victim’s pants, according to court documents filed Friday.

Spokane police gang unit members as well as police and sheriff’s SWAT teams raided two homes Thursday in an ongoing investigation targeting eight suspects.

Three suspects, Monica R. “Boo” Sanders, 32, Tasha M. Tensley, 26, and Roderick J. Thomas, 21, remain in Spokane County Jail on $75,000 bond each after appearing in court Friday. Police still were looking for five others late Friday.

The group is accused of beating Jeffrey J. Frazier, 29, and shocking him with a stun gun before stealing his jewelry, including the diamond-studded, acorn-shaped gold medallion, then removing his jeans.
