Stolen monster truck leads to arrest

A 42-year-old man is accused of stealing a monster truck from a Spokane Valley car dealership.

Steven W. Dungan appeared in Superior Court on a car theft charge Tuesday after police say he crashed the stolen truck at an apartment complex about eight blocks from Affordable Motors, 4229 E. Sprague Ave.

KHQ TV reports that Dungan was arrested after the truck, equipped with monster tires, wedged under a carport.

Dungan remains in Spokane County Jail on a probation hold and $17,500 bond for one count of possession of a stolen motor vehicle. Just this month, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor theft charge, according to news archives.
