Watchful woman helps bust theft suspect

A suspected car prowler was arrested early today after a woman spotted him stash stolen property before he pilfered a neighbor's garage.

Loren Camron Kintner, 31, was arrested near Trent Avenue and Ella Street following the report of suspicious activity in the 8100 block of East Carlislie, according to the Spokane Valley Police Department.
 
The caller said she watched Kintner stash a red box behind a vacant house, then remove a white box from a neighbor's open garage. As police were speaking with Kintner, a waitress from a nearby restraint told officers a distinctive sweatshirt had been stolen from her car.
 
Police found Kintner with the sweatshirt, along with a stolen cordless drill and a calculator stolen from a car in the 8700 block of East Courtland. He also had 38 vehicle keys, police say. The red box allegedly stashed by Kintner contained a $4,000 fan stolen from a truck in the 8300 block of East Jackson, and the white box contained an ornamental Christmas doll.
 
Kintner, a transient, was booked into jail on charges of second-degree burglary, second-degree theft, possession of motor vehicle theft tools and three counts each of second-degree vehicle prowling and third-degree theft.
 
The stolen property was returned to the victims after it was photographed for evidence.
