Valley theft, burglary spree earns 2 years

A crime spree that included vehicle prowling, burglary and prescription fraud earned a 23-year-old Spokane Valley woman about two years in prison this week. 

Jenalee Jean Hall, who police say is a cousin of Eddie Ray Hall , was sentenced Tuesday to 25 months in prison, the same sentence handed to her former roommate and partner in crime, Miranda L. Watson, last April.

The duo was accused of a crime spree that included vehicle prowling and thefts at Spokane Valley and South Hill fitness clubs and locker room burglaries at East Valley and West Valley high schools.

Spokane Valley police were flooded with tips about the locker room thefts after distributing surveillance photos of the women (Hall is to the left; Watson is to the right.) Hall also was charged with fraudulently filling OxyContin prescription and once told detectives she and her friends plotted a theft while sitting in a car "ingesting narcotics" with her young son present, according to previous reports.

Superior Court Judge Maryann Moreno ordered Hall to pay $985 restitution after pleading guilty to possession of a controlled substance, third-degree assault, first-degree theft and three counts of second-degree possession of stolen property and $3,342 restitution after pleading guilty to two counts of second-degree theft, second-degree identity theft, second-degree theft with intent to resell and forgery.
