2nd suspect arrested in Pullman robbery

A second suspect has been arrested in a home-invasion robbery in Pullman last week.

Jeremiah J. Lafave, 27, was booked into the Idaho County Jail after being arrested at a relative's home in Steites, Idaho, about 5 p.m. on Saturday.

He's awaiting extradition back to Whitman County, where he faces charges of robbery, kidnapping, burglary, theft and harassment.

Police believe Lafave and Matthew E. White, 35, of Clarkston, tied up a man at gunpoint at an apartment complex last Tuesday and stole carious items. White was arrested Thursday.

Surveillance photos and videos from a convenience store helped identify the suspects.

"Pullman Police Chief Gary Jenkins thanks those who provided tips and the assisting law enforcement agencies that led to the identification and arrest of the suspects so quickly," according to a news release.
