Traffic school paper IDs theft suspect

A shoplifting suspect was identified as a traffic school student after the teenager dropped his paperwork in the parking lot while fleeing the store Sunday, police say.

Cameron Rose, 18, was on a lunch break from class at the Sheriff's Office training center when employees at Rosauers, 10618 E. Sprague Ave., contacted instructors and said one of their students had possibly stolen soda and candy.

A loss prevention officer tried to detain the man, but he escaped by running through the parking lot. The officer picked up paperwork Rose dropped while running, “and to his surprise, the paperwork showed Mr. Rose was scheduled for class right next door at the Training Center,” according to a news release by Craig Chamberlin, spokesman for the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.

The security officer identified Rose after the students returned from lunch. He was cited and released for third-degree theft and dismissed from traffic school.
