Call nets burglary arrests and stolen car

   A suspicious-person call ended up with a ride to the Spokane County Jail for a couple Sunday morning after the it was caught stealing items from an unoccupied home and placing them into a Subaru that was also stolen.

   Spokane Police officers Dave Kennedy and Bill Hager responded at 8:30 a.m. Sunday to a vacant home in the 1200 block of North Jefferson Street.

   Upon arriving, they found Cory M. Gonzales, 24, inside the home, police spokeswoman Officer Jennifer DeRuwe said in a news release. Gonzales had been sleeping in the car with his 20-year-old girlfriend, Megan D. Petit.

   “Both had been seen by witnesses going inside the home, removing belongings, and putting them in their car,” DeRuwe wrote.

   Officers then discovered “their car” had also previously been reported stolen by someone else. That registered owner gave officers permission to search the car where officers discovered several stolen items from the vacant home, DeRuwe said.

   The officers booked Gonzales and Petit into jail on the charges of residential burglary and possession of a stolen vehicle.

   “This is another example of the SPD’s dedication to investigating and solving property crimes,” she wrote.
