Man in 100 mph chase gets 100 months

A 23-year-old Spokane man once considered one of the city’s top 10 repeat offenders was sentenced this morning to eight years in prison.

Allen S. Easley was in and out of jail several times last spring for property crimes and a freeway chase with police in which he reached speeds of 100 mph.

Now he’ll have a spot at a state prison after Superior Court Judge Sam Cozza approved a plea deal that sentenced him to 100 months in prison.

Easley pleaded guilty this morning to nine felonies, including four counts of second-degree burglary, two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm, and single counts of forgery, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and first-degree trafficking in stolen property, said Deputy Prosecutor Eugene Cruz.

Easley, who police say has a swastika tattoo on the back of his head, was arrested after a freeway chase in May but posted bail, then was arrested again a couple weeks later while trying to sell stolen property at a Hillyard pawn shop.

Suspects may be linked to car-theft hangout

A fugitive sex offender arrested after a police chase on Monday and a repeat criminal arrested at a pawn shop on Tuesday may be connected to the same stolen-car hot spot in the 1100 block of West Jackson.

Chris L. Gilbert (right) was arrested with a stolen Honda after fleeing police from that area of West Jackson on Monday.

Another Crime Stoppers fugitive who jumped out of the car, 31-year-old Amy J. Hunter, was arrested near Monroe and Indiana later that day on theft and stolen property charges. 

About the same time and in that same area of West Jackson, police recovered a car that had been stolen from St. Charles Catholic Church, 4515 N. Alberta St., during Mass on Sunday. 

The next day, Allen S. Easley (right) and Brittnei Fawver were arrested at Pawn One trying to sell guns police believe were stolen from the car outside the church.

Police investigation into car theft activity in the 1100 block of West Jackson continues, said Officer Jennifer DeRuwe.

Repeat offender busted at pawn shop

A burglary suspect arrested after reaching 100 mph during a freeway chase two weeks ago but later released from jail is back behind bars after police say he tried pawning stolen guns.

Allen S. Easley (right), 23 and considered one of Spokane top 10 repeat offenders, was picked up Tuesday at Pawn One, 3705 N. Market, along with Brittnei J. Fawver, 19 (left).

Easley’s current stay at the Spokane County Jail is his fourth since mid-April.

“This is a chronic pattern of crime sprees committed by prolific repeat offenders who continue plague our community,” said Officer Jennifer DeRuwe in a news release. 

Easley was arrested earlier this year on car theft and drug charges but spent little time in jail, documents show. He left jail after appearing in Superior Court on car theft and drug charges but was back by the end of April, however, after a suspected check forger told police it was Easley who stole the check during a burglary at a car dealership.

During questioning in connection with that case, Easley reportedly admitted to another burglary and told police of a woman who has equipment to make bogus checks using legitimate bank account numbers stolen from bills left in mail boxes, according to court documents. Easley appeared in court May 3 but left jail shortly after, and prosecutors have not yet filed burglary charges.

Police arrested the woman accused of making checks, Kristina Fricke, as well as Easley’s girlfriend, Randi Shepherd, April 30 in connection with the burglary investigation, but neither has been charged.

Also arrested was 36-year-old Kimberly L. Fawver (right), on charges of possession of a stolen motor vehicle, forgery and identify theft. She was arraigned on Tuesday and remains in jail.

Easley said he used Kimberly Fawver’s car to commit at least one of the burglaries, according to court documents. It’s unclear if Brittnei and Kimberly Fawver are related.

Easley returned to jail after a high-speed police chase May 9. He posted $20,000 bail May 14 but remains behind bars after appearing in Superior Court today on new charges.

Police believe Easley and Britteni Fawver may be responsible for other thefts in Spokane and released their mug shots Wednesday in hopes alleged victims will file reports with Crime Check, (509) 456-2233.

Easley has a swastika tattooed on the back of his head, police said.

Man who hit 100 on I-90 is burglary suspect

A 23-year-old Spokane man arrested after he reached 100 mph during a police chase on Interstate 90 is a suspect in two burglaries that occurred about a week before the chase.

Allen S. Easley appeared in court on May 3 on charges of forgery and two counts of second-degree burglary after a suspected check forger told Spokane police that Easley stole the check from Alfonso Motors, 3206 N. Division, according to court documents.

A suspected accomplice, 36-year-old Kimberly L. Fawver, appeared in court today on possession of a stolen motor vehicle, forgery and identify theft charges.

Easley reportedly told police that he used Fawver’s car during a second burglary in the 600 block of W. Kiernan. Easley also told police that Kristina Fricke has equipment to make checks using account numbers stolen from mail boxes, according to court documents.

Detectives arrested Fricke and Easley’s girlfriend, Randi Shepherd, April 30.

All three left jail but Easley quickly returned after allegedly fleeing a police officer who tried pulling him over for driving reckless in a stolen vehicle May 9. Easley was arrested after spike strip flattened a tire.

He’s already out of jail. It was his third stint in a month - he was arrested around April 12 on charges of possession of a stolen motor vehicle and possession of a  controlled substance.
