2 arrested in Garland District SWAT raid

Investigators seized stolen property and drugs and arrested two men today while serving a search warrant at a home in the West Garland District.

The Spokane County Sheriff's Office Burglary Task Force and Investigative Task Force developed information that stolen property and drugs were being trafficked out of a home in the 400 block of West Kiernan Avenue after a “lengthy investigation,” according to a news release.

A SWAT team helped secure the home.

Nathan Carter, 29 was arrested for second-degree possession of stolen property, first-degree trafficking in stolen property and possession of heroin.

Jeffrey Jennings, 32, was arrested for possession of meth and heroin and second-degree possession of stolen property, as well as a warrant for drunken driving.

Seized stolen property includes electrical musical instruments, multiple laptop computers, overhead projectors and other electronic components. Some of the items were matched to theft reports through serial numbers, but many will need additional follow up by investigators to identify.
  

Man’s keen eye nabs burglary suspect

A homeowner interrupted a burglary Wednesday afternoon and provided such a thorough description of the man that police were able to arrest a suspect about an hour later

The victim was at his home in the 1700 block of East Illinois Avenue about 2 p.m. when he heard someone trying to get in the front door. He chased the would-be burglary away and provided not only a through description of him to officers but also the license plate number of the car in which he fled, according to the Spokane Police Department.

Officer Ken Applewhaite spotted the car about an hour alter and contacted the driver, Robert Monreal Hoguin, 40, who matched the description of the culprit. The homeowner identified Hoguin as the man who tried to break into his home.

Police say they found heroin in Hoguin's coat. He was booked into jail on charges of attempted residential burglary and possession of a controlled substance.

Hoguin was arrested for car theft Feb. 3, but he was released when prosecutors did not file charges within 72 hours, according to court records.

13-time felon accused of gun burglary

A burglary suspect accused of stealing a truck and gun from a northwest Spokane home is a repeat offender with a 19-year history of property crimes, police say.

 Grant Douglas Brough, 35, was one of two men who ran from a traffic stop near East Sanson Avenue and North Mayfair Street late Tuesday, according to Spokane police. Police dog Leonidas tracked Brough to a garage in the 100 block of East Everett Avenue.

2 more charged in Stevens Co. homicide

Two additional suspects have been charged with murder in the shooting death of a Stevens County man in July.

Jesse J. Fellman-Shimmin, 27, (pictured) and Collette Marie Pierce, 25, appeared Thursday in Stevens County Superior Court on first-degree murder charges for the death of Gordon Feist, 63, during what investigators believe was a botched robbery attempt. They also are charged with second-degree murder as an alternate.

They are to be arraigned Tuesday, said Deputy Prosecutor Lech Radzimski.

The accused triggerman, Eric Lee Booth, 26, has been in jail on a murder charge since July 20.

Stabbed man sought after jail no show

UPDATE: Casarez was arrested in Coeur d'Alene on May 20.

A burglary suspect who was injured in a wild fight involving a knife and a Taser is wanted by authorities.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for tips that help arrest Jose R. Casarez, 31, who police say was stabbed in the back when he and several others, including Sandra L. Blindauer, 19, forced their way into Blindauer's ex-boyfriend's home and beat him March 17.

Casarez pleaded not guilty to first-degree burglary on April 18 and was to report to the jail for booking by April 22.

He never did, leading to a no-bail arrest warrant on May 3.

At least five others have been charged in the case, which Superior Court Judge Michael Price called “really just an extraordinary situation that could have ended up much worse.”

“But all things considered, it's still pretty bad,” Price said in March.

Casarez, 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds, last gave a home address in the 3900 block of North Crestline Street in Spokane.

Anyone with information on his current location is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or submit tips online.
