Spokane dad arrested for selling coke

An unemployed Spokane father was arrested on suspicion of selling drugs after police found cocaine in his car during a traffic stop.

Thomas J. Boring's 7-year-old son was with him in his gray Ford pickup when a Spokane County sheriff's deputy stopped the vehicle near East Sprague Avenue and South Chronicle Road about 3:45 p.m., according to a news release by Sgt. Dave Reagan.

Deputy Jeff Thurman said Boring, 56, had tried to turn south on Chronicle in front of eastbound traffic but lurched back into the two-way turn lane to avoid a collision, Reagan said.

Boring was sweating and “extremely fidgety” with rapid speech when Thurman contacted him, Reagan said. He was arrested for driving with a suspended license, and Thurman found cocaine on him, then discovered a bag with another four packages of the drug on the truck's back floorboard.

Thurman also found a drug ledger in the vehicle; he says Boring lost his job in January and began selling cocaine in July to pay bills.

Boring said he'd just picked up his son “and that no drug sales occurred in his presence,” Reagan said.

Boring, who has a previous felony conviction for manufacturing a controlled substance, was booked into jail for possession of cocaine with intent to deliver, third-degree driving while suspended. He also was cited for failure to wear a seat belt and failure to provide insurance. His brother picked up his son.

Mud thwarts father-son theft suspects

A father and son became stuck in the mud Tuesday while leading police on an interstate chase after attempting to steal merchandise from the Wal-Mart just east of the Idaho-Washington border.

Michael R. Dyczok, 64, (left) and Michael Dyczok, Jr., 35, (right) were arrested near East Wellesley Avenue and North Harvard Road just before 11 p.m. after leading Post Falls police on a high-speed chase in a blue Volkswagen Jetta.

Post Falls police began watching Wal-Mart after an employee said the men had filled storage containers with merchandise earlier that day and placed them near the fire exit. Police saw the men grab the storage containers and flee through the fire exit, then speed away in the Jetta.  

But the father and son duo drove down a dead end road just across the Washington border and got stuck in mud, police say. Liberty Lake police assisted with the arrests.

Police say the Dyczoks threw a stolen X-Box from their car during the chase. It was recovered, along with other stolen merchandise located in the Jetta.

The men were booked into jail on charges of eluding police and tampering with evidence. The younger Dyczok also faces a charge of driving on a suspended California license.
