A fourth suspect has been charged in a home-invasion robbery in which one suspect reportedly said she wanted to give the victim “a taste of his own (BS).”
Braiden M. Connor, 18, appeared in Superior Court Friday on several felonies connected to a May 11 incident at 2922 E. Providence.
Already charged are Aaron T. Vanscoik, 18; the victim’s ex-girlfriend, Lisa Jo Wareham, 40; and Wareham’s 17-year-old son, Levi R. Ehli.
Wareham reportedly told detectives she recruited the teens to give the victim “a taste of his own bulls**t,” according to an affidavit. “She said that no one was supposed to get hurt except “maybe a broken kneecap was OK.”
Connor reportedly told police June 16 that he was with Vanscoik and Ehli but only walked about five feet into Dahlen’s home, according to an affidavit. He also said he was in the car when Wareham and Ehli used the victim’s food stamp card at Wal-Mart, and when either Ehli or Vanscoik tried to use a stolen credit card at an ATM, according to the affidavit.
Connor was booked into Spokane County Jail Thursday but had posted bond by Friday night.
Three suspects recently have pleaded not guilty to charges related to a May home-invasion robbery - including a teen charged in a similar robbery two weeks prior.
Aaron T. Vanscoik, 18, reportedly admitted to police that he and two others attacked William Dahlen in his home at 2922 E. Providence as he slept just before 1 a.m. on May 11, according to court documents.
The assailants beat Dahlen with bats before they stole his wallet, then used Dahlen’s stolen food stamp card a few minutes later the Wal-Mart on North Colton.
Surveillance video helped police identify 40-year-old Lisa Jo Wareham - Dahlen’s ex-girlfriend - as a suspect. She was arrested at her home in the 4900 block of North Washington June 10 and reportedly told detectives she recruited her son and three others to give Dahlen “a taste of his own bulls**t,” according to an affidavit.
“She said that no one was supposed to get hurt except “maybe a broken kneecap was OK,” according to the affidavit.
Wareham’s 17-year-old son, Levi R. Ehli, was arrested that day and is charged as an adult with first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, second-degree assault and conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery.
Vanscoik was arrested June 14 and pleaded not guilty July 1. He’s also charged with a robbery April 29 in which he and two others are accused of kicking in an apartment door at 1223 E. Hoffman and stealing a TV and an Xbox 360 video game console. A 14-year-old boy also is a suspect.
A third suspect, 22-year-old Tony A. Darling, Jr., pleaded not guilty to robbery and burglary charges in Superior Court on Tuesday. Police say Darling is a Norteno gang member.
All robbery suspects are in jail except Ehli, who is out on $20,000 bond.
