CdA police looking for person with purloined pills

Coeur d’Alene police are looking for a thief who stole a bottle of prescription pills sometime late Tuesday by cutting a hole in a screen window and swiping them from the sill.

The owner of the home in the 1500 block of Sixth Street called police after 8 p.m. Tuesday to report the theft. Authorities believe the thief walked up to a south-facing window that was cracked and cut a hole in the screen with a knife or other sharp object, then took the bottle of pills that is valued at $20. Police did not say what type of pills were taken, though the thief selected a specific brand of medicine and left other prescriptions on the sill alone.

The case is being investigated as a felony residential burglary. No arrests have been made.

Pot, pills found during jail strip search

A Spokane woman set to serve four months in jail for money laundering has been charged with another felony after corrections deputies found drugs during a strip search.

Rebecca Suzanne Townley, 33, had pills and suspected marijuana concealed in a condom when a corrections deputy searched her during booking on July 27, according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.

Another deputy also saw the contraband during the search, according to court documents.

Townley later admitted to investigators that she'd smuggled the drugs into the jail, documents say.

She appeared in Superior Court on Friday on a charge of prisoner in possession of a controlled substance.
