Stop for help leads to DUI, pot arrest

A Deer Park man was arrested early today after a deputy who stopped to help him with his broken down truck found $1,200 and nearly two ounces of marijuana in the vehicle.

Trevor L. Weger, 30, was with his Toyota pickup at Highway 395 and Hatch Road when Spokane County sheriff’s Deputy Robert Brooke contacted him about 2:45 a.m.

Brooke said Weger appeared to be intoxicated and called a state trooper for assistance. The trooper arrested Weger for driving under the influence; and a passenger who was later released handed Brooke a plastic container with four baggies of marijuana.

The trooper, who Sgt. Dave Reagan said was searching for vehicle registration, found cash and marijuana in the truck’s center console. The pot weighed 47 grams, and police counted more than $1,200 in cash, according to a news release by Reagan.

Weger was booked into Spokane County Jail on a drunken driving charge and a felony charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.

Snowy footprints lead to fleeing suspect

A teenager already targeted by Crime Stoppers was arrested Wednesday night after a Spokane County sheriff's deputy followed his footprints through snowy north Spokane County woods. 

Anthony Deshon Fuerte, 18, was reported to have broken an acquaintance's car window and threatened to kill him while wielding a wooden club when Deputy Robert Brooke stopped him in an SUV at Highway 2 and Eloika Lake Road.

Fuerte jumped out of the SUV and ran into the woods as Brooke yelled at him that he was under arrest “and knew that he would head for his grandmother's address in Riverside,” according to a news release by Sgt. Dave Reagan, Spokane County Sheriff's Office spokesman.

Brooke and Deputy Gavin Pratt followed Fuerte's footprints through deep snow and arrested him just south of Elk-to-Highway Road.

Fuerte, nicknamed “Frosty the Felon” in the news release, was wanted on theft and malicious mischief charges from Juvenile Court when Crime Stoppers issued a reward for his capture on Tuesday “after North Spokane County patrol deputies complained about his ongoing criminal activities in their areas of responsibility,” Reagan wrote.

Fuerte is due in Superior Court today on new charges of harassment - threats to kill, third-degree malicious mischief and resisting arrest.
