Man jumps fences but still can’t escape

A man wanted on a Washington Department of Corrections warrant jumped over fences and made it through six yards before police caught up to him Tuesday. Colton P. Kilgallen, 21, told Deputy Damon Powers he was “just being stupid” and apologized for running after Powers arrested him, according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.

A homeowner in the 12900 block of East Olive Avenue called police about 6:30 p.m. and reported Kilgallen was in the area. Powers knew Kilgallen has a history of fleeing police, so four other deputies and two Liberty Lake officers arrived to help.

The caller allowed Powers into his backyard, and he recognized Kilgallen on the back porch before Kilgallen ran.
Deputy Dale Wells and two Liberty Lake police officers arrested Kilgallen, according to the release.

Kilgallen was arrested on the DOC warrant for fourth-degree assault and new charges of resisting arrest and eight counts of trespassing, apparently for each private property he accessed.

Woman falsley claims to be fugitive

A passenger who lied about her identity during a traffic stop Monday provided the name of another woman who had a warrant for her arrest.

Michael Lynn Polello, 37, provided her real name after a records check revealed the warrant for the other name, the Spokane County Sheriff's Office said today.

Polello didn't have any warrants, but she did have a small baggie of methamphetamine in her purse, deputies said.

Deputies encountered Polello after stopping a Toyota 4-Runner for making an improper turn near West Wellesley Avenue and North Wall Street in Spokane about 8 p.m.

The driver, 45-year-old Rodney Harold Bruhjell of Spokane, received a warning but allowed the deputies to search his SUV, which turned up a marijuana pipe and led deputies to ask Polello for her name.

Polello was booked into jail for possession of methamphetamine and making false statements.  Bruhjell was cited and released for possession of marijuana. Polello was ordered released on her own recognizance after appearing in court this afternoon.
