The Liberty Lake Police Department now has a name to go with the photo of a man suspected of breaking into a storage unit at Storage Solutions on East Mission on July 15 and stealing a motorcycle. He is Scooter D. Carey, 36, of Longview, Wash., and police believe he is still in the area.  

Police traced the truck the suspect used back to its registered owner, a resident of Kalama, Wash., and contacted the police department there for help. “They are very familiar with the registered owner,” said Liberty Lake Police Chief Brian Asmus. “He's a career criminal over there.”

The police there sent Liberty Lake police a list of the man's known associates, one of whom was Carey. Asmus said he has also heard that a woman identified as Carey's girlfriend was arrested in Coeur d'Alene last week and a truck full of stolen goods was recovered. A motorcycle was among the items recovered, but Asmus said he doesn't know yet if it is the same one stolen from Liberty Lake. Police are now looking for Carey, who is facing charges of commercial burglary and theft of a motor vehicle.
