Lack of inventory may close store, police said

Spokane police have arrested two men following a burglary of Kelly’s Custom Car Audio overnight Wednesday that included loss of a large amount of stereo equipment.

So much equipment was taken from the business, 5518 N. Market St., that it likely will close for a period of time due to a lack of inventory, police said.

Jonathon D. Marquiss, 32, and Christopher J. Cannata, 37, were booked Thursday into Spokane County Jail in connection with the burglary. Both have previous felony convictions, police said.

Marquiss also was booked on two counts of a felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a stolen firearm and possession of methamphetamine.

During the investigation, Officers Tamie Johnson and Deanna Schmidt found evidence at the burglary scene that led them to a city residence where Marquiss was taken into custody.

Leads there took them to a second house, two storage units and the vehicle believed to have been used in the burglary. Detectives Lonnie Tofsrud and Brian Cestnik helped in obtaining and executing search warrants for the several locations.

Recovered property in the case may have come from other burglaries as well, police said.
