Trio’s theft arrest yields stash of cash

Spokane County sheriff’s deputies arrested a trio of Seattle-area forgery suspects Friday who allegedly stole thousands of dollars from Spokane banks in a scheme involving stolen credit cards. One of the suspects had $26,000 hidden in her bra when she was arrested.

Arrested on charges of first-degree theft were Corey Jones, 24, Lukeisha A. Harris, 24, and Elicionne L. Washington, 23.

Deputies responded to Washington Trust Bank, 438 E. Hastings Road, after a woman attempted to get cash using a stolen credit card, said Sgt. Dave Reagan, sheriff’s spokesman.

The three suspects were found and later arrested at a North Side Chase Bank. Harris had about $26,000 cash hidden in her bra, Reagan said.

The trio had counterfeit Oregon driver’s licenses and cards stolen from six credit companies.
