Two high school truants accused of burglarizing Spokane Valley homes were expelled from West Valley High School on Wednesday.
James Dalton Brux, 18, and a 15-year-old boy were arrested after electronics and guns were stolen from a home in the 7600 block of East Baldwin Avenue. Police say the teens also stole electronics from a home in the 7700 block of East Indiana Avenue.
Another suspect, 18-year-old Joshua C. Gaylor, was arrested at Brux’s home on North Lily Road after police say he hid a stolen rifle and shotgun and was preparing to sell them. Officers later learned that Brux and the boy had the guns in front of the school.
Brux was booked into jail on charges of first-degree burglary, theft of a firearm and first-degree trafficking in stolen property.
Gaylor was booked on two counts of second-degree possession of a stolen firearm and one count of second-degree possession of stolen property.
The 15-year-old was booked into Spokane County Juvenile Detention on charges of first-degree burglary, residential burglary, possession of a stolen firearm and first-degree trafficking stolen property.
