Four minors busted in Liberty Lake after night of drinks

Thu., Aug. 8, 2013

Liberty Lake police arrested four minors at Harvard Road and Euclid Avenue shortly after 3:30 a.m. on July 31.

Officers charged a 16-year-old Otis Orchards girl with being a minor operating a vehicle after alcohol consumption. Two 20-year-old men and an 18-year-old man were charged with being a minor in possession/consumption of alcohol.

A man called police at 11:44 a.m. on July 30 to report that his car was broken into in the 1800 block of North Pepper Tree Lane. He said that a GPS system and more than $200 in alcohol were stolen, police Chief Brian Asmus said. At 6:15 p.m. that same day a woman reported finding items worth more than $700 missing from her car at the same location. The thefts are under investigation.

A resident in the 1200 block of North Fairway Street reported finding egg on a car windshield and blue spray paint on his garage door when he arrived home shortly before 6 p.m. Sunday. He told officers that he believed he knew who did it. Officers contacted two juvenile boys who reportedly admitted to the vandalism, Asmus said.

Two vehicles in the area were also painted with blue spray paint. The juveniles and their parents agreed to work with the victims, he said.

Also during the week of July 29 to Aug. 5, officers made three arrests for driving with a suspended license. One of the drivers also faces an additional charge of operating a vehicle without a required ignition interlock device. Officers handed out two citations for expired registration, five for failure to show proof of liability insurance and four for speeding.

Additional citations were given for violating an intermediate license, providing false evidence of insurance, defective brake lights/turn signal, defective tail lights/stop lights, hit-and-run unattended vehicle, failure to yield right of way and use of a cellphone.
