Spokane sheriff says leave crime-fighting to us

The Spokane sheriff’s office says it’s seeing more incidents where security guards or citizens confront shoplifters or robbers.

The office says this is putting more people at risk, as suspects may have a gun and be under the influence of drugs.

The sheriff’s office said Monday it discourages people confronting criminals and says witnesses should call police.
