Spokane Police arrested 38-time convicted felon Fred W. Nolan on Thursday on suspicion he burglarized a mail room.

A police statement said Nolan, 43, was arrested on charges of second-degree burglary and malicious mischief.

The mail room at the Flour Mill, 621 W. Mallon Ave., was broken into on Sunday, and tenants’ mail was stolen, according to police documents.

Investigators used surveillance video to determine Nolan was a suspect in the investigation. An officer spotted Nolan on West Mallon Thursday afternoon and arrested him.

Nolan has 38 felony convictions, including theft, burglary, possession of stolen property and malicious mischief dating back to 1992, the release said.

He is scheduled to appear in Judge James Triplett’s court this afternoon.
