Two suspects, both with lengthy criminal histories, have been tied to a stolen car crashing into an Otis Orchards convenience store in October, according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.

Scott Fraser, 36, and Susanna Ozbat, 31, are being held at Spokane County Jail on suspicions they drove a stolen Dodge Neon into the KH Grocery Market at 21121 E. Wellesley Ave. around 4 a.m. on Oct. 17, according to a news release. Surveillance footage captured a man and a woman police identified as Fraser and Ozbat running from the scene shortly after the Neon smashed through the store’s front doors, severely damaging the grocery and car.

Fraser, a 10-time convicted felon according to police, has been in jail since a few weeks after the incident facing unrelated criminal charges.

Ozbat, an eight-time convicted felon, was booked into jail late Tuesday. She faces charges of burglary, malicious mischief, possession of a stolen vehicle and possession of methamphetamine. Prosecutors plan to charge Fraser on similar counts.
