3 men charged in burglary, gun thefts

Three Spokane men have been charged with a series of felonies for their alleged roles in firearm thefts last December.

Steven Charles Corkery, Jr., 27, is accused of burglarizing a home in the 4400 block of East 16th on Dec. 6, then pawning stolen property, including two firearms.

Investigators believe Corkery and his brother, Thomas J. Corkery, 29, burglarized the home and were driven from the scene by Lucky Joe Guzman, 27.

Steven Corkery, who has felony convictions for theft and malicious mischief that prohibit him from possessing firearms, then pawned a stolen shotgun and bow, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Steven Corkery also is accused of pawning a .357 Magnum revolver that had been stolen from a home n the 13500 block of North Muzzy Road on Nov. 23.

He appeared in Superior Court Friday on charges of residential burglary, possession of a stolen firearm, second-degree theft, two counts of theft of a firearm and two counts of first-degree trafficking in stolen property.

Guzman and Thomas Corkery, who also has a felony conviction for theft, are charged with second-degree theft, residential burglary and two counts of a theft of a firearm.
