In brief: Woman charged in vehicle prowling

From Staff And Wire Reports

A 21-year-old woman faces 21 counts stemming from theft-related activity after a investigation into vehicle prowling in north Spokane, according to police.

Spokane police received a report of vehicle prowling Oct. 21 in the 1600 block of East Wellesley Avenue. A purse containing debit and credit cards was taken, a police news release said.

Police believe the cards were then used by Jorden L. Mayo to make unauthorized purchases.

Shortly before 10 p.m. Monday, an officer executed a search warrant on Mayo’s home and recovered the credit cards along with other property believed to be stolen, the release said.

Investigators believe there may be up to 20 additional theft victims and are contacting people identified through the investigation to determine if their property was stolen.

Mayo was booked into the Spokane County Jail on 13 counts of identity theft, four counts of possession of stolen property and four counts of money laundering.

Two students jailed over school threats

TACOMA – Two Tacoma high school students have been arrested on accusations they made threats against their school.

The 16-year-olds pleaded not guilty Tuesday in juvenile court to a charge of felony harassment, the News Tribune reported. The Franklin Pierce High School students were detained until their next court appearance Tuesday.

The first threat was reported Monday. Court papers say students heard a boy speaking to another student Monday, threatening to harm or kill the school principal and two other administrators. At first, the students thought the threats were a joke, but they say the boy began pounding on a classroom table. Court documents say the boy later told police he was only joking.

On Monday evening, another boy allegedly tweeted that he would be “shooting up the school tomorrow.” Several students told their parents, who then contacted police. That boy also said later that he was just joking.

Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist said his office takes such threats seriously.

Court-martial to be at Lewis-McChord

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – A Fort Wainwright soldier charged with premeditated murder in the death of his 3-year-old son will be court-martialed in Washington state.

The Army said Tuesday that the court-martial for Sgt. Nathaniel Ulroan, 24, will begin Monday at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

Ulroan’s son died April 3 at his home on Fort Wainwright in Fairbanks.

Ulroan, originally from Chevak, Alaska, also is charged with kidnapping, rape, assault counts and communicating a threat.

Ulroan served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
