Liberty Lake Police Blotter: Man gives false name tied to arrest warrants

A man tried giving a false name to a Liberty Lake police officer recently, but the name he gave was attached to three arrest warrants. As the man was being booked at the Spokane County Jail, he confessed his true identity. However, he had a warrant out for his arrest as well so he was still booked.

Methamphetamine was reportedly found on the man, so he was charged with possession of a controlled substance and making a false statement to police in addition to being jailed on his warrant.

Police stumbled across the man while investigating reports of an argument in the 1600 block of North Aladdin Road on July 16.

Other calls from July 13-20

July 13: A business in the 1300 block of North Liberty Lake Road reported that a drunken man was trying to buy alcohol. An employee told police that the man walked into a wall as he was trying to leave the business.

July 14: A caller reported that a woman had been sitting in a parked car in the 19000 block of East Cataldo Avenue for several hours. The woman told police she was allergic to the sun and was just waiting for her boyfriend. She was told to leave private property.

July 16: A woman called police to report finding a checkbook and a debit card in a bag of items that she had purchased at a garage sale.

July 18: Police are investigating a report from an employee in the 23000 block of East Appleway Avenue that his back was injured when a co-worker pushed his chair while he was sitting in it. He has indicated that he wants to press charges.

Arrests: Police made three arrests for driving with a suspended license, two for warrants, one for driving under the influence and one for racing.

Citations: Officers handed out three citations for failure to show proof of liability insurance and three for speeding. Additional citations were given for failure to transfer ownership, expired vehicle registration, failure to install required ignition interlock device, hit and run unattended vehicle, failure to yield to pedestrian in a crosswalk and use of a cellphone.
