Moscow-Pullman Daily News

Two Washington residents were arrested in Latah County on Friday after they allegedly led the county sheriff on a brief vehicle pursuit as they attempted to flee the scene of a burglary.

According to Latah County Sheriff Lt. Brannon Jordan, a woman reported at about 5 p.m. that a man and woman were stealing gas cans from her property on the 1200 block of Harden Road near Moscow.

Jordan said Sheriff Richie Skiles was the first to arrive at the property. He found two suspects – Brazen Penfield, 27, of Soap Lake, Wash., and Aleasha Brown, 25, of Ephrata, Wash. – in a vehicle. When Skiles attempted to contact them, they allegedly refused to stop. He pursued them to near Morton Street in Moscow.

Penfield was arrested on suspicion of two felony counts of burglary and possession of heroin, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, as well as driving without permission and eluding an officer. Brown was arrested on suspicion of being in possession of heroin, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
