A suspicious vehicle stop by a Spokane police officer netted three rifles, a shotgun and a jewelry box belonging to a burglary victim’s deceased wife.
Police arrested 26-year-old Joshua D. Hall at about 4 a.m. Monday morning in the area of Nebraska Avenue and Perry Street after an officer noticed a black Dodge Dakota matching the description of a previously reported stolen vehicle, police said in a news release.
Officer Chris LeQuire noticed a shotgun in the back seat, and after searching Hall, found a handgun on his person. LeQuire found three more rifles in the truck, all of which were reported stolen two days prior.
The news release says the rifles and shotgun were taken along with the jewelery box.
Hall is facing 10 counts of felony possession of a stolen firearm.
