Police arrested a man and sent him to jail twice Tuesday.
Gary A. Flett, 25, was arrested after trespassing at the House Of Charity at 7:45 a.m., according to a news release from Spokane Police Department. He was booked into Spokane County Jail and released about an hour later.
Within 1 1/2 hours of being released, Flett stole an iPad from a backpack, according to the news release. The victim tracked down Flett with the iPad’s tracking software and alerted police.
Officers arrested Flett, who they said was in possession of the stolen iPad and booked him into Spokane County Jail again at 12:31 p.m. Tuesday.
He is being charged with possession of stolen property.
Flett appeared in court Wednesday, and Spokane County Commissioner John Stine set his bond at $3,000.
