Deputies make prevention priority

Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputies Travis Pendell and Greg Snyder were sitting in their tiny Spokane Valley Mall office talking about their work in crime prevention Tuesday afternoon when they suddenly got up and rushed out of the room. A loss prevention officer from a store had run up, pointed to a group of three young women walking out the mall doors and accused one of them of stealing a jacket. Pendell and Snyder stopped the women and searched their oversized purses and shopping bag, finding the jacket. “It was in the bag,” Snyder said. The woman accused of taking the jacket was taken to the mall security office until she could be taken to jail. Snyder said the store she allegedly stole from has a hands-off policy for thieves, meaning employees can’t detain them.
