Brothers Arrested For Multiple Felonies

Posted 8/27/2013 11:28 AM by CKCHAMBERLIN

Today, August 27th, 2013, Spokane Valley Property Crimes Detectives and Post Falls Detectives served a search warrant at a residence near the 6100 block of E. 15th Ave. in Spokane Valley. This was the result of a three-month long investigation that dealt with stores in Spokane Valley, Post Falls, Spokane City and Airway Heights.

Several stores in the area, such as Wal-Mart, Kohl's and Fred Meyer, fell victim to the brothers crime spree. Today, 24-year-old Vitaliy Kozubenko, 18-year-old Dmitriy, 25-year-old Denis and their juvenile brother were taken into custody for multiple felony charges that include trafficking in stolen property, theft with intent to resell, burglary and possession of a controlled substance. All four brothers were taken into custody this morning at their residence.

Through the investigation of fifteen separate cases, detectives learned the brothers would steal such items as high end vacuum cleaners, carpet cleaners, sewing machines and air conditioning units, then resell them on Craigslist. The victim businesses were not only in Spokane County but Post Falls as well. All four brothers were booked into the Spokane County Jail and Juvenile Detention for the listed charges this morning. The investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are expected.
