On Tuesday morning, November 5th, 2013, at 10:30 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to Safeway at 1441 N. Argonne on a robbery call. A Loss Prevention Officer told deputies he observed a male subject, later identified as 18-year-old Jordan Thomas, place a bottle of Tequila in his pants. When he confronted Thomas, Thomas struck the Loss Prevention Officer on the head with the bottle and ran north from the store.

Several deputies set up containment and Deputy Bob Bond and his K9 partner Jet searched for Thomas. Within minutes of starting the track, Jet located Thomas inside a waiting room of a business complex located at 8817 E. Mission. Deputy Bond observed Thomas sitting inside waiting area and he matched the suspect’s description. When Deputy Bond asked the assistant if she knew who Thomas was, she said she did not. She said Thomas had just walked in and was asking people for a ride. Thomas was positively identified by the Loss Prevention Officer.

• Thomas was booked into jail on the felony charge of Robbery as well as an unrelated felony warrant.
