[ARCHIVED] Freeman High School Parent’s Vehicle Prowled while Attempting to Ensure Children were Safe


Freeman High School Parent’s Vehicle Prowled while Attempting to Ensure Children were Safe  


The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help identifying suspect(s) who prowled a Freeman High School parent’s vehicle parked on Highway 27 while they were trying to contact their children and make sure they were safe.  These suspects have now racked up over $36,000 dollars in fraudulent activity on the victim’s accounts. 


On September 13, 2017, while parents parked on Hwy. 27 in Rockford and ran, some more than a mile, toward the Freeman Schools to locate their children, someone else was taking advantage of the tragic circumstances.

Sometime between 10:30 a.m. and noon, the suspect(s) entered a vehicle parked along Hwy. 27 and stole a purse hastily left behind by a worried parent. Since the purse was stolen, the suspect(s) have fraudulently cashed checks and used stolen credit cards of the victim’s exceeding $36,000.

Detective Dean Meyer is asking for your assistance in identifying the suspect in these photos. Property crimes themselves are typically hard for victims to deal with, especially when identity theft and fraud are involved, but the fact these criminals took advantage of such a tragic situation is particularly heinous.

Anyone with information regarding this theft or can help identify these suspect(s), please call Detective Dean Meyer at 509-477-3159 reference #10123636.
