Suspect Arrested Less Than 4 Hours After Being Released from Jail 

On May 11, 2021, at approximately 1:45 am., Spokane Valley Deputies arrested 18-year-old Noah T. Bakken after witnessing him attempting to enter vehicles at a car lot on E. Sprague.  


Bakken was just released from jail on May 10, 2021, at approximately 10 pm. stemming from an arrest on May 3, 2021.   At that time, he was held on an Assault 4th (DV) charge, but released on his own recognizance for his other charges consisting of Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle, Resisting Arrest, Obstructing, Refusing to Cooperate/Give Information, and No Valid Operator’s License.  The car he was driving when he was stopped was stolen from the same auto dealership on E. Sprague, where he was arrested on May 11th.  


On May 3, 2021, at approximately 4:35 am., Deputy Horton observed a Ford Focus driving south on Division near Cascade Way.  She noted the car was traveling about 15 mph under the posted speed limit with its hazard lights activated and no visible license plates displayed.   


Deputy Horton stopped the vehicle, and the driver, later identified as18-year-old Noah T. Bakken, exited the car and began walking back toward her patrol car.  Telling Bakken to sit back down inside the vehicle, Deputy Horton noticed a female, later identified as 19-year-old Kailey J. Calissendorff, sit up in the backseat.  


When asked, Bakken said he didn’t have an ID and didn’t need to provide Deputy Horton with his name.  Deputy Horton explained as a driver, Bakken was required by state law to identify himself, but Bakken looked away and didn’t answer.  


She had Bakken exit the vehicle and placed him in handcuffs while waiting for another patrol unit to arrive and assist.  She again asked Bakken to identify himself, and he refused.   She informed Bakken he was under arrest, but instead of remaining calm, Bakken began yelling and swearing, stating he wasn’t under arrest and wasn’t going to jail.  Bakken finally identified himself before deciding to walk away while still in handcuffs from Deputy Horton and Deputy Miller, who had arrived at the scene.  They grabbed onto Bakken’s arms and told him to sit back down but he refused.  With his continued erratic and uncooperative demeanor, he was placed on the ground to maintain control and then placed in the back of a patrol car, where he continued to be uncooperative. 


After Bakken was secured, Deputy Miller and Deputy Ball contacted Calissendorff.  She handed them several sets of car keys, saying she believed the keys and the car Bakken was driving were possibly stolen.  


At one point, Calissendorff began to walk away from the Deputies.  Deputy Ball told her to stop, or she would be placed in handcuffs.  Calissendorff turned around and charged toward Deputy Ball.   With Deputy Horton assisting, Deputy Ball attempted to place handcuffs on Calissendorff.  Calissendorff began to struggle and resist, striking Deputy Horton in the nose with her elbow.  Calissendorff was taken to the ground, placed in handcuffs, and told she was being arrested for Assault 3rd Degree and obstructing.      


Bakken and Calissendorff were booked into the Spokane County Jail.  


Calissendorff remains in custody for the Assault 3rd Degree and Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle in addition to a previous Assault 4th Degree (DV) charge.  Her total bond amount has been set at $6,000.   


On May 10, 2021, at approximately 10 pm., Bakken was released from jail after serving time for an Assault 4th Degree (DV) charge and being released on his own recognizance for several felony and misdemeanor charges.  


On May 11, 2021, at approximately 1:45 am., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to CarHop of Spokane, located at 5033 E. Sprague, for an alarm.  When Deputy Cinkovich arrived, he observed an eastside door of the business ajar with a dumpster pushed against it and a red sedan backed into the dumpster.


Continuing to watch, Deputy Cinkovich noticed a male walking around the back and sides of the lot.  The male, later identified as18-year-old Noah T. Bakken from court paperwork found in his pocket after his arrest, approached one of the vehicles belonging to the business and appeared to be attempting to open the door.  


After getting a good look at Bakken, Deputy Cinkovich identified himself and told Bakken to show his hands, but Bakken turned and ran away, ignoring commands to stop.  Not knowing if additional suspects were inside the business or hiding between the parked cars, Deputy Cinkovich held his position and provided the fleeing suspect’s description via his radio as additional patrol units responded and set up a perimeter.  


With the help of arriving Deputies, the business was cleared, and no additional suspects were located.   


Moments later, Deputy E. Jones advised he could see a male (Bakken) walking away from Walmart toward Custer.  He attempted to contacted Bakken and detained him, but Bakken ran.   After running approximately 100 yards, Bakken slowed and surrendered.  


Deputy Cinkovich confirmed Bakken was the male he observed at the business.  After further investigation, Deputies developed probable cause to charge Bakken with Burglary 2nd Degree, Malicious Mischief 2nd Degree, four counts of Theft of a Motor Vehicle (Attempted), and two counts of Obstructing.


Bakken was transported back to jail, where he was booked again for these new charges.
