Criminal charges filed after attempts to steal a bait bike

Following multiple incidents of criminal activities in Spokane, reserve officers of the Spokane Police Department recently agreed to organize a sting in the affected area. This led to arrests and criminal charges filed against three people. Two of them already had warrants out for their arrest.

Authorities said the officers decided on a bike sting in an area where a spate of burglaries, thefts, assaults and drug deals had been reported in recent months. Soon after they set the bike up as bait, a man rode up, parked his own bicycle and took the more expensive-looking one. Officers promptly arrested him, and a police report indicates that the man admitted to stealing the bike with the intention to sell it.

After resetting the scene with the bait, officers noticed two females discussing the bike. Officers claim that a 25-year-old woman was the lookout while a 35-year-old woman allegedly tried to steal the bicycle. They were both arrested, and officers said arrest warrants for matters including theft were already in the system. The three people who were taken into custody now face felony charges of second-degree theft, and the 25-year-old woman was also found with methamphetamine in her possession.

Anyone who faces criminal charges in Spokane will remain innocent in the eyes of the law until the prosecution can prove that person's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Most people who find themselves in such situations seek the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney who can protect their rights and advocate for them throughout ensuing legal proceedings. The best possible outcome will be sought, whether it involves a plea deal or going to court.
