K9 Khan Doubles on Captures this Weekend

# 1) Fleeing Burglary Suspect Captured by K9 Khan After Lengthy Search

K9 Khan and Deputy Kullman located a burglary suspect who fled on foot after he entered a barn and assaulted the owner when he was confronted. Several agencies assisted during the search for the suspect.

On the afternoon of April 20, 2018, several Spokane County Deputies and Air 1, assisted by members of the Washington State Patrol, Stevens County Sheriff’s Office, Chewelah Police Department and other agencies, responded to a reported burglary call in the 40800 block of N. Short Road in North Spokane County. A homeowner found the suspect, later identified as 28-year-old Casey L. Brown, hiding in his barn. When the homeowner confronted Brown, Brown struck him and fled on foot.

Chewelah Officer Matt Miller and his K9 partner Rebel and Deputy Tyler Kullman and K9 Khan responded to the scene in addition to several deputies and additional law enforcement agencies. Air 1 was also called out to assist due to the large rural area.

When Brown hadn’t been located nearly three hours later, Deputy Kullman and K9 Khan began working back toward their patrol vehicle when K9 Khan suddenly put his nose to the ground and started pulling on his lead. Approximately 100 yards later, K9 Khan behavior changed again, leading Deputy Kullman to believe Brown was near. As Deputy Kullman scanned ahead, he observed Brown running through the woods. Deputy Kullman immediately gave a K9 warning, advising K9 Khan would be used to capture Brown if he didn’t stop and surrender. Brown stopped and said, “I give up”, and laid on the ground. Brown was taken into custody without further incident.

Brown was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Burglary 1st Degree, Assault 4th Degree, Resisting Arrest and Obstructing Law Enforcement.

The homeowner received minor injuries as a result of Brown’s assault.
# 2) Wanted Suspect Known to Flee, Fails to Heed K9 Warning

A wanted suspect, known to jump from a second story balcony and flee, did so again but this time Deputy Kullman and K9 Khan were positioned at the back of the apartments to stop any escape attempt.

On April 21, 2018, at approximately 11:30 p.m., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to an apartment complex located in the 700 block of N. Argonne regarding a loud argument.

Deputy Getchell, who had responded to the very same apartment earlier in his shift for a similar call, advised one of the persons involved was possibly 35-year-old Micaiah J. Holland. Holland had a felony warrant for his arrest, had jumped from the second story balcony and fled on foot when deputies responded earlier.

Hearing this, Deputy Kullman and K9 Khan took a position at the in the back of the apartments.

A male and female could be heard inside the apartment arguing. Deputy Getchell knocked on the door, which was answered by the involved female. As Deputy Getchell entered the apartment, Holland looked at him and immediately turned and ran toward the slider door. Deputy Getchell ordered Holland to stop and warned a K9 was positioned behind the apartments to stop any escape, but Holland ignored it all and jumped from the balcony to the ground.

After Holland hit the ground, Deputy Kullman used his flashlight to light Holland and the area up. Deputy Kullman told Holland to stop and warned of K9 Khan. Holland looked right at the Deputy and K9 but ignored the commands and fled on foot as Deputy Kullman again announced himself, ordering Holland to stop.

Knowing Holland had a felony warrant for his arrest, coupled with his attempt to flee and failure to follow commands, Deputy Kullman sent K9 Khan who rapidly closed the distance, catching Holland as he tried to scale a fence.

Once on the ground, K9 Khan was removed but Holland, on his knees, remained defiant and would not follow commands to lay on the ground. Additional Deputies arrived to assist and Holland was taken into custody. He was provided medical treatment before being transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for his felony warrant and a new charge or Obstructing.

Suspicious Behavior Advisory

The Spokane Valley Police Department would like parents to be aware of an incident reported earlier this week where a young female student observed a male while she walked to and from school on the same day last week. The male’s suspicious behavior was concerning to the student but his intentions are not known. Attempts to locate and identify this subject have not been successful and no similar incidents are known to have been reported.

This advisory is to inform parents in the area of this information and to request anyone who has information regarding similar incidents or can help identify this male to call Crime Check at 509-456-2244, reference #10049317.

As the student walked to school in the area of Evergreen and 26th, the male drove up in an older, small white 4-door vehicle. The male asked if she had missed he bus since she appeared to be running and if she needed a ride. The student did a great job, declined the ride and continued her way to school.

Later in the afternoon as she walked home from school, she noticed the male walking behind her near Evergreen and 24th. The male did not say anything or attempt to contact her but after the morning’s incident, she got a “creepy feeling” seeing the male again. A couple blocks later, a neighbor pulled up and gave her a ride home.

The male was described as being in his 50’s or 60’s, approximately 5’11” with medium build and balding with gray hair on the sides. The male was wearing shorts with a windbreaker style jacket which were orange and back in color.

Although the male’s reported actions are not criminal, his intentions are not known and were alarming to the young student. Deputies/Detectives would like to identify this male and talk to him about this incident.

Anyone with information regarding this incident, has observed similar activity or can help identify this male is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233, reference #10049317.

Convicted Felon’s Suspicious Attempts to Avoid Contact Fail

A 17-time convicted felon’s suspicious attempts to avoid contact ended in his arrest and the recovery of a stolen firearm.

On April 18, 2018, at approximately 10:45 p.m., Spokane Valley Deputy Skye Ortiz observed a blue Ford Crown Victoria with what appeared to be a damaged windshield, pulling up to the gas pumps at HICO, located on the corner of Sprague and Mullan.

Planning to contact the driver for the violation, Deputy Ortiz drove around the block. He observed the driver, later identified as 34-year-old Ryan L. Cheers, exit the still running vehicle and enter the store. As Deputy Ortiz pulled closer to record the license plate, he observed Cheers walking east from the store. Cheers rounded the corner of the building and walked into the laundromat where he remained.

Cheers continued to stare at the patrol car and although lacking any laundry, remained in a laundromat while leaving his unattended vehicle running at the gas pumps. Deputy Ortiz left the immediate area to a position where he could continue to observe Cheers’ suspicious behavior.

Several minutes later, Cheers exited the laundromat, looked around in the direction of the parked patrol car and made a call on his cell phone. He remained in view as he sat down on an outside bench. At approximately 11:00 p.m., Cheers stood up and walked northbound on Willow, away from the location, leaving his still running and unattended vehicle.

Due to Cheers’ highly suspicious behavior, Deputy Ortiz pulled on Willow to contact Cheers and observed Cheers getting into a Ford Mustang. The Mustang, occupied by two people in addition to Cheers, drove south on Willow to Sprague where Deputy Ortiz conducted a traffic stop. Cheers was contacted, identified and removed from the vehicle to continue the investigation into his suspicious actions. Cheers began reaching in his pockets and was detained in handcuffs. During a frisk for weapons, Deputy Ortiz located an illegal switchblade style knife in Cheers’ back pocket and informed him he was under arrest for possession of a dangerous weapon.

Sergeant Simmons who had arrived to assist, checked the vehicle Cheers had abandon and observed a pistol in a black holster sitting on the driver’s seat.

Cheers, after being advised of his rights, initially denied even driving the vehicle but eventually said he borrowed it from a friend. He also admitted his fingerprints might be on the pistol because he pushed everything in the seat to the side when he barrowed the car but denied any actual knowledge of a firearm.

A check of Cheers’ criminal history revealed he is a 17-time convicted felon (possession of a controlled substance w/o prescription, burglary 2nd degree, possession of stolen property and theft 1st degree) and prohibited from possessing firearms.

The vehicle which contained additional possibly stolen property was seized, pending a search warrant. The pistol, a Glock G43 9mm, was later determined to have been reported stolen during a vehicle prowl in March of this year.

Cheers was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Possession of a Stolen Firearm, Possession of a Dangerous Weapon and Driving While Suspended 3rd Degree.

After his initial court appearance, his bond was set at $25,000.

Students, Social Media School Threats Will NOT be Tolerated

A Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputy arrested a 15-year-old student after he sent alarming and threatening videos via Snapchat referencing bombing a school. This is the second juvenile to be arrested for making social media threats like this in the past week. Parent are again asked to talk with their school aged children about social media and what’s appropriate.

On April 17, 2018, at approximately 9:30 p.m., Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputy Alexx Bullion contacted Liberty School District Superintendent Kyle Rydell regarding a school threat posted on Snapchat. Superintendent Rydell explained he was contacted by the parent of a student who received some alarming videos from another student via social media. The social media threats did not mention a specific school or a date/time.

The videos were of a 15-year-old student making a comment regarding sexual assault, as well as statements where he said a person wouldn’t “technically” be shooting up a school if they blew it up. He also appeared to act out both sides of a conversation/interview where he is being questioned about why he’s being contacted. He answers himself by saying, “No, not exactly.” to which he replies, “You shot up a school.” He then replies, “No, technically I didn’t hit the school” and refers to shooting students.

Deputy Bullion contacted the suspect and his mother. During the interview, the suspect said he knew why Deputy Bullion was at his home and admitted he made the videos but would not repeat what he said on the videos. When asked why he made the statements on the videos he replied, “Cause I thought it was funny.” He explained he had no actual plan to blow up a school, he only meant it to be humorous.

The suspect was arrested and booked into the Spokane County Juvenile Detention Facility where he was charged with Threats to Bomb or Injure Property, a felony.

We thank the concerned parent/student and Superintendent Rydell for immediately reporting these threats, allowing them to be quickly addressed. The safety of our children/students/staff and our community is a priority for all of us. It is truly heartbreaking to see some youngsters still believe it is funny or somehow appropriate to make threats about harming or shooting students or bombing schools.

Parents, we urge you to take the time to talk to your school aged students. Don’t assume they know or wouldn’t do something like this, please make sure of it.

Sheriff Knezovich has been very clear, “Spokane County will have a zero-tolerance policy for making threats toward shooting up a school or classmates and if you make such threats, we will arrest you.”

Washington RCW 9.61.160: Threats to bomb or injure property—Penalty.

(1) It shall be unlawful for any person to threaten to bomb or otherwise injure any public or private school building, any place of worship or public assembly, any governmental property, or any other building, common carrier, or structure, or any place used for human occupancy; or to communicate or repeat any information concerning such a threatened bombing or injury, knowing such information to be false and with intent to alarm the person or persons to whom the information is communicated or repeated.

(2) It shall not be a defense to any prosecution under this section that the threatened bombing or injury was a hoax.

(3) A violation of this section is a class B felony punishable according to chapter 9A.20 RCW.
