On 05-24-18, shortly after 5PM, SPD patrol officers met with a theft victim who had multiple items stolen. SPD Officers and the victims were able to determine the iPad was located at a residence in the 2300 block of E 5th Ave.
Officers attempted to contact the residence, but received no cooperation. A search warrant for the abode was applied for and granted. Multiple individuals were detained, and once inside officers discovered evidence of prolific drug activity. Additionally a ‘sawed-off,’ short barreled rifle was found in the house.
After lying numerous times about his name, 23-year-old Travis Adams was arrested for making false statements, and his outstanding felony Department of Correction warrant. 22-year-old Danielle Brady was arrested for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, and possession of stolen property. 30-year-old Tyler Windham was arrested for possession of an unlawful firearm, and his outstanding Department of Corrections warrant. Additional charges are possible.
The iPad was returned to the victims.
The victims of misdemeanor property crimes can feel it is difficult for culprits to be held accountable, and their property returned. While it is true that not all property crime is solved, this is one example of a relatively low-level violation leading to multiple felony arrests, and those arrests making the neighborhood safer. If you are the victim of property crime, no matter how minor, please report it to Crime Check at 509-456-2233, it could be your case which leads to the next big arrest!
