Today July 28, just before 2:20 PM, the Spokane Police Anti-Crime Team (PACT) attempted to make a traffic stop on a suspicious vehicle near the area of N Post St. / W Maxwell St. Two suspects fled from the car with one running north, and the other running south. PACT Officers followed the suspects in foot pursuit. Additional Patrol units responded to the area to assist in locating the suspects. One suspect, later identified as 21 year old Dominick M. Holmes, ran into the back door of a residence in the 1500 block of N Post St. Holmes did not live at the residence, and had no standing there. As he jumped a backyard fence to get into the residence, Holmes dropped a loaded firearm onto the ground. The firearm was later discovered to have been stolen in a Vehicle Prowling. The occupants of the residence fled the house, and the house was surrounded by SPD Officers. Holmes eventually surrendered when he came outside, and was taken into custody without incident. The second suspect, later identified 23 year old Raynee D. Moore, was contained inside the southern perimeter the responding Officers had set up. Moore was taken into custody as he attempted to escape from the perimeter.
Moore was arrested for his outstanding US Marshals Warrant, and Holmes was arrested for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm 1st Degree, Theft of a Firearm, and Residential Burglary. Holmes and Moore are both convicted felons. They were booked into the Spokane County Jail for their charges.
This is another example of the Spokane Police PACT team’s tireless work of getting the highest risk criminals off the streets, and recovering a stolen firearm in the process.
