On May 31, 2019 Spokane Police stopped a reported stolen truck downtown. Several people were detained out of the vehicle. Officers located drugs, a gun, fake money and suspected stolen items inside. Two of the occupants were booked for various charges and the owner of the vehicle took custody of the vehicle.

On Friday evening a male called 911 stating that he was following his stolen vehicle south on Division, approaching downtown. Several patrol Officers were in the area and located the stolen truck. Officers pulled the truck over on Spokane Falls Blvd and detained three occupants.

Raymond Lindley (33 yrs old) was in the front passenger seat and Jameel Henriksen (34 yrs old) was in the back passenger seat. A female was driving the vehicle, but was not arrested. After the occupants were detained, Officers searched the vehicle. Inside Officers located two counterfeit $50 bills. A baggy with a substantial amount of Methamphetamine was located under a seat. Other baggies with Methamphetamine, Heroin and paraphernalia were located throughout. Officers also located a handgun that had been reported stolen out of Seattle two years prior.
