Spokane Police Officers responded to a suspicious vehicle call in north Spokane last week. When they arrived they found a female who had been passed out in the vehicle. Officers looked inside and could see guns on the back seat. The female inside, 41 year old Kathryn Bouchey was a convicted felon and could not have firearms. Officers seized the car and did a search warrant, locating several stolen items and we need the public’s help on locating the owner of one of those items.
On August 8th Officers responded to 2600 N Market for a suspicious vehicle. The caller stated that a vehicle was parked at the location and a female was inside sleeping. Officers made contact with Bouchey and learned she was a felon and could not be in possession of firearms. Officers observed a long riffle firearm on the back seat, under a blanket. Bouchey was booked into jail and the car was seized for a search warrant.
Days later Officers served a search warrant on the vehicle. Inside they located 3 long guns, one of them being a high powered riffle that was stolen. Officers are trying to track down the owners of the other two guns and believe they are stolen as well. A various amount of drugs such as Heroin, Methamphetamine and pills were also located inside the vehicle. As is most of the time with drug possession also involves stolen property. Officers located tools and other items in the vehicle they believe to be stolen.
One of the items in the vehicle does not have a serial number and we are having trouble finding the owner. It is a glass jar that is about half a gallon in size. The jar itself does not have much value but it appears to have sentimental value. The jar has personal messages such as “Dream Jar”, “Honey Moon” and possibly a baby’s name on it. Some of the photo’s are attached.
If this jar belongs to you we would like to return it into your possession. Please call crime check at 456-2233. Reference report number 2020-20136829 and have it forwarded to Officer Dave Eckersley.
