Seven-Time Convicted Felon Arrested Attempting To Return Stolen Items

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - A Seven-time convicted felon and repeat offender arrested for 2nd Degree Trafficking of Stolen Property after an alert cashier noticed he was trying to return clothes stolen in a vehicle prowling.  Dean A. Albrecht, 21, was booked for the felony charge Tuesday evening.

Spokane police responded to what was originally a report of a suspicious person at the Burlington Coat Factory in the 5800 block of north Division on Tuesday just before 7:00 pm. Once on-scene at the location, employees told officers that they had been alerted to a vehicle prowling that happened in their parking lot the day before.

The vehicle prowling victims had $2,000 worth of merchandise they had just purchased stolen out of their car on Monday. The victims reported the crime to Crime Check and alerted Burlington Coat Factory staff who were able to locate the store’s copy of the receipt to track if any of the merchandise was returned.

Albrecht entered the store and attempted to return one of the suits stolen in the vehicle prowling while another suspect went to a second register and tried to return more of the merchandise. Staff had posted information on the stolen goods at each of the registers, so employees called Crime Check when they recognized the items.

Officers were able to contact the vehicle prowling victim so they could get some of their belongings returned, but many of the items were still missing.

Just a reminder as you enjoy shopping and other great activities in Spokane, please keep valuables locked up and out of sight. If you are a victim, call Crime Check and report what happened. In this case, we were able to make an arrest and get some of the victims’ property returned to them because they made a report and followed up with the store.

Anyone with information on the crime is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
