Kudos to two Spokane Transit Authority security guards who just received a letter of commendation from Spokane Police Chief Ann Kirkpatrick.

In February, Guards Chris Stein and Chris Hamilton apprehended a suspect believed to have been involved in an armed robbery the day before. When Stein and Hamilton approached the suspect on STA Plaza property, he made movements toward his waist that led them to believe he may be armed. The man wouldn’t stop when commanded to do so, and knowing the danger an armed man could pose to the public, Stein and Hamilton wrestled him to the ground. A search turned up a loaded stolen firearm on the suspect that could have been used in future crimes.

Thanks officers, it’s good to know you’re keeping an eye on things at the Plaza!
