Loran C. Bacon, 22, Spokane, was formally charged Aug. 22 with possession of a stolen vehicle, driving with a suspended or revoked license and two counts of theft. Bacon was arrested Aug. 18 on Highway 195 north of Colfax by Colfax Officer Perry Tate, who saw him driving through Colfax after being informed of a pending car theft investigation in Pullman.

Pullman Police were called to Safeway on Bishop Blvd. at 7:53 a.m. Aug 18 when a man reported the 1995 Buick Regal he had left parked in the store's lot had been stolen while he was in the store. The owner said he had left his cell phone and his work phone along with a wallet in the car while he was in the store.

Tate later saw a Buick matching the description of the missing car going through Colfax and followed it out of town and made the stop when a backup officer was on the scene.

Bond for Bacon's pre-trial release was set at $25,000.
