Two suspects charged in Great Falls car break-in crime spree

Two suspects have been arrested in connection with a recent car break-in “crime spree” that victimized dozens of local residents and involved at least 17 recent vehicle burglaries.

Jorri Ann Rusinski, 37, and Jamie Lee Eisch, 31, now face a combined total of 11 felony offenses, including multiple counts of felony theft and criminal possession of dangerous drugs.

According to court documents, the arrests of Rusinski and Eisch began on Nov. 20, when Great Falls police officers executed a warrant to search a vehicle belonging to Rusinski. During that search, officers recovered numerous stolen items estimated to have a sum value of around $12,000. 

In a subsequent investigation, police determined that Rusinski has pawned at least 63 items at nine different pawn stores in the preceding six months.

Teens charged in crime spree – Times

THOMASVILLE — Five teens have been charged in a three-month crime spree investigated by Thomasville police.

Suspects range in age from 13 to 16, said Capt. Maurice Homes, Thomasville Police Department Criminal Investigations Division commander.

Detectives have been gathering intelligence since August in nighttime commercial burglaries, stolen vehicles and entering autos in the U.S. 19 South area. In one incident, golf carts were stolen from a 19 South business and abandoned off Cassidy Road on the opposite side of the city.

“We cleared up several (cases), but we have some loose ends,” Holmes said.

Five handguns stolen from a business have not been recovered, but officers did recover a stolen motorcycle and a stolen motor scooter. 

“Both were returned to the owners,” the commander said.

The young suspects are charged with burglary and theft by taking, among other offenses.

Three teens are being held at the Loftiss Youth Detention Center, and two were released to their parents.

North Vancouver man charged following Fraser Canyon crime spree

A North Vancouver man is facing multiple charges after an alleged crime spree that could have come from Grand Theft Auto Monday.

Upper Fraser Valley RCMP were called to a motel in Boston Bar after a couple reported a man robbed them and stole their vehicle. Investigators got a description of the stolen vehicle and put the word out to all detachments that patrol the Trans-Canada Highway.

An hour later, they received another dispatch, this time alerting them to an incident in Lytton, where two men caught someone in the act of trying to steal their truck. In his escape, the suspect hit one of the men with the stolen auto, police say, resulting in non-life threatening injuries.

After abandoning the vehicle, the suspect then flagged down the driver of a passing semi-truck who picked him up and promptly handed him over to a Lytton RCMP detachment member.
