Shoeless Car Thieves Found Shivering in Moses Lake Van
No shirt, no shoes, no alibi. A man and woman found in back of cold van barefoot, while the man was also wearing no shirt. They were suspects in a car theft (owner left it running to warm up) and took off running.
Police believe they tried to ditch their shoes to avoid being tracked. The man said he took his shirt off because drug withdrawals were giving him hot flashes. The woman was charged with second degree taking a vehicle without permission. The man aged 18, was charged with "theft of a motor vehicle and attempting to elude." Both are from Moses Lake.
