Print Article

COEUR d'ALENE - Coeur d'Alene police said two more individuals wanted in connection with multiple burglaries in North Idaho and Spokane during the past several months are in custody.

Fugitive Jesse A. Williamson, 27, of Post Falls, turned himself in to authorities on Monday.

Susan N. Burke, aka Susan Church, 50, of Spokane, was found in Spokane Wednesday and arrested.

Williamson and Burke were wanted for burglary and grand theft.

With Williamson and Burke arrested, police have all eight suspects wanted for the home-invasion burglaries in custody.

The North Idaho Violent Crimes Task Force was actively searching for Williamson and Burke.

Fugitive Joseph A. Lynch, 29, of Coeur d'Alene, was arrested in Spokane on Monday without incident after a coordinated effort between the task force and Spokane Police Department.

Lynch was located at the Days Inn Motel on Third Avenue around midnight. He surrendered to authorities without incident.

Already in custody were Kathleen E. Kelly, 29, of Coeur d'Alene; Emily A. Lynch, 28, of Coeur d'Alene; Heather D. Yao, aka Heather Perry, 31, of Post Falls; Adam C. Ramirez III, 29, of Post Falls; and Kasie D. Gordon, 25, of Post Falls.

The burglaries occurred in Coeur d'Alene, Post Falls, Rathdrum, Hayden, Sandpoint and Spokane.

The Coeur d'Alene Police Department worked with area agencies to investigate the series of burglaries. These burglaries had a similar pattern of taking place in the daytime hours with suspects brazenly kicking open doors to residences.

Police received information from area citizens of suspicious individuals knocking on their doors.

On Nov. 9, a resident reported he was home alone on the 1000 block of west Fallview Drive at 2:15 p.m.

The reporting party said two suspects, a male and a female, knocked and rang the doorbell multiple times.

He decided not to answer the door.

The male suspect pulled some keys out of his pocket and tried to open the front door.

The victim heard this and locked the dead bolt to the door.

The male suspect looked through the half-moon shaped window on top of the front door and saw the victim. Both suspects then fled the scene, police said.
