POST FALLS — A 41-year-old Spokane man was arrested Saturday night after leading police on a high-speed chase on eastbound Interstate-90 from the state line to Coeur d'Alene.

Vance Robert Campbell was arrested and booked into Kootenai County Jail for felony eluding, DUI and a suspended driver's license.

Post Falls Police joined the pursuit at about 6 p.m. after it was reported in Spokane County. Campbell, driving a Mitsubishi Eclipse, avoided two sets of spike strips. The chase reached 100 mph on I-90 before Campbell took the 15th Street exit in Coeur d'Alene.

The chase went southbound on 15th Street to Coeur d'Alene Avenue and the area of 23rd. It ended in the parking lot of Port of Hope, where Campbell was arrested without incident.

Post Falls police Lt. Greg McLean said it's unclear what triggered the pursuit.

Business burglary suspect arrested

POST FALLS — A 37-year-old Post Falls man was arrested Sunday morning after being caught allegedly trying to steal a business van.

Richard Lee Trower was booked into Kootenai County Jail on charges of burglary, attempted grand theft and malicious injury to property at Service Masters on Boulder Court in Post Falls.

Police responded to the business at about 3 a.m. after an overhead door alarm was activated.

Officers heard banging noises and saw several windows of vehicles had been broken.

"When they approached the last van in a line of vehicles, they saw the male inside," Post Falls police Lt. Greg McLean said.

Trower allegedly took a garage door opener from a van and when the button was pushed, it activated the alarm, McLean said.
