Coulee City man arrested on stolen property charges


COULEE CITY — Lincoln and Grant County law enforcement officers teamed up Wednesday morning to arrest a Coulee City man suspected of having two stolen vehicles.

Bernard A. Brill, 55, is lodged in the Grant County jail on suspicion of two counts of possession of a stolen motor vehicle and two counts of possession of stolen property.

The path to this arrest began when Lincoln County sheriff’s deputies learned Brill may have been involved in recent theft-related crimes near Wilbur. Lincoln County deputies contacted Grant County for assistance.

Grant and Lincoln county deputies, the Moses Lake Regional Tactical Response Team, and detectives from the Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team served a search warrant early Wednesday morning at Brill’s home in the 100 block of North First Street in Coulee City. Investigators recovered two stolen vehicles.

“We’re always happy to team up with Lincoln County Sheriff Wade Magers and his deputies,” said Grant County Sheriff Tom Jones. “It’s not unusual for our agencies to have to deal with some of the same criminals, and this arrest benefits all residents of Grant and Lincoln counties.”

The investigation is ongoing.
