A Spokane man was arrested after allegedly stealing multiple wallets from a Coeur d’Alene gym.

21-year-old, Jaymes R. Kirby, is charged with two counts of grand theft of a financial instrument, one count of destruction of evidence, and two counts of petit theft.


Kirby allegedly pried open a locker at the gym around 3:45 am Saturday and stole two patrons’ belongings.
