Gift card theft investigation leads to arrest of three Flint teenagers

Flint, Michigan – Three 18-year-olds from Flint were imprisoned over the weekend after they allegedly gave false names during a police inquiry into a $400 gift card theft in Ligonier Borough.

The individuals, Keenen E. Reese II, Rashad A. Shahid, and Malik S. Spillers, are currently in Westmoreland County Prison facing charges of falsely identifying to the police.

On Saturday evening at 7:30, Ligonier Valley police alerted other departments to watch for a black Nissan Rogue with Maryland license plates, as per court documents. The SUV, transporting a woman and three men, was linked to the theft at a GetGo store on Route 30 earlier that day, as reported by the police.

North Huntingdon police discovered that the SUV had recently traveled on Route 30 in their area, using license plate readers. They located the vehicle at a gas station in Irwin along the same route.

Suspects gave fake identities to police

The three men in the SUV reportedly gave false names and birthdates to the police. Their real identities were later confirmed using fingerprint analysis. The driver of the vehicle hasn’t been charged.

Shahid faces additional charges of retail theft and possession of stolen property. Shahid and Spillers were denied bail due to the risk of them fleeing, while Reese’s bail was set at $10,000, as per court documents.
