Officials want to bar unmarked cruisers in Wash.

The bill, which stemmed from the death of a pastor, seeks a limit on use

SPOKANE, Wash. -- Two lawmakers from Spokane Valley want to bar law enforcement officers from parking unmarked police cars on private property for routine matters.

The legislation, sponsored by Republican state Reps. Matt Shea and Larry Crouse, seeks to clarify what they called a "vague" state law that allows local law enforcement to use unmarked cars for administrative tasks. They both said in a news release that the clarification would avoid future confrontations like the one that led to the fatal police shooting of 74-year-old Wayne Scott Creach last summer.
