Third person arrested in Walmart slaying

Lakewood police today made another arrest in connection with last year’s fatal shooting of a Loomis armored car guard inside Walmart.

Officers arrested 26-year-old Natalie Brechbiel at her Tacoma home on suspicion of rendering criminal assistance to the defendants.

Shortly after guard Kurt Husted was shot in the head while walking money bags to his waiting vehicle on June 2, 2009, witnesses told police they saw three men arrive at Brechbiel’s home.

They then saw the men get into her car although they couldn’t see who was behind the wheel, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Police suspect Brechbiel gave Odies Walker, the getaway driver, a ride back to Walmart to pick up a second vehicle that the defendants drove to the store prior to the robbery.

The getaway car – a white Buick which was spotted on surveillance footage from Walmart – was found soon after the shooting parked at Brechbiel’s home, documents say.

This is the third arrest related to this case that Lakewood police have made in less than two days.

On Wednesday, Arnoldo and Jennifer Trevino were taken into custody on suspicion of rendering criminal assistance.

Lakewood police Lt. Chris Lawler said there are no other planned arrests in the case.

    For the most part we knew who the g*ys were in our unit..they would look over at your junk when you were at the urinal. But if you just ignored them..they wouldnt bother you ever again.

    The ones that should have the biggest say in this is the front line combat troops, and they are in the majority against it.
