Man accused of providing false name to police

An Oak Harbor man is accused of attempting to steal car keys and giving police a false name to avoid a warrant, according to court documents.

Prosecutors charged Riley P. Thompson, 19, in Island County Superior Court March 28 with attempted robbery in the second degree and criminal impersonation in the first degree.

A Jack in the Box employee reported Thompson was hitting a customer on March 25. The victim told police Thompson and an unknown female were looking into the victim’s car in the parking lot. When Thompson entered the restaurant, the victim asked about the car and Thompson lunged at him and tried to take his car key, a police report on the incident states.

When police arrived, Thompson gave the officer a name and date of birth of someone later identified as a high school friend. During a search, police found Thompson’s ID, which Thompson at first claimed was a friend’s, then said “you got me,” according to the report. The officer found Thompson had a felony warrant for failure to follow parole conditions.

If convicted, Thompson could face between 11 and 15 months under the standard sentencing range.
