Two burglars were caught in the act this morning in north Spokane, police say.
Spokane police officers saw two men flee an unsecured garage and drop items in a backyard after responding to a burglary in progress in the 4000 block of North Cincinnati Street at 5:58 a.m.
The men jumped fences and tried to hide, but police found suspect Nicholas A. Limpert, 25, (right) hiding under a car in the 900 block of East Heroy Avenue.
A second suspect, Robert J. McNabb, 20, (left) also was arrested and booked into jail on a second-degree burglary charge.
Limpert is a convicted felon who has been wanted by Crime Stoppers twice since 2008.
His criminal history includes convictions for domestic violence assault, possessing a dangerous weapon, city theft, second-degree theft, first-degree theft, malicious mischief and vehicle prowling.
McNabb was sentenced in October to 33 days in jail and two years probation for first-degree attempted burglary, possession of a controlled substance, second-degree theft and forgery.
