Police juggernaut thwarts crafty crime

OK, maybe the headline is a bit of an exaggeration.

Two burglary suspects were arrested Monday after one invited police to search his apartment and they found a stolen TV.

Jarrod J. Howard, 29, assured Spokane Valley police Officer Chan Erdman he wouldn't find anything in his apartment at 10101 E. Main Ave. when Erdman arrived to investigate a burglary at a neighbor's apartment.

Erdman found the TV under a blanket on a bed.

A witness had called police after spotting Howard and another man stealing from the apartment. Police also found stolen knives and X-Box games.

Howard was booked into jail on a burglary charge with suspected accomplice Justin Spenser Johns, 25.
