A Spokane Valley man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and theft after a police officer recognized him from surveillance photos.
Ryan P. Haddigan, 36, (right, allegedly) is accused of burglarizing a home in the 3600 block of South Vercler Lane and stealing credit cards and two Apple iPhones.
The woman discovered the burglary May 6 and said Haddigan was listed as a possible suspect. She said he'd given an iPhone to an acquaintance at the apartment that day and said the phone would only work for a day or two.
Surveillance video from Washington Trust Bank captured images of a man using one of the stolen credit cards. The victim said Haddigan sometimes babysat chidlren at his ex-wife's home at the Keystone Apartments on East Third Avenue.
Officer Ken Dodge was at the apartment complex Saturday when he spotted a man "who looked and dressed like the suspect in the security photo" and asked him to come talk to him, which prompted the man to throw stolen credit cards on the ground.
Police also found a syringe loaded with meth in Haddigan's clothing. Haddigan was booked into jail for residential burglary, possession of meth and nine counts of second-degree theft.
