Neighbor helps busts burglary suspects

A citizen’s report of suspicious activity in north Spokane County led to the arrest of two suspected burglars this afternoon, the sheriff's office.

A neighbor in the 7000 block of North Stevens Street observed the men looking into windows at a home before one climbed over the fence. Spokane County sheriff’s deputies responded and found a door and basement window open.

Deputy John Cook and his K-9, Ekko, and the other deputies located the suspects hiding in the home after they used a patrol car's loudspeaker to try to get them to surrender.

The suspects, whose names have not yet been released, received medical treatment for minor injuries at the scene. They face felony burglary charges.
