Suspected Naked burglar arraigned Thursday

Gonzaga University urged the community to show their Bulldog pride today by wearing their favorite GU gear.

And even the alleged Naked Burglar appears to have taken them up on it.

Trevor Lee Franklin, suspected of breaking into a Browne's Addition apartment Jan. 8 and trashing the place while stripping naked, showed up for his arraignment today in Spokane County Superior Court decked out in a Gonzaga hoodie.

The fully clothed Franklin pleaded "not guilty" to charges of residential burglary and the judge set his trial date for April 15, with a pretrial hearing on April 5.

Franklin, a registered sex offender, was arrested outside the trashed apartment after the tenant called police to report a naked man had broken into his home and tried to hug him when he and his girlfriend discovered him. Franklin reportedly was in possession of items that had been taken from the apartment when officers arrested him.
