2 arrested in Spokane Valley burglary

Two men were arrested on suspicion of burglary Monday after a Spokane Valley man and his daughter arrived home in the middle of the day to find a possibly armed burglar walking from their backyard.

Nathanial Brooks Hubbard, 20, and Robert E. Best, IV, 25, are accused of ransacking a bedroom in the home in the 3500 block of South McDonald Road and stealing a gun and several 50 cent and $1 coins.

The homeowner said he'd left about 10:45 a.m. and returned about 2 p.m. to find his back slider door partially open then saw a man later identified as Hubbard outside.

A sheriff's deputy responded and located the suspect vehicle near East 40th Avenue and South Woodlawn Drive, east of the Painted Hills Golf Course. The deputy and Valley police corporal stopped the car and identified the driver as Best and Hubbard the passenger. Sheriff's K-9 Ekko searched the car for others passenger; Ekko's handler found the stolen handgun under the front seat.

Hubbard and Best had the stolen coins in their pockets. They were booked into jail for first-degree burglary.

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.

K-9 helps nab sibling burglary suspects

A sheriff's dog helped deputies arrest two brothers suspected of an attempted burglary this morning in north Spokane County.

A resident in the 1000 block of West Eastmont Way called 911 a few minutes before 7 a.m. and said he was following two burglars. He lost sight of them, but deputies spotted suspects Joseph E. Whipple, 23, (pictured) and Luke R. Whipple, who turns 22 on Tuesday, behind a bank at 7300 N. Division St.

Joseph Whipple was arrested just after fleeing; Deputy John Cook and his K-9, Ekko, tracked Luke Whipple to a basement window well of a home north of Holy Cross Cemetery.

Neither suspect was injured in the pursuit and arrest, but a sheriff’s deputy suffered a minor hand injury while climbing a fence, said Sgt. Dave Reagan.

The brothers were booked into jail on charges of attempted residential burglary and possession of marijuana.

Luke Whipple also faces a charge of obstructing a police investigation, and Joseph Whipple had an arrest warrant form the Department of Corrections for a 2009 second-degree robbery conviction.
