Police nab burglar after neighbor’s call

Spokane police say they caught a residential burglar just minutes after the crime occurred Wednesday night.

Officers arrived at the home in the 600 block of East Cozza Drive about 7:10 p.m. after a neighbor reported seeing a man kick in the unoccupied home’s front door.

When officers arrived, Jesse W. Moore, 24, ran at the front door before being arrested near the intersection of North Dakota Street and Sitka Avenue, police said. Police found a pillowcase with items from the burglary along the path Moore ran, according to a news release.

“Once placed inside a police car, Moore began violently pounding his head against the windows and would not stop,” according to the release, so officers restrained his legs, then transported him to the Spokane County Jail.

He was booked on charges of residential burglary, obstructing and resisting arrest.
