Dog stabbed in family argument in Liberty Lake

Liberty Lake police officers discovered a dog that had been stabbed when they were called to assist the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office in the 19000 block of East Buckeye Avenue the evening of Sept. 19. During the 911 call a woman was screaming and a child was crying in the background, said police Chief Brian Asmus.

There was apparently a family argument and the dog was stabbed, Asmus said. The scene was turned over to deputies when they arrived, and Asmus said he did not know the condition of the dog.

The rest of the week of Sept. 19: Monday was calmer, but there were still several arrests. Officers located and arrested a suspect in a residential burglary on Tanglewood Lane last week, Asmus said. Spokane Valley resident Christopher J. Crosby, 20, was arrested on suspicion of residential burglary, trafficking in stolen property and possession of stolen property. He also was wanted on a felony arrest warrant for theft in Idaho.

Employees at Albertsons called police at 10:45 p.m. on Sept. 22 to report that a woman had stolen an 18-pack of beer and left in a white station wagon with Idaho plates. Police have a license plate number for the car and video surveillance footage of the woman stealing the beer, Asmus said. A suspect has been identified.

There were four arrests for driving with a suspended license. Citations given included two for failure to show proof of liability insurance, two for defective muffler, two to failure to stop at a stop sign, six for speeding, five for use of a cellphone and two for failure to wear a safety belt.
