Two bomb threats phoned to Liberty Lake hotel; nothing foun

A Liberty Lake hotel received two bomb threats Sunday, but nothing was found in either search.

The first call came to the Quality Inn and Suites front desk about 12:45 p.m. from a man who said he was going to blow up the hotel. An officer and the manager did a walk-through of the hotel on Madson Street and found nothing out of place, said police Chief Brian Asmus. About an hour later the KXLY news desk reported getting a similar threat against the hotel phoned in by an elderly woman. The hotel was evacuated and thoroughly searched, but again nothing was found, Asmus said.

On Monday, an unusual burglary was reported in the 25000 block of East Hawkstone Loop at 11:37 a.m. A woman reported that a white man in his 20s wearing dark clothes came into her apartment without permission, Asmus said. The man allegedly shouted at the woman, then told her he was sorry for disrespecting her and left, Asmus said. The case is under investigation.
