Prowler in Liberty Lake leaves footprints in snow

Sat., Feb. 15, 2014

A resident in a downstairs apartment in the 22000 block of East Country Vista Drive reported to Liberty Lake police that she had seen a man outside her bedroom window Sunday.

An officer responded and found fresh tracks in the snow leading to the woman’s window, said police Chief Brian Asmus. The woman’s porch light had also been tampered with so it wouldn’t work, he said.

Police believe the man is a neighbor, but he denied any involvement when police spoke to him, Asmus said. Charges will be pursued if anything similar happens again, Asmus said.
