Truck burglar sought

The Spokesman-Review

Spokane Valley is seeking the public’s help in locating a suspect who burglarized a truck last weekend at Transport Equipment Co.

The burglar cut his way through the security fence at 1106 N. Thierman sometime between 4:30 p.m. Saturday and 6 a.m. Monday, Spokane Valley police spokesman Cpl. Dave Reagan said. Tools, a television and a DVD player were stolen from an unlocked truck stored there.

Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call 242-8477.

Man arrested at Plantes Ferry Park

Spokane Valley police arrested a man Monday morning after he was accused of using his car to tear up lawns and ram a tree in Plantes Ferry Park.

Shawn L. Vanzandt, 503 N. Bowman, was arrested on a warrant for third-degree malicious mischief and charged with an additional count of third-degree malicious mischief in connection with his actions at the park, Spokane Valley police spokesman Cpl. Dave Reagan.

About 7 a.m., a deputy responded to the park after several reports of a man acting strangely, Reagan said. The deputy found the man at the south end of the park near a tree. The man’s car had three flat tires and a dented bumper, apparently from ramming into a tree. The soccer fields at the park appeared to have been torn up by car tires.

A park employee estimated the damage at $100, Reagan said.
