Post Falls police: Porn, theft lured boy to library

A 14-year-old boy hoping to scour the Internet for pornography and steal computer equipment was arrested Monday at the Post Falls Public Library, police said. Police arrested the boy on suspicion of burglary after he crawled out a roof window near the northwest corner of the library, 821 N. Spokane St., about 6:42 p.m., according to a Post Falls Police Department news release. He “eventually confessed” to breaking a library window to gain access under questioning at the Police Department and revealed his motive, police said. The teen received minor injuries as a result of the break-in and was treated by medics. He was booked into the Kootenai County Juvenile Detention Center.
