Glass shards connect burglary suspect

An 18-year-old man is in Spokane County Jail for allegedly burglarizing a downtown credit union overnight. Shards of glass matching the credit union’s broken window were found in his pocket when he was arrested, Spokane police said. Kirtis L. Porambo faces a charge of second-degree burglary. Authorities responded to an alarm at Primesource Credit Union, 428 E. Third Ave., about 1:50 a.m., said police spokeswoman Officer Jennifer DeRuwe. Witnesses told police a man jumped through a broken window at the bank and provided a description. Porambo was found at Fifth Avenue and Garfield Street, DeRuwe said. “Surveillance video from inside the bank was reviewed by officers, and Porambo was clearly seen inside the bank. It does not appear that anything was taken from inside the credit union,” DeRuwe said.
