Man arrested for burglary asks to check on child

SPOKANE VALLEY — Spokane Valley sheriff’s deputies say a 21-year-old man they found hiding in a neighbor’s laundry room crawl space had an unusual request as they arrested him: could he check on his infant daughter in his nearby apartment?

Sheriff’s Deputy Craig Chamberlin said deputies went to the apartment Wednesday and saw the little girl crying in a high chair. While one deputy picked up the child, another located a neighbor who babysits for the infant’s mother. Chamberlin said the child’s mother came home from work and took custody of the baby.

Chamberlin said deputies responded to a 911 call from a neighbor who saw a man with red hair and red sweatpants break into a home.

Deputies found a broken front door — and the intruder.

The man was booked into jail for investigation of residential burglary and reckless endangerment.
