Felts Field Hangar Burglar Arrested

SPOKANE, Wash. - Acting on a citizen's tip about a suspicious person, Spokane Valley Police Thursday arrested a 30-year-old Spokane man for the burglary of a Felts Field hangar and recovered military memorabilia and other property belonging to the tenant.

Daniel J. Christensen, 800 W. Spofford, was booked into the Spokane County Jail on felony counts of Second-Degree Burglary and Second-Degree Theft.

A citizen called Crime Check about 6:30 a.m. Thursday and said a man had removed large duffel bags that had been stashed behind a concrete barrier located along the airfield's east security fencing.

Deputies arrived and located Christensen leaving the area with a bag and two swords.  The bag contained U.S. Marine clothing and flight items which the suspect claimed belonged to his grandfather.  However, he could not give them the name that was stenciled on the military clothing.

A friend of the victim contacted officers and told them he believed the items came from a hangar.  Officers later found the hangar and learned the tenant is now a pilot for FedEx.  He was in Memphis, Tennessee Thursday.

 They contacted his wife and returned the stolen property which had been hidden in two separate locations.
