Spokane Police Catch Residential Burglar

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police responded to a residential burglary in progress Saturday night in the 100 block of S Madelia St.  The female victim advised the male suspect had just kicked in her front door and was inside her residence. The victim told the intruder she had just called police, which caused him to run away. Officers arrived in less than a minute and immediately set up a perimeter. After searching with a  police K9 they were unable to locate the suspect.

     The victim was able to give Ofc J. Dotson a very good description of the suspect and stated she could identify him if seen again.  CPL T. Meyer, Ofc D. Daddato and Ofc Dotson were able to temporarily fix the victim's front door so it could be locked and secured.

     A few hours later, Spokane Police Officers Dotson and Daddato were patrolling the 1800 hundred block of east Sprague Ave and observed a subject matching the description of the burglar from S Madelia St.  The officers contacted and detained the subject after he attempted to hide in a bar. 

     Ofc Dotson re-contacted the victim of the residential burglary and conducted a field show-up.  The victim positively identified the suspect as the burglar.  Officer G. Rogan located a witness who was told by the suspect that he had kicked in someone's front door earlier in the evening.  The suspect was placed under arrest, transported and booked at Spokane County Jail for residential burglary. 

     The suspect was identified as 31 year old Demetrius N Golden.
