Suspected Burglar/Vehicle Prowler Arrested In Spokane Valley

Spokane County Sheriff's Department Press Release:

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash.- On Friday December 9, 2011, Spokane Valley Deputies and Property Crimes Unit Detectives arrested Nathan J. Calvert, 28, for one count of Residential Burglary and one count of Theft of a Motor Vehicle.  The incident started Friday morning at about 06:30am when patrol deputies were called to the 1500 block of N. Coach regarding a possible prowler.  A Spokane Valley resident told investigators he chased and caught Calvert after he found Calvert inside his vehicle. The resident detained Calvert and waited for deputies to arrive.

The responding deputies discovered Calvert had an outstanding felony warrant for his arrest and was driving a red Jeep which was reported stolen from the city of Spokane about a week earlier. The deputies also observed the Jeep was loaded with what appeared to be items commonly stolen in burglaries and vehicle prowlings. Calvert was transported to the Spokane Valley Precinct where he was interviewed by property crimes detectives.

Detectives determined the Jeep was in fact full of stolen items taken during many recent vehicle prowlings and garage burglaries. Calvert confessed to committing as many as 30-40 vehicle prowlings a night over the last several weeks throughout Spokane County and the City of Spokane Valley.  He attempted to direct detectives to several of the locations where he committed many of the crimes, but detectives were only able to return items to 14 victims. Calvert was booked into the Spokane County Jail on the two new felony charges in addition to his warrant. He may be charged with a dozen or more additional felony charges including burglary and theft once the investigation is completed.

As many as 80-100 items recovered from the Jeep haven't been claimed or returned to their owners. Several victims who were contacted on Friday hadn't reported the crimes to police, slowing the return of the property.

In an effort to return as much property back to victims, Spokane Valley Police posted photos of the stolen items on their Facebook page in the hopes the victims may be able to identify their property. Property Crimes Unit Detectives encourage victims of unreported vehicle prowlings to call Crime Check at 456-2233. If you recognize any of the items posted on the Spokane Valley Police Department's Facebook page as items stolen from you, contact the Spokane Valley Police at 477-3300.
