Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies Catch Burglars!

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - On Monday Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy R. Smith responded to the 3500 block of South McDonald Road reference a residential burglary. Deputy Smith contacted the homeowner who told him that he had left his house at about 10:45 a.m. and when he and his daughter returned at about 2:00 p.m. he found his back slider door partially open. The homeowner also noticed all the bedroom doors were open and that his bedroom had been ransacked.

 The homeowner walked out the front door and saw an adult male, later identified as 20-year-old Nathanial Hubbard, walking northwest from his backyard. The homeowner yelled at Hubbard to stop and Hubbard ran from the scene. The homeowner thought Hubbard possibly had a weapon because he had a handgun secure in his bedroom. The homeowner saw Hubbard was holding his waistband area while running. 
 
When the homeowner returned to his residence his daughter told him after Hubbard ran, a silver truck sped off from the neighborhood in the same direction Hubbard was running. The homeowner later realized his handgun had been stolen along with several .50 and $1.00 coins.
 
Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy J. Depriest had responded to the scene and heard the direction Hubbard and the driver of the suspect vehicle, later identified as 25-year-old Robert Best, had fled. Knowing there was limited access to the area, Deputy Depriest positioned himself near the area of 40th and Woodlawn Road. 
 
At about that time a vehicle matching the suspect vehicle description turned at a "T" intersection near Deputy Depriest. Deputy Depriest followed the vehicle for a short distance and when a Spokane Valley Corporal joined him, they stopped the vehicle. Initially Deputy Depriest was only able to see the driver inside the vehicle. Once the vehicle was stopped a second head appeared from the passenger side seat. 
 
Due to the possibility this may be the suspect vehicle, and there was possibly a weapon in the vehicle, Deputies J. Bodman and T. Walker assisted in conducting a felony stop on the vehicle.  Once they had Hubbard and Best in custody, Sheriff K9 Ekko and his handler cleared the vehicle for other passengers. 

While clearing the vehicle, Ekko's handler saw a handgun under the front passenger seat. The victim came to the scene and positively identified the handgun as the one stolen from his residence.
 
After Hubbard and Best were placed under arrest, the jewelry and coins taken from the victim's residence were located in their pockets. Some of these items had the homeowner's name inscribed on them and were also positively identified by the homeowner.

Hubbard and Best were both booked into the Spokane County Jail on the charge of 1st Degree Burglary.
