Spokane Valley Homeowners Awakened By Stranger Inside Home

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - On Monday morning, at about 2:30 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to a residential burglary call near the area of 1000 N. Progress Rd. The 88-year-old homeowner told 911 that she was awakened by a noise at her front door. 

After the noise stopped she got out of bed to get a drink of water. As she walked through her living room she saw an adult male, later identified as 21-year-old Jeffrey Danielson, standing inside her house by the front door. 
 
The homeowner screamed for her son, who confronted Danielson. The homeowner's son asked Danielson what he was doing and Danielson replied "What do you mean? I am not trying to start anything here." 

The homeowner's son told Danielson to leave and watched as he walked to the front yard of their neighbors yard. Neither the homeowner or her son had ever seen Danielson before.
 
Spokane Valley Deputy N. Bohanek and Corporal B. Gilbert arrived on scene and located Danielson in the neighbors front yard. After Deputy Bohanek spoke with the victims, Danielson was placed under arrest for Residential Burglary. Due to Danielson's high level of intoxication Deputy Bohanek chose not to ask him any questions about the incident.
 
Danielson was booked into Spokane County Jail on the charge of Residential Burglary as well as a no-bail DUI warrant.
