Spokane Police Make Two Arrests, Still Looking For Third Home Burglary Suspect

SPOKANE, Wash – Police are still looking for a third man believed to have been involved in a home burglary around 8:00 a.m. Tuesday in the 1400 block of West Maxwell in Spokane.

The people inside the home called 911 saying the suspects were trying to break through the door and were threatening to kill them. When police arrived, they heard a loud bang and saw three men run out the back door.

"We were still sleeping and we heard a bunch of yelling and screaming, and we heard a gunshot - we thought it was a gunshot - and we got out bed and we saw 3 guys running between the house and the apartments," next-door neighbor Kandi Smith told KHQ's Kelsey Watts.

As it turns out, police say the men may have been using a fire extinguisher to break down the door, which may account for the loud bang. Fire retardant foam was found sprayed there.

Police say one of the suspects is believed to be the ex-boyfriend of one of the women in the home.

"I guess they were trying to break the door down in the apartment with a bat," Smith added. "[It makes us] nervous, we have kids – but there's always fighting going on over there, there's always something."

Police ran after the suspects, and caught two of them. Alexander Vanzandt, 23, and Jory Vallee, 24, were arrested at the scene, but a third suspect got away. He's described as a Native American man who was wearing a black t-shirt, gray shorts and a black backpack.

Vanzandt and Vallee are expected in court Wednesday, facing charges of first-degree burglary. Vanzandt also is charged with possession of a controlled substance.
