Spokane Police Respond To Two Burglaries In Progress; Suspect Quickly Apprehended

Posted: Updated:

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE POLICE DEPT: Spokane Police responded to two separate incidents of residential burglaries in progress in the area of Longfellow/Pittsburg (1200 block of E. Longfellow) and Walton/Pittsburg (3900 block of N. Pittsburgh) around 3:30 Sunday morning.

The suspect eluded officers at the Longfellow address, but Officers Boothe, Specht and Overhoff apprehended 31-year-old Christian A. Wendt at a home south of 3900 N. Pittsburg. Wendt was carrying goods from both burglaries and additional items from an unknown victim.

Wendt attempted to fight with officers but was quickly taken into custody. These incidents occurred in or around areas SPD Crime Analysts identified as potential hotspots for burglary activity and SPD had already allocated officers to patrol this area. 

Because of this resource allocation officers were able to quickly respond to the call and apprehend the suspect.
