Valley Burglar Borrows Contractor's Tools

Posted 9/23/2013 10:55 AM by MDGREGORY

On Sunday, September 22nd, 2013, Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to the area of 2500 N. Coleman Road on a possible burglary in progress call. The neighbor witnessed a male subject walk from behind his neighbor's vacant home, which was being remodeled, carrying tools and other property the witness did not believe belonged to him.

Sgt. D. Martin arrived on scene and located a male subject matching the suspect's description, later identified as 43-year-old Jason Trampush, near 2200 N. Coleman. Sgt. Martin also observed the two bags the neighbor observed Trampush carrying lying on the ground next to him. Sgt. Martin detained Trampush and after advising him of his rights, Trampush initially said the bags full of tools belonged to him. Eventually, Trampush said he only borrowed the tools from the vacant house and he was going to bring them back the following day and ask the contractor if he could have a job.

• Trampush was booked into the Spokane County Jail on the felony charge of Residential Burglary.
