SPOKANE-- An 88-year-old Spokane Valley homeowner woke up to a stranger in her home on Monday.
Officials say that around 2:30 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to a residential burglary call near the area of 1000 N. Progress Road.
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. The woman says she saw an adult male in her home by the front door while she walked through her living room.
The homeowner screamed for her son, who confronted the intruder identified as 21 year old Jeffrey 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 neighbor’s yard. Neither the homeowner nor her son had ever seen Danielson before.
Spokane Valley Deputies arrived on scene and located Danielson in the neighbor’s front yard. After a deputy spoke with the victims, Danielson was placed under arrest for Residential Burglary. Due to Danielson's high level of intoxication the deputies 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.
