SPOKANE VALLEY-- A burglary suspect told deputies he was dating the homeowner whose door he just kicked in.
On Thursday around 11:00 a.m., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to the area of 6800 E. 8th Avenue for a burglary in progress and contacted the victim/homeowner in front of her residence.
The victim told deputies that 50-year-old Kevin Bunch had kicked in the back door to her residence and he was still in the house. Deputies responded to the rear of the house and saw Bunch running westbound on 8th away from the residence.
Deputies quickly set up containment and searched the area with a Sheriff's Office K-9 unit. Deputies located Bunch hiding between a fence and a house near the area a short time later.
Bunch told deputies he and the victim were in a relationship, which the victim said was not true whatsoever.
Bunch was booked into the Spokane County Jail on the felony charge of Residential Burglary.
