SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -- Sheriff’s deputies said after they responded to a burglary call Wednesday and arrested the suspect inside the home, the man asked to check on his infant daughter before being hauled off to jail.
On Wednesday, deputies responded to the area of 4100 N. McDonald on a residential burglary call. A neighbor called 911 and said she saw a male with red hair and red sweat pants break into the residence. She told dispatch that she knew the homeowner and knew the woman was at work.
Deputies said they arrived and entered the residence, finding Dyllin Trottier, 21, hiding in a crawl space in the laundry room.
While deputies were taking him into custody, Trottier reportedly asked if they could go to his apartment across the street and check on his 9-month-old infant daughter. He told deputies that he left her there alone while he was "chasing someone," authorities said.
According to the deputies, Trottier’s 9-month-old daughter was found at his home crying in a high chair. The child's mother was called to the scene and took custody of the infant.
Trottier was booked into jail for Reckless Endangerment and Residential Burglary.
