[ARCHIVED] What Not to Do if You’re Having Car Troubles


What Not to Do if You’re Having Car Troubles

The caregiver at a North Spokane County residence was surprised to find an unknown and peculiar acting male in the living room area of an assisted living residence.  Deputies arrived on scene in minutes and later arrested 28-year-old Casey J. Barbour for Criminal Trespass 1st Degree and a misdemeanor warrant.  

On January 31, 2018, just before 1:00 a.m., Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a report of a possibly intoxicated or confused male found inside an assisted living home located in the 7700 block of N. Wall. 

The caregiver stated he was assisting a client when he heard the front door close.  He immediately thought this was very strange because he hadn’t received a phone call advising of a new client.  He cautiously walked into the living room area to investigate and found a male, later identified as Barbour, standing in the front room.  He asked Barbour what he was doing and Barbour muttered something about a car problem.  In an attempt to coax Barbour into leaving the residence without escalating the situation, the caregiver offered to go outside and help with the problem but Barbour would not leave.

After a minute or two, Barbour began to walk toward the door but turned into the kitchen area and lingered around the sink.  With Barbour’s odd and detached behavior, the caregiver kept his distance and waited for an opportunity to call 911 without Barbour knowing.  As he walked back into the front room, he heard the door close again and observed Barbour standing near a white truck parked in the front yard. 

Deputy Brent Miller arrived accompanied by several additional units and detained Barbour.  Deputy Miller noticed the white F250 was parked in the yard, completely blocking the sidewalk, and partially blocking the roadway.  He asked Barbour about the incident but received no response. 

A check of Barbour’s name revealed an unrelated active misdemeanor warrant (Reckless Driving) for his arrest.  Barbour was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for the warrant and, lacking any known intent to commit a crime once inside the residence, an addition charge of Criminal Trespass 1st Degree.
