Note to burglar: Remove ankle monitor before next crime

The Associated Press

The Okanogan County sheriff’s office says a man accused of a break-in at the Okanogan, Wash., Eagles Lodge was arrested after deputies checked where his ankle monitor had been.

Deputies who responded Tuesday to a burglary call at the lodge found a phone line cut, a back door pried open and $2,000 missing from a safe.

After watching surveillance video of two intruders coming and going several times early that morning, deputies focused on a young man who had been arrested after a 2012 lodge break-in.

The sheriff’s office says deputies thought the man was jailed on unrelated matters but learned he had been released — with an ankle monitor.

A check of the monitor’s history showed it had been in the Eagles Lodge at the same time as the break-in. Deputies arrested 22-year-old Kyle Snyder of Omak for investigation of burglary, theft and malicious mischief.

Sheriff Frank Rogers says additional arrests are expected.
