Spokane County sheriff’s deputies arrested a suspected burglar Wednesday, then attended to the man’s infant daughter who had been left alone during the attempted break-in, according to a news release.
Dyllin Trottier, 21, was booked into Spokane County Jail just before 7 p.m. Wednesday, after deputies found him hiding in a laundry room crawl space at a home in the 4100 block of North McDonald Road, according to the release. A neighbor reported witnessing the break-in, and sheriff’s deputies discovered the door jamb of the home was broken.
As Trottier was being handcuffed, he asked deputies to check on his 9-month-old daughter in an apartment across the street, the Sheriff’s Office said. They found the girl crying in a high chair, according to the release. Trottier told deputies he’d left the child to “chase someone.”
A babysitter watched the girl until her mother could leave work to care for her, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Trottier faces charges of residential burglary and reckless endangerment. He is scheduled to appear in court as early as Thursday afternoon.

Dozens of laptop computers were stolen during an overnight burglary at Evergreen Elementary School in Mead earlier this week, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office said.
A janitor at the school reported two alarms overnight Monday into Tuesday, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release. Neither of the alarms turned up evidence of a burglary. But when school officials arrived Tuesday morning for work, they discovered 58 MacBook Air laptop computers missing from two classrooms, according to the release. Deputies found no evidence of forced entry into the school or classrooms.
The Mead School District estimates losses at more than $69,000, according to The Spokesman-Review of Spokane.
The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information about the theft to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS or online at crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org. A cash reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
