Spokane Police arrest 18-year-old Anthony P. Brower for Residential Burglary and Felony Harassment (Threats to Kill) after he allegedly burglarized a home and threatened a victim with a replica rifle. Additionally, it was reported that Brower was telling people in the area he was a police officer

Last night, 08/13/2104, at approximately 7:30 p.m., Spokane Police officers responded to the report of a suspicious person in the area of 8900 N. Colton. It was reported a male had been seen carrying what appeared to be a rifle and was telling neighbors he was a police officer.
