On August 18, 2014, at approximately 1:25 p.m., deputies with the Sheriff’s Rincon District responded to a 9-1-1 call about a burglary in progress. Deputies arrived at the incident location in the 3600 block of North Soldier Trail in less than 4 minutes.
Upon arrival, they noticed a white Pontiac G6 sedan in the driveway. The vehicle was backed up against the garage. In the driver’s seat was a female, later identified as 39-year-old Shannon Spooner. In the passenger seat was her 1 ½ year-old infant child. As deputies had blocked her escape route with their patrol cars, the woman surrendered into their custody.
A 15-year-old male and his 43-year-old father came running out of the main entrance to the residence. Both of them were taken into custody as well. The adult was later identified as Sonny Conrad.
Detectives with the Sheriff’s Burglary Unit responded to the scene to conduct their investigation. They determined that the two males apparently forced entry into the home by breaking a window on the backside of the house. Detectives also had access to surveillance footage from another recent burglary at a different location that appeared to show the suspect’s vehicle. A possible connection is being investigated.
The infant was turned over into the custody of a relative. Child Protective Services was notified of the incident. Conrad had two unrelated misdemeanor warrants. He was also charged with 2nd Degree Burglary and Child Abuse. Spooner was charged with Conspiracy to Commit 2nd Degree Burglary and Child Abuse. The 15-year-old juvenile was charged with 2nd Degree Burglary.
