Police seeking help identifying car thief

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Spokane Valley property crimes detectives are seeking the public's help in identifying a prolific car thief who has been particularly active of late.

On Thursday, June 25th, police say the man stole three vehicles, the first a blue 1990 Toyota Camry from an Avista parking lot at 1411 E. Mission.  He dumped that car at 200 S. Evergreen Road in Spokane Valley and stole a 1997 Subaru Legacy station wagon from a nearby nursing home parking lot.

Detectives got a break when the suspect went to the east side of the Rosauers Store at 10600 E. Sprague.  Security video shows him dumping the stolen Legacy station wagon and stealing a 1997 Subaru Outback station wagon parked there.

On June 24th, detectives believe the same suspect stole a 1990 Nissan Stanza from a home at 1300 W. Augusta in Spokane.  He dumped it in the 900 block of North Bessie in Spokane Valley and stole a 1990 Nissan Pathfinder from a nearby residence. 

The Pathfinder has not yet been recovered.

Anyone with information regarding the thefts of these vehicles or the suspect involved is urged to call Crime Check at 456-2233

  • Fire lined vs. fire containment: What's the difference?

    Fire lined vs. fire containment: What's the difference?

    Wednesday, July 18 2018 1:48 PM EDT2018-07-18 17:48:19 GMT

    SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - We've had a lot of questions about what firefighters  are talking about when they say that the fire is 100 percent lined, but that the Upriver-Beacon fire is 0% contained. Here's the gist, according to firefighters: Containment is essentially their faith in the strength of the fire line. So when they say there is a line around 100 percent of the fire, but 0 percent containment, it means they are concerned that the fire could jump the line.
