SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - Raids early Thursday morning on two Spokane County homes led to the recovery of property stolen from a North Spokane County home over the Christmas holidays.

The raids, conducted by Spokane County Sheriff's detectives and agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), were part of an ongoing investigation into a vehicle theft and burglary in December.

The burglary victim had been out of town from shortly before Christmas until after the new year. When he returned to his tome near Colbert on January 4, he discovered the break-in and that numerous firearms and other collectibles had been stolen. His van was missing as well.

ATF and SWAT conducted the first raid at 5 a.m. Thursday at a home in the 1300 block of W. Dalton. The Spokane County Sheriff's office says they received a tip that the homeowner had purchased guns from another party. In the raid six people were detained, but authorities did not find any stolen guns, though they did recover coins.

Later Thursday morning, SWAT and ATF conducted a second raid at a home off Deer Park-Milan Rd., during which three people were detained and one stolen gun was recovered.

ATF believes the burglars made several repeat trips to the victim's home to remove property.

In serving the search warrants and through interviews Thursday morning, sheriff's detectives were led to a pair of storage units atop the Sunset Hill where they recovered more stolen property, including a grandfather clock.

items, in a self-storage shed off Sunset Highway.)


No arrests have been made. The investigation is ongoing and sheriff's detectives are continuing to build their case.
