MISSING: 1,500 Pound Pool Table

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. – Detectives in Spokane Valley are searching for clues and cues after a vintage pool table vanished from a home earlier this year.

Someone apparently stole a Brunswick pool table valued at $10,000 from a vacant home being sold on Upriver Drive.

"We were in shock because it's not an easy job to move a pool table of that size," said Sheila Geraghty who estimates the slate alone on the table weighed about 1,500 pounds.

"Right now my heart is broken that the pool table I learned to play pool on as a child is gone," she said.

Geraghty said her grandparent's home has been for sale for 3 years. During that time, dozens of people have toured the property and several people have house sat. Geraghty is asking detectives to investigate whether someone who toured the home knew the house was not occupied and stole the table.

The family has since changed all the home's locks, secured the driveway with a gate and activated an alarm system to prevent future break-ins.

Geraghty said a homeless man recently walked into the home and was thrown-out by a detective from the Spokane County Sheriff's Office. The family did not discover the table was missing until several days after that.

No neighbors reported seeing anything suspicious at the home. Moving the heavy gaming table would take several people and maybe a machine to move the piece.

The family recently discovered several pieces of dining room furniture were also taken.

No fingerprints were found on glass doors or windows at the home.

Geraghty hopes someone will see news coverage of the theft and call Spokane area's Crime Check hotline at (509) 456-2233.

    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.
