Vehicle Prowlings Of Fords Not Getting Better

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE: A rash of vehicle prowling reports involving Ford trucks continued this week with four more break-ins reported to Crime Check by drivers of the popular line of pickups.

On Monday, four victims reported having their Ford trucks broken into while parked at the East Sprague Lowes, the East Sprague Aslin-Finch store (across from Lowes) and at an unspecified parking lot at Fancher and Main.

Today, another Monday break-in was reported by a Colfax resident who said her F-350 pickup was broken into at the Lowes parking lot. 

A Lowes employee reviewed security video and said the suspect had been driving a green Chevrolet Suburban with no visible license plates. The victim in this incident lost a $300 Garmin GPS unit. 

Entry was gained by prying off a door handle which broke the lock. Also on Monday, two victims reported having their Ford trucks prowled while parked at the Quality Inn in the 8900 block of East Mission. 

The first victim had suitcases, a Samsung camera and other miscellaneous items stolen from his F-150. Entry was made by breaking a door handle.

The second victim told Crime Check his F-150 was entered and a bag containing $600 worth of tools was taken. The truck was locked at the time and the suspect dented the tailgate during the theft.

The most-recent report involves the break-in of an F-350 in the Albertson's grocery parking lot at Trent and Argonne.  The truck is a state-owned vehicle assigned by the Washington State Training Commission to a Spokane Police Detective.

The detective reported he was on-duty when the suspect damaged the door lock to gain entry and stole his briefcase containing a laptop computer.  He said he did not see the theft, but that a witness reported two men in a green Chevy Suburban had broken into the vehicle.

Anyone driving a Ford pickup is encouraged to park in a high visibility area of Spokane Valley parking lots.

>>>Anyone with information about this series of vehicle break-ins or the suspects involved is encouraged to call Crime Check (456-2233).
