Hillyard Neighborhood Fearful Of Burglar That Won't Go Away

SPOKANE, Wash. - A burglar has been harassing people living in a Hillyard neighborhood for the past few weeks. He was even spotted stalking them this morning. Neighbors say they have information about who the suspect might be, but say police aren't doing enough to make him stop.

"They're in danger," said Angel Jones, burglary victim. "Everyone is in danger around here."

Angel Jones says the first burglary happened on November 29th when $3000 worth of stuff was taken out of a truck sitting on the street. Later that night Jones was the next victim and had her debit card, checkbook and $200 sunglasses taken out of her car. Since then the suspect has been seen back in the neighborhood many times looking into house windows.

"I don't sleep, my kids have nightmares. They think he's going to come in our house and it's getting ridiculous," said Jones.

Jones says they have a description of the suspect's car, and even have a picture of him from surveillance video when he tried to use her debit card at Walmart. She says despite all the leg-work police still aren't doing anything about it, but police say it's just not that simple.

"Part of it is finding out who the suspect is, but really that's only a check mark," said Jen Deruwe, Spokane Police Department spokesperson. "Once we find out who the suspect is we still have to establish probable cause before we can make an arrest."

Jones says they have called police several times, but nothing is being done and if they continue being harassed they might have to take things into their own hands. Something police don't recommend.

"They're pretty much telling us not to do anything but what can we do to protect ourselves," said Jones.

Police suggest residents still call when they see the suspect in their neighborhood, but Jones doesn't feel this is much of a priority.

"What's it going to take? Someone getting shot, our children getting hurt? What's it going to take for this guy to be taken seriously," said Jones.

Neighbors are offering a $250 reward to anyone that can identify the suspect burglarizing their neighborhood.
