North Spokane County Daycare Vehicle Thefts Continue

NORTH SPOKANE, Wash. - The last thing busy parents need is a stolen car but that's exactly what's happening in north Spokane when a mom dropped off her kids off at day care.

The Spokane County Sheriff's Office said a thief, or thieves, target daycares during the morning, waiting for parents to leave their cars running in the parking lot as they take their kids inside. Officials said it's happened four times in three months.

HERE'S THE LATEST PRESS RELEASE FROM SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE:

After dropping her child off at a daycare located near the 6400 block of North Wall Street, the victim walked outside to find her vehicle had been stolen. The victim left her vehicle running while she took her child inside.

The victim immediately called 911 and Sheriff's Deputies, along with Officers from Spokane Police Department, quickly set up containment in the area. A few minutes later the vehicle was located in an alley between Francis and Decatur unoccupied. The victim's purse, which had been sitting on the front passenger seat, was also missing.
