$20,000 Worth of Items Stolen From Spokane County Home

SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - A couple in south Spokane County are a bit unsettled after having thousands of dollars worth of items stolen from their home. Bob Travis came home from work Wednesday evening to find his basement door wide-open and broken glass from the window all over the ground.
 
"It is just that gut wrenching feeling that somebody has been in your house," said Bob Travis, burglary victim. Travis says the thieves took all of his wife's jewelry, electronics like their X-Box and Ipods. They even found his 9mm handgun. "Anything small that they could easily carry out," said Travis. Travis estimates their total loss is worth about $20,000.
 
The Spokane County Sheriff says they've seen a 50% increase in property crimes in unincorporated Spokane County over the last year. Crimes Bob and his wife thought they might have escaped when they moved into their house in south Spokane County less than a year ago.  

"We didn't expect this, neighbors said they've never had any problems in the past and here we are," said Travis. Travis doesn't know if he will ever get the stuff stolen from him back. He now just wants to warn other to keep an eye out.  

"Anybody that sees somebody that shouldn't be in their neighborhood, call it in, the only way we'll catch these people is if somebody is vigilant and keeps an eye out," said Travis.  

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for any information that leads to an arrest. They can be contacted by calling 800-222-TIPS.
