Burglars Steal Copper From Home

SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. -
Spokane County Sheriff's Department Press Release:
 
On Tuesday, April 3rd, Sheriff's Deputies investigated a residential burglary near the area of 8700 N. Country Homes Blvd.  The complainant told deputies he was a neighbor and parked his vehicle in the victim residence garage.  The neighbor watches over the residence for the executor of the home. The neighbor said he left for work at about 5:00 a.m. and everything appeared to be normal. When he returned home around 4:00 p.m. the garage door would not open. The neighbor said he looked inside the garage window and saw several items piled up on the garage floor. 
 
The executor of the estate responded to the home and found the residence had been broken into.  Deputies checked the home and verified forced entry had been made into the residence.  The house was empty for the most part but the burglars focused their attention on copper inside the house.  Copper pipe had been torn out of the laundry room and bathroom walls.  The suspects also stole copper pipe from the crawl space of the residence and the ceiling in the basement.  There was extensive damage to drywall inside the residence where the copper pipe was taken from.
 
A neighbor to the victim residence said that at about 7:00 a.m. he was driving past the residence and saw two males on opposite sides of the street.  He said both were wearing hoodies and were carrying large garbage bags, which he thought was odd.  He said he turned onto Weipert Road and saw an older gray Ford van parked on the street.  He said he had never seen the van in the area prior to that.  The first three digits on the license plate were possibly 730.  Anyone with any information on this case is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
