Homeowners Find Two Intruders Inside Their Spokane County Home

Posted: Updated:
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: On Tuesday, August 7, 2012 just after midnight, Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy C. Johnston responded to the 8500 block of East Red Oak Drive for a residential burglary in progress. The homeowner called 911 and reported there were two unknown male subjects inside his home.
 
Deputy Johnston, along with several Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies and a City of Spokane K9 unit, responded to the residence. Once the homeowner and his wife were safe the officer's searched the residence. However when the homeowner first saw them the two suspects fled the scene prior to deputies arrival.
 
Sheriff's Deputies saw the front door to the residence had been forced open. The homeowner told deputies he was awakened by a loud noise which she thought was a window breaking.  When she looked downstairs she saw two males standing outside the foyer area next to a guest bedroom. 

The homeowner thought they were two white males wearing white tank tops and dark shorts. However it was dark so she was not certain. She said the suspects ran out the front door when they saw her.
 
Persons with information regarding this Residential Burglary should call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-800-222-TIPS, or should forward the tip via the Internet website www.crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org

Tipsters do not have to give their name to collect the cash reward.  Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest is a civilian organization that promotes public safety by paying cash rewards for information that solves crimes.  It is not affiliated with law enforcement.
