Occupied Day Time Burglaries Within Two Blocks Of Each Other In Spokane County
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: On Monday, January 21, 2013, at about 2:30 p.m., Spokane County Sheriff's Deputies responded to the 8400 block of East Sunflower Lane to an occupied, residential burglary call. The female homeowner told 911 she heard someone break into her house and that she had armed herself with a handgun and locked herself in a bathroom.
The victim was able to get a look at the suspect who she described as a white male between 6' and 6'2" and very skinny. She said the suspect was wearing a black hoodie style sweatshirt and baggy blue jeans.
When deputies arrived on scene they saw the front door to the residence had been pried open. Deputies were able to track the suspect a short distance from the residence where it appeared the suspect drove off in a vehicle. A neighbor said he saw a black Dodge Ram prowling around the area a couple weeks prior but there was no vehicle description with this incident.
At about 7:00 p.m. that same evening, deputies responded to a second occupied residential burglary call approximately two blocks from the Sunflower Lane burglary near the 6300 block of North Jenson Road. In this incident the homeowner could hear someone breaking her door open then heard someone inside her home. The victim told 911 she was in an upstairs bedroom.
Deputies responded quickly and located the female homeowner safe inside her house. Deputies determined the suspect used some type of tool to pry open the front door. The victim told deputies she could hear the suspect on the main floor of her residence. She the upstairs floor creeks when she walks and thought the suspect must have heard her walking and fled the scene. No items were taken in either incident.
