Reward offered for occupied residential burglary

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - On Tuesday at about 5:00 p.m., Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputy Dave Bratton responded to the area of 200 E. Elcliff to an occupied residential burglary. The 13-year-old complainant called 911 and said she and her sister were hiding in their basement crawl space because they heard someone break in through the front door.

Deputy Bratton contacted the 13-year-old female and her 9-year-old sister. They said they heard knocking on the door and looked outside. They saw a small shiny gray car in the driveway and saw two males in the vehicle. The 13-year-old described the driver as a white male, wearing a blue t-shirt, bald with a medium build. She said the passenger was also a white male, 20-30 years old wearing a black t-shirt and appeared skinny.

The 13-year-old said the passenger walked up to the door, knocked and looked through the window. She said he walked back to the car and talked to the driver. She said both suspects walked towards the front door and she and her sister ran downstairs and hid in the crawl space like their parents had taught them to do. The girls said they heard the front door break and heard the suspects walk upstairs.

Deputy Bratton saw that the front door frame of the residence had been forced open. Several other deputies, as well as Air-1, had arrived in the area and were not able to locate the suspect vehicle. Deputies checked the residence and confirmed the suspects had left. The girl’s mother arrived at the residence and did not notice anything missing. At this time there is no further suspect information.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for anyone providing information leading to an arrest in this incident. Persons with information should call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-800-222-TIPS, or should forward the tip via the Internet website www.crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org.
