SPOKANE, Wash. -

Spokane Police Detectives are investigating a break-in at the Spokane Property Evidence Facility Parking Lot that happened overnight Friday.

On Saturday morning an officer went to the evidence facility building located on East Alki in Spokane and noticed that the fence surrounding the outdoor parking lot had been damaged. The officer secured the area and made sure the person who broke in was not still in the parking lot. Surveillance video showed the suspect arriving on a bicycle before prowling through several vehicles in the lot.

The outdoor parking area is used to store vehicles involved in a variety of investigations. Detectives are conducting a comprehensive review of the break-in. Police say it's not known what kind of impact the prowling will have on investigations. The man broke into 16 cars in the lot, but never entered the building itself.

Police say the incident is unusual and are already taking steps to make sure it doesn't happen again. The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
