Thieves stealing garage door remotes in Spokane Valley

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -

There aren’t a whole lot of things more annoying than waking up in the morning and realizing your car’s been broken into. But the thought of the crook returning is even worse.

That’s what’s been happening in a Spokane Valley neighborhood.

In the last week, thieves have broken into vehicles in the area west of Central Valley High School.

The crooks have stolen garage door remotes, leaving homeowners on edge.

If this has happened to you, there is a very simple thing you can do to keep your home secure: Reset your garage door opener.

Simply locate the antenna on the device, hold down the black button located above the antenna and a light will start blinking. Once the light stops blinking, the remote won’t work anymore.

Once you buy a new one, resetting the remote is just as simple. Press the black button on the garage opener again, and then click the remote three times. You should be able to open your garage door using your new remote.
