Spokane woman devastated after thief steals rosary

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

One Spokane woman is dealing with a car break in and if you’ve been a victim, you know it can be a frustrating process.

But for Deborah Davis, this one is particularly devastating because the criminals took only one item, and it’s one that she can never replace.

It’s a rosary she got in 2009 on a trip to Germany at Neuschwanstein Castle when she went to visit a friend who was deployed there. 

Since that trip, Deborah Davis has kept it in her car. But that morning on June 15, she noticed her passenger side window was broken and glass was everywhere. That’s when she discovered the rosary was gone.

“It was just like a punch in the stomach. I immediately started to cry and I've been crying a lot since then,” she says.

Deborah suffers from depression and she took that rosary to all her appointments.

“It brings me a lot of peace and just holding it in my hand just kind of helped ease the tension,” she says.

Deborah wants the rosary back, but if she doesn't get it back, she hopes whoever took it won’t do this to anyone else.

If you have any information or if you’ve seen something that looks like the rosary, call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
