Spokane woman’s car window smashed in MUV Fitness parking lot

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

A Spokane woman says after her car was broken into, she's not getting the help she feels like she deserves.

It happened in the parking lot of the north Spokane MUV fitness at around 6 p.m. Monday.

The woman whose car was broken into thinks there's a solid lead on who did it, but that the window to catch them is quickly closing.

“It's frustrating because when you call 911 and you call Crime Check you expect someone to do something,” said Laura, who didn’t want to identify her last name. “But nothing's done.”

The last 24 hours have been some of the most frustrating of Laura’s life.

She says it all started after an evening workout at the gym.

“I walked outside and my side window was all smashed in on my drivers' side,” said Laura. “They stole my purse, my ID, my reading glasses, my flip cell phone.”

So Laura did what most people do. She filed a police report and waited.

“I can guarantee if this happened to one of them [police] they wouldn't have got treated the way I got treated,” said Laura who has bank records of the suspect using her credit card at the north Spokane Home Depot and the Super Store convenience store on the 900 block of E. Francis Ave.

Laura says there's surveillance video of the person responsible, and fingerprints on the back seat of the car.

“It would take two minutes to come out and fingerprint this car,” said Laura. “I would drive to them if I could but I can't get anywhere.”

Laura believes the timing is crucial to this investigation, but the clock continues to run, leaving her wondering if justice will ever be served.
