Thieves target cars during early morning workout in north Spokane

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

While a group of 20 people were working out, a pair of thieves were breaking into their cars.

The incident happened at around 5:15 a.m. at the Academy of Sports Performance in north Spokane.

The gym’s owner, Chris Gradoville, says the group was working out with a large garage door open when a trainer noticed a couple of suspicious people circling the parking lot behind the building in a green Honda.

“They said they were going really slow, driving by, just looking at everybody,” said Gradoville. “Then 20 minutes later a client needed to come out to her car to grab something and that’s when she noticed her windows were broken out.”

Gradoville says the thieves snagged a purse, iPad, work clothes, and an emergency kit. He says they also used the victims debit card at the north Spokane Wal-Mart at 6:15 a.m.

“It’s unnerving and frustrating,” said Gradoville. “There were 20 plus people in the building and where they did it, she was parked under a light in our parking lot off Division. They’re getting ruthless with what they’re doing.”

Gradoville says a truck was also targeted during the early morning spree but the thieves were unsuccessful.

He says they are working on getting surveillance video from Wal-Mart and Turning Point Open Bible Church, which is located across the parking lot.
