Burglar Mistakes Garage For Safeway

Posted 8/29/2013 11:34 AM by CKCHAMBERLIN

On Wednesday, August 28th, 2013, Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy G. Snyder responded to the 15200 block of East 22nd Ct. on a residential burglary call. Deputy Snyder contacted the homeowner who told him he had been outside and went into his residence for a moment. He said when he came back out into his garage he found a man standing next to his refrigerator inside his garage. The homeowner asked the man, who he said was about 6', blonde hair and a light build, what he was doing. He told the homeowner he was looking for Safeway.

The homeowner politely told the suspect there was not a Safeway inside his garage. The suspect walked to a white Toyota truck that he had backed into the homeowner's driveway and fled the scene. The homeowner followed the vehicle and wrote down the license plate number. He last saw the truck driving west on Sprague from Sullivan. Deputy Snyder checked the license plate and it returned stolen.

Anyone with information possibly identifying this suspect is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
