Easy Access To Residence

Posted 10/1/2013 3:32 PM by MDGREGORY

Yesterday, September 30th, 2013, Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy David Westlake investigated a residential burglary in the area of 2025 W. Gail Jean Lane. The homeowner told Deputy Westlake that sometime between Thursday, September 26th, and yesterday, his residence was broken into.

The victim said the suspect(s) broke into his truck and gained access into his residence using his garage door opener. Like many homeowners, the victim uses his garage door opener as the key to his residence. The garage door leading into his residence was unlocked allowing instant access into his home. Fortunately only two bicycles were taken from inside the garage.

This is a reminder for citizens to not leave their garage door opener in plain view. If at all possible keep it with you or even locked in your trunk. As always, if you witness suspicious activity in your neighborhood please call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
