Copper Wire/Pipe Stolen from Spokane Valley Storage Building

Posted 5/22/2012 10:56 AM by MDGREGORY

On Monday, May 21st, Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy M. Benner responded to a commercial burglary call near the area of 4600 E. Sprague Avenue. Deputy Benner contacted the building manager who told him the building was used as a trailer storage area. The manager told Deputy Benner he was in the building on Saturday, May 19th, and noticed some insulation on the floor but thought it was due to the old age of the building. When he returned on Monday, May 21st, he observed insulation lying on the ground and electrical wire missing from the ceiling.

The manager checked the building and noticed all the copper wiring inside the walls and ceiling of the business had been stolen. The suspect(s) took all the copper pipe in the business as well. The manager estimated the cost of repairs and replacement of stolen copper near $40,000.00.

Anyone with information about this Commercial Burglary is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
