Husband, Wife Sleeping While Burglarized

Posted 11/21/2013 10:33 AM by CKCHAMBERLIN

Yesterday, November 20th, 2013, Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy Tom Walker investigated a residential burglary near 3700 S. Ridgeview in Spokane Valley. Deputy Walker contacted the 74-year-old homeowner who said sometime during the early morning hours, his house was burglarized. The victim said the suspect(s) entered through an unlocked door that leads into his garage. He said the suspect(s) stole a $500.00 Nexstar G.T. telescope as well as his 2007 Hyundai Elantra, WA license DP00265. The victim said he found his garage door open and still attached to the opening mechanism. He said he did not hear the door open because his bedroom is on the opposite side of the residence.

The victim said the suspect(s) stole his wallet, items from his 73-year-old wife's purse and looked through their dining room. He said the suspect(s) went into the basement and stole two laptop computers as well. He also said the suspect(s) placed the registration, insurance, garage door opener and other personal items neatly inside a box in the garage from his vehicle.
