Bike Stolen from Open Garage by Juvenile Burglar

Posted 5/13/2014 5:10 PM by MDGREGORY

On May 12th, 2014 at approximately 6 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the report of a garage burglary in the 13300 block of East 10th Avenue in Spokane Valley. The victim reported a young juvenile in his teens entered her attached garage and stole her son’s bicycle. She estimated the value at approximately $200.

The victim said she was alerted to the theft by one of her neighbors who witnessed the suspect enter into the victim’s garage, take the bike and ride away pedaling very fast. The witness provided a detailed description of the suspect to deputies.

Deputies began checking the area and located the suspect, approximately a block away, riding a bicycle matching the description they were given. They contacted the suspect, detained him and informed him of his rights.

While talking with the suspect, deputies learned he took the bike from the garage because he needed a way to get around and he didn’t think it was a big deal.

The juvenile was arrested and transported to the Spokane County Juvenile Detention Center where he was booked for felony Residential Burglary.

The bicycle was returned to the owner.
