Here's a news release from Sgt. Dave Reagan:
A thief broke into a Spokane Valley church sometime between Wednesday night and 5 p.m. Saturday and stole several thousand dollars worth of electronic equipment.
The pastor at Valley Landmark Mission, 9021 E. Boone, told Officer Mark Benner that the congregation held a service Wednesday night and that all of the stolen property was stored in the electronic storage room that night.
When a cleaning crew arrived about 5 p.m. Saturday, they discovered the room pillaged and several items missing. The stolen property included a Canon HD camcorder, an Acer laptop computer and two Phillips portable DVD players.
Benner found that the point of entry appeared to be a narrow window. Anyone with information regarding the break-in is encouraged to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
