Burglars wheel away bakery’s safe

Burglars used a wheeled dolly to steal a safe from a Spokane Valley bakery early today or Wednesday, police say.

Employees at Oroweat Bakery, 5424 E. Sprague Ave., believe the theft occurred between 6:45 p.m. Wednesday and 7 a.m. today. An employee arrived at 7:30 a.m. to find the garbage man standing by the unsecured front door.

Police believe the burglars disassembled the front door locket, then rifled desk drawers and files before pulling the “large and heavy” safe from its concrete fixture and rolling it outside on a dolly, according to a news release by Sgt. Dave Reagan. The safe contained cash, business keys and paperwork.

Police also are looking for tips on a burglary that occurred early Wednesday at Spokane Quik Lube,  14704 E. Sprague.

Police responded to an alarm about 1:45 a.m. and found loose change scattered on the floor. The manager said the suspect entered the officer but did not steal cash.

Anyone with information on the burglaries is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
