Woman awakens to burglars in home

A homeowner awoke to two strangers inside her home early today, and Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for tips that lead to an arrest.

The woman said she awoke to what she thought was a window breaking just after midnight at her home in the 8500 block of East Red Oak Drive in the Bigelow Gulch area, according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.

She called 911 after she looked downstairs and saw two men standing outside the foyer area next to a guest bedroom. She believed the men were white and wore white tank tops and dark shorts, but it was too dark for her to be sure.

The men ran out the front door when they saw her.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or submit tips online. Tipsters do not have to give their names to receive a reward but should leave a code name or number.
