Reward offered for tips on vacant home burglary

Burglars stole or damaged all the appliances in a home that’s vacant and for sale near the 4000 block of West Richland Road.
The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office said the home’s property manager discovered the theft of the refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and washer and dryer. The stove and oven had been moved but not stolen, and there was severe water damage to the kitchen floor, according to a news release. The Sheriff’s Office said it’s common for burglars to steal appliances and sell them for scrap.
The burglary was reported on May 6.
Crime Stoppers, a civilian organization that’s not affiliated with law enforcement, is offering a cash reward for information leading to an arrest. Call 1-800-222-TIPS or visit www.crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org. Tipsters don’t have to give their names to collect the reward.
