Victims sought in Valley burglaries

Spokane County Sheriff's detectives are looking for victims of unreported burglaries in the Spokane Valley area that may be connected to a trio of suspects arrested last week.

Victims of burglaries between June 21 and Aug. 1 are asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233, the sheriff's office said today.

Marina Florianovich, 24, Vyacheslav Znovets, 20, and Michael Mendez, 20, are accused of burglaries that occurred mostly in the area south of East Sprague Avenue. They drove a black 1997 BMW with blue rims in nearly every burglary, most of which occurred during the day.

Valley property crimes detectives arrested the suspects while searching homes in the 3500 block of South Woodward Road and the 100 block of North Walnut Road last Thursday.

Detectives located several thousands of dollars worth of jewelry stolen in the burglaries. Among the stolen items believed to be connected to the suspects is a Michael Jordan rookie card valued at $2,500, according to court documents.

U.S. attorney helped ID burglary suspect

An assistant U.S. attorney and appointee for a federal judgeship helped identify a suspect in a string of South Hill burglaries by tracking his wife’s stolen coffee shop card.

Tom Rice, who is awaiting congressional confirmation to replace former U.S. District Judge Robert Whaley, was in bed when Nathan Daniel Moore, 30, (pictured) allegedly burglarized his home Nov. 23.

His wife, Heather Rice, that morning noticed her purse and wallet missing, which contained a Starbucks debit card.
