Midday burglary on Eight Avenue on Friday

A house on Eight was broken into Friday just a bit after noon. A neighbor saw what was happening and called police who responded quickly but not in time to apprehend the thieves. The same neighbor did take a picture of the suspect's truck [F-150 pick up, light blue, older model, tinted windows, Idaho License Plate] and saw two males, one with a red beard, taking things from the house.
The burglars fled the scene in a hurry, leaving behind a pile of things at the front door they obviously had intended to take. They did a fair amount of damage and got away with computers, electronic equipment and personal I.D. documents. The intruders gained access by breaking the glass in the front door.
I have noticed several reports of attempted access or actual theft by kicking in front doors/windows in our larger community area over the past few months.

It reminds me to take some precautions that are easy to overlook:
Take pictures of everything in your home and all personal documents. Give one copy of the pictures to a trusted friend or relative to keep for you.
If possible, keep S.S. Cards and passports in a safe or safe deposit box.
Get to know your immediate neighbors and DO LOOK OUT FOR EACH OTHER. More active Block Watch groups are always needed.
It is never your fault if you are robbed, and none of us can be totally secured these days, but let's join together as a community to increase safety and prevent crime whenever and wherever possible

About this blog

Welcome to the South Perry neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last four years I’ve lived on South Perry Street.

I love the neighborhood so when time came to pick an area for The Spokesman-Review’s first neighborhood blog, the choice was simple: South Perry is where it’s at.
