The Eastern Washington State Veterans Cemetery, under construction at 21702 W. Espanola Road, was burglarized over the weekend.
Sgt. Dave Reagan of the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office said two Patron-brand electric heaters were stolen from inside the building at the site.
Construction workers closed the site on Dec. 11 around 4 p.m. When they returned Monday they noticed a plywood cover on the north side of the building had been nailed into place, rather than the screws originally used to hold it in place. The two heaters, valued at $700 each, were taken from inside the building.
Anyone with information about this theft should call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
