Car prowler nets firefighting items

Thu., Aug. 30, 2012

Liberty Lake Police officers had a fairly quiet week from Aug. 21 to 27, with thefts and three arrests for driving with a suspended license topping the week.

Two cars were prowled on North Cavalier on the same night. About $3,000 worth of firefighting equipment was stolen from one car and about $300 in personal items were taken from a car at the house next door. A homeless couple left all their belongings outside the Albertsons while they went inside to make a purchase. When they returned all their items were gone.

Some golf clubs were reported stolen from the Meadowwood Golf Course during the week and Verizon also reported the theft of $4,000 worth of copper wiring from a cell tower. Someone tried to pass a fake prescription at Walgreen’s and officers responded to several domestic violence calls.

During the week officers handed out three citations for failure to show proof of liability insurance, four for speeding and two for use of a cellphone. An additional citation was given for a defective muffler.
