Spokane police are searching for two men wanted in relation to several recent home burglaries.
Trevor J. Haugen, 23, and Zachory J. Davis, 21, were arrested last week but Davis was released on his own recognizance and Haugen was released due to a clerical error within the prosecutor’s office, a news release from the Spokane Police Department said.
The police received several reports of men knocking on doors under the guise of soliciting yard work, the release said. After receiving tips and conducting surveillance, police pulled Haugen and Davis over and searched their home, on the 1300 block of E. Princeton Avenue, and their car.
Police found jewelry, coins and other items and began trying to match unsolved burglaries with property recovered from the search warrant. Detectives are now asking for the public’s assistance in identifying items that they have not been able to link to previously reported burglaries. The property will be displayed on the Spokane Police Department’s Facebook page.
Detectives ask that if you see any of your own belongings on the Facebook page, that you make a supplemental report using your original report number and forward it to the attention of Detective Madsen in the Targeted Crimes Unit.
Since the time of the arrests, detectives have matched some of the jewelry located during the search warrant to another burglary, the release said.
The house on Princeton is one of several ‘problem houses’ the police have investigated recently, the release said.
