Spokane police are searching for two men suspected of burglarizing homes after knocking on doors under the guise of soliciting yard work.
Trevor J. Haugen, 23, and Zachory J. Davis, 21, were first arrested last week, but Davis was released on his own recognizance and Haugen was released due to a clerical error at the prosecutor’s office, according to a Spokane Police Department news release.
After receiving tips and conducting surveillance, police pulled Haugen and Davis over and searched their home, on the 1300 block of East 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 assistance identifying items they have not been able to link to previously reported burglaries. The property will be displayed on the Spokane Police Department’s Facebook page, and detectives ask that anyone spotting their belongings make a report.
