Tips sought to crack concrete caper

Police are asking the public’s help to identify the thief or thieves who struck a Spokane Valley business last Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

The owner of Clark’s Concrete told Officer Glen Hinckley that someone cut a hole through the south security fence, which is just north of Centennial Middle School at 1303 N. Ella.

Two padlocks were cut from semi-trailers used for storage, and an $800 Subaru generator and $500 pressure washer were stolen.  A pair of grinders also was stolen.

A small flashlight was left at the scene, as well as bolt cutters that appeared to have been broken on the heavier shank of a third padlock.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
