Man reports theft of cash, drugs

Spokane Police are investigating the theft of large amounts of cash and drugs from a home in the 4700 block of North ‘A’ Street last month.

The homeowner reported that someone had broken into his home, ripped open the side of a gun safe and stole $89,000 in cash and between 16 and 19 full bottles of Hydrocodone, according to court documents. He told police that several people knew about the contents of his safe.

Police have identified a suspect in the theft, who had multiple cuts on his hands and arms, according to court documents. The cuts are thought to have been caused by the jagged edges of the ripped metal of the safe. No charges have been filed in the case.
