Burglar rams business, steals tools

From staff reports

A burglar apparently used a vehicle to smash in the roll up door at a Spokane Valley electrical firm and then made off with numerous power and hand tools, said Spokane Valley Police spokesman Sgt. Dave Reagan.

An employee at Precision Electrical Systems, 2205 N. Woodruff Road, told Officer Aaron Childress that the break-in occurred sometime between 7 p.m. Monday and 7 a.m. Tuesday.

After ramming his way through the door, the suspect entered an unlocked work truck inside the business and ransacked it of tools. The employee was unable to provide any potential suspects in the crime. Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call the Spokane Valley Police at 242-TIPS.
