Liberty Lake RV dealerships report more problems

More problems were reported at RV dealerships in Liberty Lake the week of Sept. 2-8 after a summer of thefts and vandalism.

The Liberty Lake Police Department responded twice to the 19000 block of East Cataldo Avenue on Sept. 2. Shortly after noon a business reported that someone had broken into an RV in a secured location and there was blood inside. There were no signs that anyone had forced their way inside the RV, said police Chief Brian Asmus.

Later that day, a business called to report a woman inside an RV. An officer determined that the woman thought the RV was for sale, but it was not, said Asmus. The officer could find no evidence of criminal intent and the woman was allowed to leave, Asmus said.
