PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE DEPT: On November 20th, 2013, Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy Tom Walker investigated a residential burglary near 3700 S. Ridgeview in Spokane Valley. 

Deputy Walker contacted the 74-year-old homeowner who said sometime during the early morning hours, his house was burglarized. The victim said the suspect(s) entered through an unlocked door that leads into his garage. 

He said the suspect(s) stole a $500.00 Nexstar G.T. telescope as well as his 2007 Hyundai Elantra, WA license DP00265. The victim said he found his garage door open and still attached to the opening mechanism. He said he did not hear the door open because his bedroom is on the opposite side of the residence.
