Spokane Valley thieves caught on camera

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Thieves broke into cars early Tuesday morning in Spokane Valley, and the homeowner caught the incident on camera.

That video was sent to us by a man who lives near 24th and Evergreen. He wants you to see what happened to him - and, hopefully help catch the guys who did it.

Brooks Hunt captured the whole incident on his security cameras and hopes his investment will pay off, and the thieves will be caught.

Hunt says Tuesday morning, a neighbor told him someone had broken into his car. He reviewed his security tape and saw that around 12:40 a.m., two men came to look in his car windows parked in his driveway. Then, they moved to his other vehicle parked on the street, where they broke both windows and stole tools and items hunt recently bought at Home Depot.

Hunt says they appear to be teens, maybe 16 to 18, and driving a 1992 to 1994 Ford Explorer.

Hunt says he's never been broken into before.

"I've caught people prowling the neighborhood so I decided to get security cameras and that now paid off hopefully," said Brooks Hunt.

Hunt says the men also broke into another vehicle in the neighborhood, but the Spokane County Sheriff's Office says so far, they have only received Hunt's report.

The Sheriff's Office says if you're a victim of property crime, report it to law enforcement.
