KXLY 4'S AARON LUNA WAS THERE AS DETECTIVES MADE ARRESTS
AND EXECUTED SEARCH WARRANTS.
In all detectives detained nine people, two at this
home seven at another down the block.
The owner of this home could possibly be facing first
degree assault charges in connection to the abuse
of a 12-year-old.
A WEEK LONG BURGLARY INVESTIGATION BY SPOKANE VALLEY
POLICE LEAD DETECTIVES TO TWO HOMES...WHERE THEY
CAUGHT ONE SUSPECT RED HANDED.
One of the folks that we have detained was actually
running out the back door with a handfull of stolen
DEPUTIES SAY THE TWO HOMES WERE CONNECTED TO MULTIPLE
BURGLARIES IN THE SPOKANE VALLEY.
DURING THE RAID POLICE SEIZED THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
IN STOLEN PROPERTY.
This is their little criminal enterprise and all they
do is keep victimizing nice people like the people
in this neighborhood,
PROPERTY WHICH THEY ALREADY STARTED RETURNING TO BURGLARY
VICTIMS LIKE STEPHEN WHITACRE.
They did a lot of damage getting into the house and
you really feel violated,
WHITACRE WASN'T THE ONLY ONE COLLECTING STOLEN PROPERTY
AND WON'T BE THE LAST.
They have done fantastic job of tracking these guys
down and starting the recovery process,
DETECTIVES ALSO DISCOVERED A 12-YEAR-OLD BOY INSIDE
THE NORTH CALVIN HOME WITH SIGNS OF ABUSE.
THEY SAY THE BOYS FATHER WOULD BRING HIM TO THE HOME
FROM NORTH IDAHO FOR 'DISCPLINE' FROM THE HOMES RESIDENT.
There's evidence that he phisically assaulted this
boy multiple times,
THAT MAN COULD NOW FACE ABUSE CHARGES ALONG WITH BURGLARY
THE BOYS FATHER COULD ALSO BE FACING CHARGES.
Victims of property crime already starting to show
up at this home and claim some of their stolen property.
it looks like there will be plenty more down the road.
