Someone with a penchant for flat-screen televisions and stereo equipment is targeting eastern Washington motorhome dealers, The Spokesman Review reported.
Thousands of dollars worth of TVs and stereos have been stolen from vehicles and trailers at lots from Spokane Valley to Post Falls, police announced this week.
Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for tips that help arrest a suspect.
According to a news release, victim businesses include RVs Northwest, 18919 E. Broadway, which was struck during the night of Sept. 29, and R&R RVs at 23203 E. Knox during the night of Sept. 28. Blue Crick RV at 13915 W. Highway 2 in Airway Heights has been hit, as well as Blue Dog RV at 4490 N. Riverbend in Post Falls, Idaho.
Blue Dog was hit twice (Sept. 29 and Oct. 1) and lost 12 flat screens in the second burglary.
Post Falls police believe the thieves damaged cabinetry and cut wires connecting the TV walls. Investigators believe channel locks were used to break door locks.
Anyone with information on the burglaries is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS or submit tips online. Tipsters don’t have to leave their name to collect a reward but should leave a code name or number.
