Crime Stoppers features unsolved crimes when a detective has exhausted his leads in a case and feels that information from an anonymous source would reinvigorate his investigation.

Fugitives are wanted criminal suspects who are avoiding capture, and that makes them inherently dangerous.  Call Crime Stoppers immediately if you know of their whereabouts, but take no action to contact the suspects yourself.  You can also submit a WebTip online with the link above.

June 17, 2014

On June 9th, 2014, at 12:45 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Deputy Jay Bailey responded to an occupied residential burglary call near the 11500 block of East Mission Road.  Deputy Bailey contacted the 19-year-old victim who said she was studying when she heard someone pounding on the front door.  She said she could only see the male suspect’s baseball hat so she moved to the bathroom and could only see his shoulder.  When the suspect continued pounding louder on the door, the victim ran outside with her dogs and called 911.  A neighbor to the west of the victim’s residence heard the loud pounding and met the victim in her back yard.  The neighbor ran around the front of the victim’s house and saw the front door had been kicked in.  He entered the residence and confronted the male suspect coming out of the master bedroom.  The neighbor said the suspect was stuffing items inside his backpack and told him “someone” was looking for him.  The suspect was described as a white male, mid 40’s, 5’10”, 155-165 lbs, reddish mustache and beard, black baseball cap, black t-shirt with a ? logo on the front, and wearing brown shorts. 

The suspect walked out the front door and the neighbor tried to grab on to his shirt.  The suspect continued east on Mission Road.  The suspect fled north on Wilbur, then east on Nora towards a cul-de-sac and jumped a fence.  The suspect was never located.  The neighbor collected a coin counter the suspect dropped when he jumped the fence.  The victim’s parents arrived at the residence and confirmed multiple collector coins were stolen.  These included approximately 200 “Ike” silver dollars, 1,000 “Benjamin Franklin” silver fifty cent coins (1940-1950’s) and 40 silver quarters (1940-1970’s).
