Don’t Be Easy Target For Intruders

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

Spokane Police say a man broke into a home late Wednesday morning through a back door and threatened the man who lived there with a gun. It happened near the intersection of Crestline and Wabash in Northeast Spokane. SPD says the man tried to fight the intruder until he felt a gun to his head. The intruder stole a small safe and then took off.

Spokane Police don’t think this robbery was random, but the KHQ Crime Trackers warn the incident is a reminder to take certain precautions to avoid such incidents. First, they remind people to keep their doors locked, even if they are home. If a robber can’t come into your home with the turn of a knob, often times they’ll move on. Also, keep you garage door down. Even if you are home and working in the yard, it is important to keep the garage closed. Eliminate easy access into your home. Finally, if an intruder does make his way into your house, comply. Don’t try to fight them off. Law enforcement continually reminds people that possessions and belongings can be replaced, but lives can’t be replaced.

These reminders are especially important this time of year as people go in and out of their homes more frequently because of nice weather. Remember to take the necessary precautions to keep yourself from becoming an easy target for intruders.
