PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE DEPT: With the warm summer months quickly approaching, it seems like a good time to dust off the portable window air conditioning units, seal them into place and make sure they are working properly.
The Spokane County Sheriff's Office has seen several reports of homeowners having these units taken out of their windows.
These units contain internal copper components that the criminal element is taking to recycle. As always, citizens are encouraged to report suspicious activity they observe to either 911 or Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
Neighborhoods interested in organizing a Neighborhood Block Watch Program in unincorporated Spokane County can contact Deputy Travis Pendell at 509-477-6044. Citizens that live in Spokane Valley can contact Deputy Chris Johnston at 509-477-2592.
