Safe stolen from home
A Grand Coulee man who was in a Spokane hospital lost his safe containing from $5,000 to $8,000, plus coins and other money when an unknown person entered his home on Martin Road sometime from Aug. 1-6, a police report stated.
Dean Stucker, former owner of Stuck’s Tavern, was in a Spokane hospital at the time of the burglary.
Police stated that entry was likely gained through an unlocked window on the north side of the residence. This gave the intruder access to an enclosed porch area where a hammer was used to smash a window in a door that led to the interior of the house.
The loss also included $500-$600 cash that was in a small lock box.
The burglar took a small 2’ by 2’ safe that held the $5,000 to $8,000.
The police report stated that a .410 shotgun was taken by police for safe keeping.
