After six months of investigations, Spokane County Sheriff's Deputies believe they have found the man responsible for a string of gym thefts.
From keys, wallets, and even firearms, whatever was in sight, officials believe the suspect didn't hesitate to steal it.
South Hill Gold's Gym employee Tyler Barranger said Ilya Glushchenko, 24, told front desk employees he needed to use the restroom.
That's when he went into the locker room and allegedly stole valuables.
Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy Craig Chamberlin said he mostly targeted the South Hill, but he also stole from gyms in North Spokane, Spokane Valley and Liberty Lake. Some locks where cut, but most items were in unsecured lockers. There were a total of 19 different victims.
"Some of the victims he would actually take their keys, walk around the parking lot with the key fob with the alarm, trying to figure out car it belonged to and getting into those vehicles," Chamberlin said.
