SPOKANE, Wash. – Spokane County deputies are investigating a theft at the Other Mothers clothing store in north Spokane where thieves allegedly stole an iPhone from an employee which contained irreplacable family photos.
The store posted security video of the suspects — the clip has been viewed more than 17,000 times. Dozens of people on social media have messaged the store, claiming to know who the suspects are.
The woman who lost her phone asked not to be identified. She did have the ‘Find My iPhone’ app enabled on the phone, but said the suspects have yet to turn it on, preventing her from pinpointing an exact location.
“I do have it on a lock to where the second that they do turn it on, it does show that the phone has been stolen,” the woman said. “It’s still sad, I’ve lost it and I’m hoping we can still get it back but at the same time, it’s really overwhelming all the responses from everybody.”
The theft victim said she will not press charges if the phone is returned.
