SPOKANE VALLEY -- Spokane Valley police are searching for three burglary suspects after a woman returned home to find them in her home.

That search prompted a lockdown of nearby Adams Elementary in Spokane Valley, but that lockdown has now been lifted.

We have confirmed this is the home of Ernie Creach.  He is one of Scott Creach's sons.

Ernie's wife, Laura Creach, returned home with her two young children to find the three burglary suspects inside her home.  They had apparently kicked in the back door.  Once Laura entered, the three suspects took off.  They stole a 22-caliber pistol and a loaded magazine.

The Creach family made headlines this summer when a Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy shot and killed Scott Creach.  The shooting happened in the parking lot of the family business, The Plant Farm.

Authorities are still searching for those three suspect in the area.  The Sheriff's Office helicopter is also searching by air.
