Cops: Girlfriend’s hoodie reveals robber

A 28-year-old man accused of robbing a downtown Spokane convenience store remains in jail on $75,000 bond after appearing in Superior Court today.

Zachariah T. Puckett was armed with a 12-inch kitchen knife when threatened a clerk at Divine food mart and gas station, 1428 W. 2nd Ave., and stole more than $200, according to Spokane police.

Puckett was wearing a sweatshirt that zipped all the way to the top of the hood with two eyes pictured on the front of the hood.

Police found Puckett’s girlfriend wearing the same sweatshirt a short while later at 151 S. Adams Street, then saw a pile of cash “laying on the bed from the open front door,” according to a probable cause affidavit.

The woman allowed police to search the apartment. They found Puckett in the laundry room.
He and his girlfriend were regular customers at the store. (Disclaimer: So am I.)

Puckett already had a warrant out for his arrest for failing to show up for a court hearing related to a second-degree theft case. Now he’s in jail on a first-degree robbery charge, too.
