Spokane police are looking for a second suspect in the recent robbery of a north Spokane espresso stand that's been tied to a suspected toothless burglar.

Shawn Michael Westlie, 44, was arrested after a standoff Friday and charged with multiple counts of first-degree armed robbery for a spree of robberies, including the robbery of Spokane’s Best Espresso, 5226 N. Division St.

But detectives believe a second man, recently seen on video surveillance using a credit card stolen during the robbery, may be involved.

The man pulled into a local 7-Eleven store driving a dark-colored, four-door sedan with a temporary license plate in the back window, police said.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest by calling (800) 222-TIPS or (509) 327-5111, or leave a tip online.
