Sketch shows pharmacy robbery suspect

Detectives today released a sketch of a possible suspect in two gunpoint robberies at a Deer Park pharmacy.

 The first robbery at the Medicine Shoppe pharmacy, 11 E. H St., occurred Dec. 5 about 4:40 p.m. when a man demanded OxyContin and displayed a silver pistol that was in his waistband.

The pharmacy was robbed again Dec. 30 about 4 p.m. by a man who claimed he was armed with a gun but never displayed one.

The robber in both cases is described as a white man in his early 20s, 5-foot-4 to 5-foot-6 and thin, according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.

Anyone with information on the robberies or the robber's identity is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
