Convenience store robbieries

On the heels of last week’s bank robbery are two convenience store robberies, the most recent this morning. An armed man entered the Zip Trip at 15504 E. Fourth at about 2:30 a.m. today. The clerk told police that the man brandished a black pistol and demanded cash from the till. He ran south toward an apartment complex. A K9 team tracked the robber to the complex parking lot before losing the scent, said police spokesman Sgt. Dave Reagan.

He was described as a white male in his early 20’s, about 6’ 01” tall and 170 pounds. He was wearing a black ski mask, black gloves, black pants and shoes and a black “puffy” coat over a white shirt.

The other robbery was at the Holiday Gas Station at 2303 N. Argonne just after 3 a.m. Saturday. The clerk reported seeing a black semi-automatic pistol. The robber in this case was described as a thin white male in his late teens or early 20’s. He was wearing dark pants and a white t-shirt as well as a ski mask and gloves. He left heading north on foot.

Anyone with information on the two robberies is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.

Bank robbery update

No arrest has been made in yesterday’s bank robbery. A K9 team was unable to track the suspect and people in a home that drew police’s attention for a time turned out to be uninvolved, according to police spokesman Sgt. Dave Reagan.

The robber got away with an undisclosed amount of cash, which was placed into a green and blue bag. Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Crime Check at 456-2233.

In other police news, detectives pursuing leads in a counterfeiting investigation seized drugs, guns and cash from a home in an undisclosed location in Spokane Valley yesterday. When detectives arrived at the home they smelled the odor of marijuana and the residents gave them permission to search the home, Reagan said.

Police found two pounds of harvested marijuana, more than two pounds of psilocybin mushrooms, a small amount of ecstacy, a 12 gauge shotgun, a stolen 9mm pistol and $5,000 in cash. No additional details on the identity of the residents is being released at this time.

Update: Crimes Stoppers of the Inland Northwest is now offering a cash reward for information that solves yesterday’s bank robbery. Anyone with information can call (800) 222-TIPS or visit the web site. Tipsters do not need to identify themselves.
