Police arrest suspect in Walgreens robbery

By The Spokesman-Review

Tips based on surveillance photos from a June 7 robbery at the South Hill Walgreens led to the arrest of a suspect Friday.

Terran D. Schatz, 23, is the third man in his 20s booked into Spokane County Jail for robbing the pharmacy in the last several months.

Schatz is accused of robbing the store of OxyContin in the first successful robbery of the narcotic in Spokane in a couple months.

He was arrested Friday night after a police officer contacted him in a car at Liberty Lake park and recognized his name.

Adam J. Dally, 25, was arrested in April for a December robbery at the same store.

Richard T. Ludvik, 23, is also charged with robbing the store in January.

Schatz’s criminal record includes convictions for possession of a controlled substance and reckless endangerment.

Spokane County Superior Court Judge Harold Clarke set his bail at $125,000 today.
