Hayden grocery store robbed at gunpoint

SATURDAY, OCT. 17, 2009, 10:55 P.M.

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who robbed a Hayden grocery store at gunpoint early Saturday morning.

The suspect walked into the Super One Foods at 240 W. Hayden Ave., about 2:15 a.m., brandished a black semi-automatic handgun and demanded an employee put money into a bag. He left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The man was white, in his 20s, and was wearing a mask, a blue baseball cap and blue jeans.

It is unclear if the robbery was related to another holdup Friday night at the Piggies Deli and Market in Coeur d’Alene.

At Piggies, an armed man robbed customers and clerks in the store at 2001 E. Sherman Ave., the sheriff’s office said. Coeur d’Alene Police are investigating.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office at (208) 446-1300.
