Deer Park pharmacy robbed twice this month


A Deer Park pharmacy was robbed today for the second time this month.

A man, who vaguely resembled the person who robbed the pharmacy Dec. 5, walked into the Medicine Shoppe at 11 E. H Street about 4 p.m. and handed employees a note demanding pain medication, said Sgt. Dave Reagan, Spokane County Sheriff’s spokesman. He indicated he was armed with a gun, though one was not displayed.

He ran from the pharmacy behind the nearby Salt Dog Eatery, just as the robber did earlier in the month, Reagan said. In this robbery, an employee followed the man, who ran into a trailer park at S. 600 Main Street.

He is described as a white male in his early 20s, who was 5’8” tall and thin. He had blond hair, blue eyes and a two-day growth of beard. He wore a black beanie, a tan fleece jacket, blue cargo pants and black leather gloves.

He fled with an undisclosed amount of prescription pain medications and took the note he handed to employees with him. No one was injured during the robbery.

Anyone with information regarding either armed robbery should call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
