Sheriff’s office seeking help identifying robber

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who stole narcotics from an Albertson’s pharmacy two weeks ago.

Shortly before 11 a.m. on Feb. 7, a man threw a red re-useable grocery bag on the pharmacy counter and demanded narcotics. The pharmacist complied and the man left the store, located at 12312 N. Hwy. 395, a news release said.

The pharmacist described the man as a dark complected, white or Hispanic male, 5’9”, medium build in his mid-30s with black, collar length hair. His face was heavily pock-marked and he may have tattoos on his neck, the release said.

He was last seen wearing a black, baseball cap with “WSU” on the front, with a large red and white Cougars logo on the left side, a black hooded jacket, black baggie jeans and white shoes.

Anyone who has information or can identify the suspect in the pictures provided is urged to call Major Crimes Detective Jack Rosenthal at (509) 477-3186.
