Man arrested for two local robberies
Spokane Police arrested Daniel Drake, 39, on charges of robbing two businesses this week.
Drake allegedly robbed a coffee stand, the Java Hut, on 540 E Francis on Tuesday, and the North Nevada Albertsons on Wednesday. In both cases, Drake allegedly indicated he had a weapon and would hurt the employees if they didn’t give him money.
Police arrested Drake at the Royal Scot Motel and booked him into jail on two counts of first-degree robbery Thursday. He is scheduled to appear before Judge James Triplet this afternoon.
