CHAS Valley clinic robbed

Mon., June 17, 2013, 11:22 a.m.

The Spokane Valley CHAS clinic at 924 S. Pines Road was robbed this morning, the Spokane County Sheriff’s office said.

Deputy Craig Chamberlin said a man wearing a hoodie and a surgical mask from the clinic’s waiting room approached the pharmacy around 10 a.m. and showed a gun. He passed an employee a note demanding narcotics.

Chamberlin said he escaped with an undisclosed kind and amount of drugs. A police dog was brought in for the search but the man likely fled in a vehicle, Chamberlin said.

No one was injured.

The clinic moved a few appointments due to the robbery but was reopened early in the afternoon.

The suspect is described as white, in his 20s, with short brown hair and wearing a hoodie.

Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest and RxPatrol are offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-800-222-TIPS or go to www.crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org.
