Two arrested in connection with Spokane robberies
Spokane police have made two arrests in connection with a string of robberies that struck Spokane earlier this summer.
Andrew W. Carr, 27, and Marshall M. Barkdull, 27, are in custody on suspicion of the robberies of Pizza Rita on 5511 N. Wall St. on May 22 and Herbal Connections on May 27, according to Spokane police.
In both cases, the robbers were armed. Barkdull drove the getaway car in both cases, according to a police report.
Carr was previously arrested on suspicion of robbing a Hot Toddy’s coffee stand in June. Police said Carr assaulted the barista, pepper spraying her, then stealing her car. Carr was already in jail for that robbery.
Barkdull has two misdemeanor charges of negligent driving.
Barkdull made his first appearance in Superior Court on Monday. Superior Court Judge James Triplet set his bond at $35,000. Carr is tentatively scheduled to appear Tuesday.
