Man gets 21 months for robbing store

A man who robbed the convenience store he frequented in downtown Spokane was sentenced recently to 21 months in prison.

Zachariah T. Puckett, 28, had been out of jail on $5,000 bond since just after he pleaded guilty to second-degree robbery in March. He was booked back in Friday to await transport to prison.

A sweatshirt worn during the robbery at Divine food mart and gas station, 1428 W. 2nd Ave., helped identify Puckett, who was armed with a knife, after police spotted his girlfriend wearing it at their apartment complex at 151 S. Adams St.

Puckett and his girlfriend were regular customers at the store. (Disclaimer: So am I.)
