Police look for serial loan store robber

A masked gunman robbed two Spokane payday loan centers Thursday, and police suspect the same man who targeted one of the same stores Jan. 20.

A man with a handgun and wearing a black ski mask and dark clothing robbed Check into Cash at 555 E. Francis Ave. about 5:30 p.m., Thursday, four hours after he robbed Check into Cash at 923 N. Division St., according to police. The Francis Avenue store was also robbed by a gunman in a black ski last week.

The suspect in the three robberies is described as in his 20s, white, 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-7 and 175 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call (509) 242-TIPS.
