Robber steals cash from Safeway bank

A man robbed a bank inside an Spokane grocery store Monday. About 5:26 p.m., the robber entered a Banner Bank branch inside the Safeway store at 933 E. Mission Ave., police say. He handed the teller a note demanding cash; it said he had a gun although no weapon was displayed, said Spokane police Officer Brian Eckersley. He’s described as 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-8 and wore a dark, puffy Carhartt jacket, light-colored stocking cap and wire-rimmed glasses. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
