A woman robbed a bank inside a Spokane grocery store on Wednesday. She left with an undisclosed amount of cash after threatening a teller at Banner Bank inside Safeway at Hamilton Street and Mission Avenue about 1:25 p.m., police said. The robber is described as white, age 45 to 50, 5-foot-5 and heavy-set with red hair and sunglasses. She fled out the north door of the store. Police converged on the area but didn’t locate a suspect. The same branch was robbed in February. Douglas E. Labish, already convicted of three bank robberies in 2002, is set to enter a plea for that robbery on July 8. Anyone with information on Wednesday’s robbery is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
