Pharmacy employee pepper sprays would-be robber

Spokane County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a robbery at the Medicine Shoppe in Deer Park this evening. They arrested 24-year-old Aaron Miller on suspicion of robbery and booked him into the Spokane County Jail, according to sheriff’s Spokesman Deputy Craig Chamberlin. The investigation is ongoing; he may face more charges. Deputies responded to the call at 4:28 p.m. and were advised a pharmacy employee sprayed the man in the face with pepper spray before the man fled the scene empty handed, Chamberlin said. Shortly after deputies responded to that call, 911 received a call near the 100 block of South Fir Street in Deer Park. The caller said the suspect, Miller, was at the Fir address. Deputies responded and took Miller into custody. The pharmacy was robbed twice in December, according to news archives.
