A cash reward is being offered for information involving a robbery of a Krispy Kreme doughnut shop Friday in Spokane Valley.

Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest is offering up to $1,000 for the information, according to a news release from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded to the reported robbery at about 11 p.m. Friday at the Krispy Kreme, 15401 E. Indiana Ave. The suspect, dressed in all black with a face mask on, reportedly pointed a handgun at employees and demanded money from the register. He is described as a white male between 5-foot-11 and 6-foot-1 and 180 to 200 pounds.

According to the release, a witness may have spotted the robber at Sullivan Park and the Spokane Pedestrian Bridge. The man got into a “beat up” white SUV or pickup with a canopy and sped off, according to the witness. Detectives are not certain if that man was related to the robbery.
