Attempting to Identify these Females
Spokane Valley Major Crimes Detectives are attempting to identify the two females in these pictures. One of the females told a store employee she would stab her in the neck if she said anything during the theft.
On April 9, 2018 at approximately 1:20 p.m., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to a reported robbery at a Walmart located at 5025 E. Sprague in Spokane Valley.
A loss prevention employee said he observed the two females at a self-scan register. They appeared to scan one item and then placed several in the shopping bags. The register signaled that items had not been scanned properly and locked, requiring a clerk’s attention. When the females were told the items did not scan properly, one of the females stated she had more shopping to do. She removed the items from the bag and placed them back in the shopping cart.
One female pushed the cart down the aisle while the second exited the store and returned to their vehicle.
A second employee watched the female with the cart walk up to another check stand and place the items from her cart into plastic shopping bags. The employee planned to approach the female but the female looked at her and said something to the effect of “If you say anything, I will stab you in the neck.” Fearing for her safety, the employee did not approach the female suspect who walked out of the store with the stolen merchandise.
The females arrived in a silver 4-door car, possibly an early 2000s Chevrolet Malibu.
If you can help identify the females in these photos or you can provide any information regarding this investigation, you are urged to contact Detective Darin Staley at 509-477-2573, reference #10046382.
