Can You Help Identifying this Male Robbery Suspect?
Spokane County Major Crime Detectives are attempting to identify the male in these surveillance photos. He is suspected of striking a loss prevention officer in the face while attempting to steal alcohol.
In July of this year the male in these surveillance photos, obtained from Safeway located at 902 W. Francis, walked into the store and attempted to conceal a large bottle of rum inside his coat. As he did, he dropped the bottle causing it to break on the ground. He grabbed a second bottle and concealed it inside his coat as he walked toward the front doors. The male walked past all of the cash registers without attempting to pay, grabbed his Razor scooter that he left at the front entrance, and walked out the front door.
As the loss prevention officer tried to stop the suspect, he turned around and hit the loss prevention office in the face while still holding on to the scooter with the same hand. The suspect fled east from the store on his scooter.
Arriving Deputies checked the area but were unable to locate the male.
The loss prevention officer received minor injuries.
The suspect was described as a black male, 40-45 years old, 5’08-6’00”, 200-220 lbs, with black hair.
Anyone who can help identify this male, or knows of his location, is urged to call Detective Mike Drapeau at 509-477-6921, reference #10095263.
