Police searching for disguised robber who's struck multiple times

Spokane, wash. - Police are searching for a man who robbed the Grocery Outlet in the 7800 block of N. Division Tuesday night.  The man was wearing a disguise comprised of a fake beard and wig.

Police say the man grabbed some cash out of a drawer and fled the scene on foot. The suspect did not display a weapon.

The suspect is black man approximately 30 years old. He has black hair and was wearing black sweat pants and gold sunglasses.

Police believe this same suspect has hit two of "The Cash Stores" in the past few weeks.  The Cash Store located at 5920 north Division, and the store located at 1509 north Pines in Spokane Valley.

As far as being a serial robber, Spokane police officer Brian Eckersley says it's definitely a problem when the suspect hits the same types of places, "Typically they don't stop because once they get away with one and get some money and get away with that chances are you'll see them again, maybe in the same area of town maybe different."

Eckersley says disguises can make it harder for police to track someone down at first but typically a suspect develops a pattern through either their appearance or actions that will tie them to their crimes.

Officer Eckersley says citizens can play an important role in finding criminals,"You look at a bad guy like this committing robberies whose got a fake beard, fake wig, wearing dark hooded sweatshirt and the pants that go along with those, that are bulky and baggy, that try and mask his appearance or body size or shape, those are clothes that are not typical for late June."

Anyone with information is asked to call crime stoppers at 327-5111.
