Spokane Police: "Suspect in Rite Aid robbery is not typical"

SPOKANE, Wash.- Spokane Police are looking for the suspect in a pharmacy robbery at the Rite Aid on the 5500 block of North Division.  Officers say around 11:30 Sunday night, a woman came into the store, walked around for a short time, then went to the pharmacy window and put a note on the counter. 

The note said she had a gun and wanted all the Oxycontin in the store.  Employees complied with the suspect's demands, and the suspect got away with an undisclosed number of pills. When the suspect left, a store employee actually followed her for a short way. That employee lost sight of the suspect's vehicle around Francis and Division.

Police say they are looking for an Hispanic female who is about 5 ft. tall and weighs around 100 pounds. Police say the suspect's description is not typical, noting most pharmacy robberies are done by white males.

Employees saw the woman get into a black SUV with Idaho license plates. If you have any information about this incident, you're being asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233 or call 911.
