SPOKANE, Wash.- Spokane Police Officers are looking for an armed robber who made off with an undisclosed amount of cash from a Zip Trip in North Spokane. According to police, the man entered the Zip Trip at 3030 east Euclid in Spokane and produced a handgun.

He demanded money from the clerk, who gave the suspect a sizable amount of cash. The suspect then fled on foot. The robbery happened just after 11 p.m. Tuesday and police showed up a short time later. They set up a K9 track for the suspect but were unsuccessful in finding him.

The suspect is described as a white male in his early 20s. He has pale skin and blue eyes. If you know anything about this incident, police ask that you call Crime Check at 456-2233. The suspect is armed and police say he could be dangerous, so they are advising caution if you spot him.

This is the third robbery in north Spokane in the last three days. The first robbery was Sunday night when a female robbed the Rite Aid in the 5500 block of north Division of Oxycontin. The second robbery happened Monday night when a suspect got away with cash from the Papa John's on Monroe and Indiana.

In all three robberies, the suspect warned he or she was armed, but only in this latest robbery was a gun ever seen.

If you have any information about any of these robberies, police are asking that you call Crime Check (456-2233).
