Another N. Spokane store robbed by shotgun wielding crook

SPOKANE, Wash. - Police are looking for an armed robber that held up the Empire Foods store located at 5434 N. Nevada.  The robbery occurred at exactly10 p.m. Friday.

Police say a dark skinned male wearing a ski mask robbed a store clerk using a shotgun, and fled the store on foot with an undisclosed amount off money.  The suspect was wearing a blue sports jersey, black pants and dark shoes.

No one inside the store was injured in the robbery.

A similar robbery occurred last week at Divine's Fastmart and gas station around 9 p.m. Tuesday December 1st.

Police say a man wearing a ski mask and holding a shotgun entered the business and demanded money from the clerk.  He took about $100 in cash from the clerk and then left the store.  When the suspect got outside he ran eastbound down an alley where he removed his ski mask.  A witness who saw the suspect remove his ski mask later told police the suspect was a black male.

The suspect then reportedly got into a waiting getaway vehicle being driven by another person and fled the area.  Witnesses told police the getaway vehicle was a red Ford Bronco.

Anyone with information on either one of these crimes is asked to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
