Hillyard 'Advance America' robbed, two suspects sought

SPOKANE, Wash. - Police are searching for two suspects after the Advance America store in Hillyard was robbed Tuesday night for the second time in as many weeks.

Police were called to the store at 4011 N. Market when an adjacent business had called 911 to say a robbery was happening at Advance America.  Two black males dressed in all black and ski masks reportedly approached the business, and one suspect entered the store and began screaming at a patron who was at the counter to get down.  The suspect then ran behind a counter and grabbed the cashier, pulling her to the back. 

The other suspect then came in screaming and grabbed the patron, pulling her to the ground and screaming at her to keep down.  The patron's daughter was outside and witnessed the entire event.  She began screaming and pounding on the window, which caused other businesses to call 911.

The second suspect ran out the front door and the first suspect went out the back door with an undisclosed amount of cash.  A perimeter was established by City and County law enforcement.  A City K-9 unit responded and was able to get a track to some apartments to the west, but the track went cold.

The patron was complaining of a sore shoulder but did not want medical personnel called.  No one else was injured in the robbery.

The suspects did not display a weapon during the robbery.

The store was robbed two weeks ago on December 1. In that robbery, the suspect walked into the business and demanded money from three employees while holding a handgun.


Anyone with any information about the robbery is asked to call the Police Tip line at 456-2233 or 911.
