K-9 Team Tracks Down Gas Station Robbery Suspects In Spokane Valley

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - A 58-year-old Zip Trip clerk suffered a minor cut to his hand Tuesday night when he was assaulted by one of two male suspects who were attempting to steal beer from the store at 1400 N. Mullan Road in Spokane Valley. 

The robbery occurred about 6:45 p.m.  One of the suspects swung at the clerk as they fled the store and cut the employee's hand.  No knife was seen, and no knife was recovered.  A witness told officers that the suspects' descriptions matched two suspects who had ripped beer about a month and a half ago. 

In that incident, the suspects were tracked to a home in the 1200 block of North Argonne Road.  A sheriff's K-9 team began tracking the two suspects in Tuesday's robbery, and at the same time, officers went to the home on Argonne and contacted persons inside.  They ultimately identified 19-year-old Alejandro Rivera and a 14-year-old male as the two suspects.  Both were arrested for First-Degree Robbery. 

The K-9 team continued to track the suspects and the track led to the home where the two suspects were located. Officers later discovered that the Zip Trip had the North Argonne address posted in the office should additional beer rips occur. 

A Spokane Valley Police spokesman credited the witness and perseverance of officers for the successful pursuit and arrest.
