Payless Shoes Robbery In Spokane Valley

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE DEPT: On Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013, Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy Walter Loucks responded to a burglary call at Payless Shoes located at 13020 E. Sprague Ave. in Spokane Valley. 

The employee told Deputy Loucks that she observed a white female, in her early twenties, enter the store carrying a large leopard print handbag. She said the female was about 5'4", with a light build and blonde hair. The employee was concerned with the female's motives as she realized the bag may be used to conceal items.
 
Minutes later the employee heard the front door chime and walked out to greet the new customer. Instead, she saw the suspect departing the business with one of the store's new purses in hand. The suspect was also carrying the leopard print hand bag which was now bulging with shoes.
 
The employee exited the store and told the suspect to return the merchandise or she would call the police. The suspect had reached her vehicle and was placing the merchandise inside her car.  The employee approached the suspect who said, "I have a gun". The victim did not see a gun and went back into the business to call police.  The victim said the suspect drove in front of the store and was waving and smiling at her as she passed by. 
 
Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for anyone providing information leading to an arrest in this incident. 

Persons with information should call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-800-222-TIPS, or should forward the tip via the Internet website www.crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org
