Busy Night for Police: 2 Armed Robberies & Car Into Pole

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, WASH--It was a busy night for Spokane Police. They responded to two armed robberies and a car into pole.

The car slammed into a pole at Boone and Summit around 2:40 a.m. An Avista spokesperson told us that about 233 customers lost power because of the incident, but the power has been restored. The driver and passenger of the vehicle fled the scene, but three other passengers remained on the scene. One person suffered minor injuries. Police suspect alcohol may have been involved in the crash.

Just after midnight, police patrol officers responded to a report of an armed robbery at the 7-11 store at Empire and Nevada. The suspect was described as a white male in his late teens or early twenties.  He was wearing dark clothes, a hood, and had his face covered with a bandana.  The suspect displayed a handgun during the robbery and stole cigarettes and an undisclosed amount of cash. 

About two hours later another convenience store was robbed under similar circumstances.  Two white males in their late teens or early twenties robbed the Tesoro at Wellesley and Nevada.  Both males hid their faces with ski masks or bandanas. A handgun was also displayed and cigarettes and cash taken.

Officers are still gathering evidence including video surveillance from both stores.  Anyone with information on the robberies or the suspects are encouraged to contact the Spokane Police Department.
