    SPOKANE, Wash. - Authorities are looking for a man who wore a woman's dress while robbing the Walgreen's Pharmacy at 7905 N. Division Wednesday morning. He was carrying a woman's purse, wearing a purple velour-type coat and blue jeans. He also wore a black wig and a lot of makeup on his face. >>INSIDE: More Details>>

SPOKANE, Wash. - Multiple rewards have been offered for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for a series of armed robberies at pharmacies in Spokane and Spokane Valley.

Authorities say that since June 4th, a man disguised in women's clothing and makeup has robbed four different 24-hour pharmacies, stealing potent painkillers oxycontin and hydrocodone each time.

Rite Aid was targeted three times and Walgreens once.

The suspect's disguises have included sunglasses, stocking hats and hooded sweatshirts.

He has been described as a white male, 5'8" to 5'10", very thin and gaunt-looking, with brown hair and a goatee.

His clothing has included a purple woman's long-sleeved shirt, a green hooded sweatshirt, khaki shorts, workout pants, and a gray and white stocking cap. He has also worn a long black wig and a long-sleeved Under Armor-brand shirt.

Each time the robber handed the pharmacy employee a note demanding the drugs and stated that he was armed. 

A cash reward has been offered for information leading to the solution of this string of robberies.

The Rite Aid reward is $5,000 and is contingent upon arrest and conviction of the suspect or suspects involved. It likely would require the tipster to testify in court.

Persons wishing to provide information regarding these robberies can contact Crime Stoppers by calling the toll-free number 1-800-222-TIPS or by calling local law enforcement at 242-TIPS.
