Spokane Valley Walgreens robbed of Oxycontin

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash.- Three juveniles are in police custody after another robbery at Walgreens. Tuesday morning's robbery took place at the Walgreens located at the intersection of Sprague and Pines in Spokane Valley.

Officers at the scene say two juveniles rushed into the store just after midnight on Tuesday with shirts over their faces. A third stood lookout outside the store while the two inside demanded the potent painkiller Oxycontin from the Walgreens pharmacy.

The two inside were confronted by a Walgreens employee near the front of the business.  She told them to remove the hoods on their sweatshirts and to remove scarves or articles of clothing they had wrapped across their lower faces.

Instead, the two went to the back of the store, jumped the pharmacy counter and confronted a male employee there.  One, later identified as 18-year-old Joshua M. Warren, began punching the employee in the head while demanding oxycontin.

Two Spokane Valley police officers, who were responding to two separate traffic incidents, were the first to respond. The officers saw the three juveniles running across the street. They managed to detain one of the boys, a 15 year-old.

Officers then set up a K-9 track to find the other two suspects, 18 year-old Joshua Warren and 20 year-old David Harrington.

At the jail, officers discovered over 100 oxycontin pills in Harrington's clothing, leading them to believe that the three suspects had split up their loot prior to being caught by police.

Harrington and Warren were each booked into jail on felony counts of First Degree Robbery and multiple counts of Possession of Controlled Substance.  The 15-year-old was booked into the Juvenile Detention Center on a First Degree Robbery charge.

Officers say that Walgreen pharmacies are most often targeted because the stores are open 24 hours.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Laurel or Yanny? This debate all started from an audio clip where people can’t agree what word the voice is saying. We were discussing this in the KHQ Newsroom too and it seems like everyone is split. Some hear “yanny,” some hear “laurel,” and others hear both. So what exactly is going on? Audio specialists say that it’s a poor quality audio clip, but people hear different ranges of frequencies. Dylan Bennett tweeted an explanation ...
