Spokane Valley Major Crimes Detectives are asking for your help identifying the person responsible for robbing a gas station early Sunday morning.
The robbery happened at the Mobil Gas Station near Sprague and Adams at around 2:30 a.m. on Sunday.
The clerk said the suspect had a brown paper bag in his hand and demanded money. The clerk asked if the suspect was serious. The suspect said he was, apologized and handed her the paper bag.
After receiving the money, the suspect calmly walked out of the store.
A weapon was never displayed during the robbery, but the clerk said it appeared he had one in his sweatshirt and due to his mannerisms, she believed he was armed and feared for her safety.
A perimeter was established, and despite the efforts of a K9 Unit, the suspect was not found.
The suspect was described as a white male, approximately 6’00”, with a medium/stocky build and was estimated to be in his late 20’s to early 30’s. He may have blue eyes and blond hair which is believed to be short because none of his hair stuck out from under his hood/mask but it was possibly pulled back, out of sight.
Anyone who has information regarding this robbery or can help identify this suspect is urged to call Major Crime Detective Scott Bonney at 509-477-3125, reference #10147731.
