On Thursday, April 11, 2013, at 7:15 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy Joe Bodman responded to a robbery call at Puff and Glass Studio located at 12023 E. Sprague. Deputy Bodman contacted the employee/victim who said that a white male, between 6'-6'3"
and 160-180 lbs, came into the store and asked to see a pack of Captain Kratom Thai powder. The employee gave the suspect the product who ran out of the store without paying.
The employee chased the suspect a short distance until the suspect stopped, pulled out a knife and said "you need to stop chasing me". At that point the employee stopped chasing the suspect, who was not located.
Attached are photographs of the suspect inside the business. Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for anyone providing information leading to the arrest of the suspect.
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. Tipsters do not have to give their name to collect the cash reward.
