Krispy Kreme Armed Robbery: Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest Offers Reward
Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for anyone providing information leading to the arrest of the armed suspect who robbed the Krispy Kreme in Spokane Valley last Friday.
On April 12, 2019, at approximately 11:00 p.m., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to the report of an armed robbery at Krispy Kreme located at 15401 E. Indiana Avenue.
Employees reported the suspect entered the store pointing a handgun and demanded money from the cash register. After receiving the money, the suspect fled the store through the west door.
No one was injured, but the employees were extremely frightened for their lives and felt they could have been shot at any moment.
The suspect was dressed in all black including gloves, black hoodie and a mask which covered his face except for a strip across his eyes and nose. Due to the small amount of the suspect’s skin that was exposed and voice, the suspect is believed to be a white male. He was generally described as 5’11 - 6’01” and approximately 180 to 200 pounds.
Arriving Deputies established a perimeter and Deputy Hunt with his partner K9 Gunner conducted a search but were unsuccessful locating the suspect.
While searching the area, Deputies received information from witnesses at Sullivan Park, who observed a male run across the Spokane River pedestrian bridge and get into an older “beat up” white SUV or pickup with a canopy. He entered the vehicle and drove away rapidly. They could not provide a description of the male or if anyone else was inside the vehicle.
** At this time, it is not known if this male was the suspect or involved in the robbery.
Persons with information regarding this suspect are urged to call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-800-222-TIPS, or going to www.p3tips.com. Tipsters do not have to give their name to collect the cash reward.
