The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in identifying a person who robbed the pharmacy at Albertson’s on U.S. Highway 395 and Hastings Road on Thursday.
According to the Sheriff’s Department, a male came up to the pharmacy counter at around 11 a.m. threw a red re-usable grocery bag on the counter and demanded “narcotics.” The pharmacist put the narcotics in the bag and the male left the store.
She described the suspect as a dark complexioned, white or Hispanic male, 5-foot-9, medium build in his mid-30s with black, collar-length hair. His face was heavily pockmarked and he may have tattoo(s) on his neck.
He was last seen wearing a black, baseball style cap with “WSU” on the front with a large red and white Cougar’s logo on the left side, a black hooded jacket, black baggie jeans and white shoes.
Anyone with information about this incident or can identify the suspect is urged to call Major Crimes Detective Jack Rosenthal at 509-477-3186.
