On 020113 at 10:00 pm Coeur d'Alene Police Detectives arrested Kyle Ernest Campbell, 24 years of age, of Worley Idaho for the robbery of the Lean Bean Espresso that occurred on 013013. Detectives received a tip that led them to identify Campbell as the suspect in the robbery. During the course of the investigation detectives obtained enough evidence to request a search warrant for Campbell's residence at 310 Seltice Way in Worley ID.
Kootenai County Sheriff's Department and the Coeur d'Alene Tribal Police assisted Coeur d'Alene Police Detectives in serving the warrant. Detectives located a Sponge Bob Square Pants facial mask at his residence that is believed to be the same mask that Campbell wore while committing the robbery. Campbell was arrested and transported to the jail and booked in for robbery.
COEUR d' ALENE, Idaho - On Wednesday night a man broke in to the Lean Bean coffee stand off Sherman avenue wearing a SpongeBob Squarepants mask. Barista Stephanie Ohnstad was working at the time of the robbery with another co worker.
Ohnstad tells KHQ's Dylan Wohlenhaus, "I just screamed when he walked in." Ohnstad says the masked man demanded cash while pointing a gun at her and a co worker. The thief ran off with an un disclosed amount of cash, but not before saying "have a nice day ladies" Ohnstad says. Fortunately no one was hurt in the robbery.
Police have a vague description of the suspect. He is described as a man with a medium build. 5-foot-8 inches tall, weighing about 180 pounds. He was also described as wearing a black hoodie, pulled over his head and dark baggy jeans. Police say he fled Lean Bean on foot heading North on 13th street in Coeur d'Alene.
