**Press Release From Spokane Valley Police Department**

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - On February 5, 2013, at 2:00 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy Wade Nelson responded to Walmart located at 5025 E. Sprague in Spokane Valley on a robbery call.  Deputy Nelson was advised by dispatch that a male and female had entered the store, concealed items and threatened Asset Protection with a knife.  Deputy Nelson was advised the suspects fled the store driving a silver 1996 Honda Accord, WA license 356VJA.  Deputy Nelson checked the area and was not able to locate the suspect vehicle. 

Deputy Nelson contacted Asset Protection employees at Walmart who told him an adult male and female were concealing merchandise inside the store.  They said the male was concealing items inside his coat and the female was concealing items inside her purse.  Asset Protection said the male and female walked past the registers without paying for the items.  When Asset Protection contacted the male he threw the items onto the floor, pulled out what the employees thought was a knife and stood in a threatening manner.  Employees backed away from the male and he left the store.  

The female also attempted to leave the store.  Asset Protection grabbed onto her jacket and she was able to take her jacket off and flee the scene.  Both suspects fled in the listed Honda Accord. 

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the male and female involved in this robbery.  The male and female suspects are walking with each other in the attached photos.  The female is wearing the heavy, dark coat and the male has a black hat on backwards. 

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.
