Armed Robbery At Spokane Valley Espresso Stand

Posted: Updated:

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: On Monday February 18th at 3:10 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's deputies responded to a robbery that just occurred at Dunk's Espresso located at 16919 E. Sprague.

Deputies contacted the barista who was visibly shaken and upset.  She said a white truck driven by a male pulled up to the window which she opened to take his coffee order.  The male told her he wanted the money from the cash register. 

She hesitated and replied there wasn't any cash and the male told her again, he wanted the money and this time, he placed a black handgun on his lap.  She removed the cash and handed it to him and he sped away traveling eastbound on Sprague.
 
The victim described the suspect as a male in his 30's, possibly Hispanic with short black hair and few days' worth of short stubble on his face. She also stated the male spoke with a Hispanic accent and was alone in the vehicle.
 
She described the vehicle as an "older" white, single cab truck in poor condition and she believes it was a 2WD since it sat lower to the ground than most 4WDs. She believes the truck had black lettering on the tailgate and thinks it said Nissan but again she was not positive.
 
Several deputies searched the area but the suspect and vehicle were not located.
 
We ask anyone with information about this incident to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233. 
 
We have received several tips from our citizens on previous incidents which have been extremely helpful as we work to solve these crimes and hold suspects accountable. 

We hope someone will have information about this incident and again, help us to identify yet another possible suspect.
