Officers arrest two in Spokane Valley pharmacy robbery

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Spokane Valley Police and Spokane County Sheriff's Officers worked quickly to arrest two suspects in a pharmacy robbery at the Shopko on E. Sprague Thursday night.

The robbery was reported around 9 pm. Officers say two suspects described as white males in their 20's approached the pharmacy counter and displayed a silver handgun, demanded prescription drugs and fled the scene in a late 90's model hold Honda Accord.

Fortunately officers had a detailed description of the suspects and their vehicle and within minutes they spotted them just over a mile away near Pine and Broadway.

The suspect in the drivers seat attempted to flee on foot, tossing a silver handgun and briefly scuffling with officers before being taken into custody. The driver of the vehicle was taken into custody without incident.

At this time it's unknown what charges the suspects will face and what - if anything - they stole from the pharmacy.
