SPOKANE, Wash. -

A local restaurant owner fed up with armed robberies is now upping the ante for information leading to an arrest.

In the past four months, Pizza Rita on North Wall has been robbed twice.  After the first robbery, Pizza Rita owner Brian Dickmann offered 100 pizzas as a reward leading to an arrest and conviction.

When he didn't get any tips, he offered up 200 pizzas.  Now, he' s ready to write a $10,000 check.

"I would think someone would know something and would want to make 10,000 dollars cash legally," Brian Dickmann said.

Dickmann said he's offering such a big reward because he's concerned for his employee's safety.

"I think it would be worth it for the conviction and imprisonment," he added.

The Spokane Police Department said it is actively investigating the case and pursuing leads.  If you have any information call Dickmann at 953-1486 or Crime Check at 456-2233.
