Spokane Valley Major Crimes Detectives are searching for two suspects in the armed robbery of a Spokane Valley business on March 28.

Detectives are searching for anyone who noticed anything suspicious in the vicinity of Piece of Mind, located at 12101 E. 1st Street, between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Spokane Valley Deputies responded to a reported armed robbery around 9:50 p.m. The employee said he was closing the store when two adult males entered.

One of the suspects had a knife and told the employee to get on the ground. The suspects bound the employer’s hands, took the money from the cash register, glass pipes and other paraphernalia from the display case, and then left the store on foot, heading south.

The employee freed himself and called 911. He was not injured in the incident.

The first suspect is described as around 6 feet 2 inches tall, with a thin build, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, a bandana covering his face, gloves, and jeans. The second suspect is also described as around 6 feet 2 inches tall, with a thin build, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, a bandana covering his face, gloves, and jeans.

A K9 unit was called to search for the suspects, but they were not located.

If you have any information regarding the crime, or saw anything suspicious in the area around the time of the crime, you are asked to call Detective Darin Staley at 509-477-3160.
