Shoplifter threatens to stab employee in the neck

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is attempting to find two females who stole merchandise from a Walmart in Spokane Valley in April.

On April 9, Spokane Valley Deputies responded to a reported robbery at a Walmart on 5025 E. Sprague.

A loss prevention employee said he saw the two females at a self-scan register. The females appeared to be scanning one item, and then placing several in the bag. When approached, one of the females said she had more shopping to do and put the items back in the shopping cart.

She then continued shopping while the other female left the store.

A second employee then watched the female with the cart walk up to another check stand and start bagging her items. The employee started to approach the female but the suspect looked at her and said she would stab her in the neck if she said anything.

The suspect then walked out of the store with the stolen merchandise.

The females were driving a silver 4-door car, possibly an early 2000s Chevrolet Malibu.

If you can help identify the females or have information on the incident, you are asked to contact Detective Darin Staley at 509-477-3160, and reference case #10046382.
