SPOKANE, Wash. - On Thursday, April 11, 2013, at 7:15 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy Joe Bodman responded to a robbery call at Puffin Glass Studio located at 12023 E. Sprague.
Deputy Bodman contacted the employee/victim who said that a white male, between 6'-6'3" and 160-180 lbs, came into the store and asked to see a pack of Captain Kratom Thai powder. The employee gave the suspect the product who ran out of the store without paying. The employee chased the suspect a short distance until the suspect stopped, pulled out a knife and said "you need to stop chasing me".
At that point the employee stopped chasing the suspect, who was not located. Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for anyone providing information leading to the arrest of the suspect.
