valley news: Police arrested two 17-year-old robbers last night relating to a Tuesday afternoon robbery when the two males robbed a male victim near 2nd/ Howard. One of the males pointed a black colored semi-auto handgun at the victim and demanded money. The suspects fled the area on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
On Wednesday evening the victim called 911 to report that he saw the same suspects standing near the STA Plaza at 701 W. Riverside. Spokane Police Officers arrived and both suspects fled on foot running in opposite directions.
Officers chased the first suspect as he repeatedly shoved his hands in his waistband as if he was trying to access a weapon. Robber number one eventually stopped next to a parked car where he tried to hide a stolen semi-auto handgun and was apprehended.
The second robber was arrested by STA security. He was also found to be in possession of a second stolen handgun. Both handguns were stolen during burglaries. One of the burglaries was from the Spokane Valley area on February 11, 2009. The second gun was stolen in the Tacoma area.
Both teenage suspects claim to be from the Tacoma area and are are charged with multiple felonies. The first robber was charged with 1st degree robbery, possession of a stolen firearm, and 2nd degree possession of a firearm. The second robber was charged with 1st degree robbery, 1st degree unlawful possession of a firearm and 2 counts of possession of a stolen firearm.
They were both booked into the Spokane County Juvenile facility on Wednesday, but knowing how the juvenile justice system works in Washington State, both are presumably were out “kiddy jail” before the officers even finished their reports and are probably searching for another crime to commit
