Kudos to the clerk for having the balls to be prepared, drawing when it counts, and showing restraint.Attempted Armed Robbery At Shadle Pizza Pipeline
On 6/23/10 at approximately 9:44 pm, Spokane Police Officers responded to an armed robbery at Pizza Pipeline, located at 1724 W Wellesley.
Employees advised the suspect left the store and ran northbound. Officers quickly responded and set up containment in the area for the suspect.
Employees explained that a male entered the store, displayed what appeared to be a handgun and demanded money. An employee who has a CPL (concealed pistol license) pulled his handgun out and told the suspect to drop his weapon. This scared the suspect and the suspect ran out of the store with no money.
Officer Braun found parts of the gun in the parking lot, which were consistent with a pellet gun.
Spokane Police conducted a K-9 search for the suspect. They checked the area but were unable to locate the suspect.
The suspect was described as a younger Caucasian male, approximately 5’9”, very thin, wearing jeans, a dark colored zip up sweater, light colored gloves and a green mask.
