Coeur d’Alene Police are hoping to identify a man possibility connected to two robberies. Officers responded to a report of a robbery at the Tesora gas station, located at 2301 E. Sherman Ave. on Monday just before midnight.
The female clerk told police the subject stopped by earlier around 11:36 p.m. to inquire about the price of cigarettes. He said he would return - and he did to rob the store. The man waited for other customers to leave and then around 11:57 p.m., he lifted his shirt to reveal a handgun tucked into his waistband.
He was described as a white male, about 5’6” tall, 150 pounds with brown hair and stubbly sideburns. He was wearing blue jeans, a black hoodie zipper with a white ball cap on underneath and dusty black work boots.
The subject reportedly demanded money from the till and the clerk handed over an undisclosed amount of cash. The male left the store on foot.
The subject may have struck again a bit later. Officers responded to another robbery at the Walgreens at 335 W. Appleway around 1:15 a.m. on Tuesday.
