Happy Birthday from Man O' Law!
Man Accused of Robberies on His Birthday
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Spokane police say a man picked the wrong way to celebrate his 43rd birthday. Dawayne D. Butler is accused of committing two robberies in less than half an hour.
According to a police report, a man demanded money and said he had a gun at a Rite Aid store late Sunday afternoon, only to flee when a manager intervened.
Using the same approach, a man got an undisclosed amount of money and checks from a Shopko 25 minutes later.
Soon afterward police received a report of money and checks in the street, and Butler was stopped in a vehicle and arrested based on witness descriptions.
Police say most of the money and checks taken from Shopko were recovered. Butler remains in jail for investigation of armed robbery and assault.
