SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. --- Spokane Valley deputies arrested a man after he allegedly flashed a gun during a robbery Thursday morning.
Michael J. Yardley, 51, faces two counts of first degree robbery. One of the charges stems from an incident on July 19, where he is accused of robbing the same Umpqua Bank at 11205 E. Sprague.
Thursday, deputies responded to a report of a bank robbery at the Umpqua Bank just after 9:30 a.m. An employee told officials a male entered the bank, displayed a gun and demanded money.
Witnesses told deputies the suspect left in a teal, four-door Taurus or possible Saturn.
Witnesses describe the suspect as a white male, 5’06” – 5’10” with a heavier build and a larger, round nose. He was wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans, brown work boots and a black mask covering his face.
On July 19, Spokane Valley deputies said the suspect ran away from the scene of the crime around 9:45 in the morning. At that time, deputies said the suspect was wearing a traditional one-piece Carhartt overall jumpsuit and carrying a blue athletic bag and was armed with a semi-automatic weapon.
Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
