Washougal police investigate armed robbery at Smead’s Pub

Suspect is at large

Smead’s Pub is open for regular business, following an early morning armed robbery Thursday.

The robber, described as a white male with gray hair, thin build and approximately 6 feet tall, remains at large. He was wearing a wig, a gray sweatshirt over a light blue flannel shirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes.

The robbery occurred at 12:22 a.m., when the suspect entered the tavern in Washougal and had contact with an employee behind the bar. The suspect showed a handgun and demanded money from the cash register. He left Smead’s with an unspecified amount of cash, according to Washougal Police.
