SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Police have arrested two more men suspected in a string of pharmacy robberies this month at Spokane.

The 17-year-old and 23-year-old are held for investigation of robbery.

Police believe they worked with a couple arrested last week on seven of nine robberies in Spokane County.

Spokeswoman Monique Cotton told The Spokesman-Review (http://bit.ly/1eaxTHx ) investigators are sorting out what roles each played. Some of the pharmacies were scouted before they were robbed.

Most of the pharmacies that were hit are in grocery stores. The robbers got away with painkiller pills.
