SPOKANE, Wash. -- A man accused of robbing businesses across Spokane this summer was in court Wednesday.

Andrew Carr, 27, made his first appearance for two counts of first degree robbery.  His bail was set for $100,000.  

He allegedly held up three different businesses around Spokane in a span of less than three weeks.  

Carr was first arrested for a robbery at the Hot Toddy’s coffee stand June 10, according to investigators.  Two months later, police got a tip from Carr's girlfriend inside the Spokane County jail linking him to other robberies.  She was in custody for another case.  The girlfriend told detectives that Carr and one of his friends were responsible for a Pizza Rita robbery in late May as well as a robbery at Herbal Connection just two weeks before the hold up at Hot Toddy’s.

Officers arrested Carr’s friend, Marshall Barkdull, 27, last week.  Police said Carr admitted to the robberies while in jail.
    
In all three robberies, investigators said the suspects stole around $2,000.
 
Carr was scheduled to be back in court September 24.
