Update: Police search after robbery at Baskin-Robbins

10:27 PM: Police are at the Baskin-Robbins ice-cream shop on Admiral Way, where an armed robbery was reported. Nobody hurt. No description(s) so far. We have a crew there; more as we get it.

11:30 PM: Officers have been talking with employees and checking for prints; they told us they’re still “sorting out” what happened. WSB contributor Katie Meyer says the original scanner call mentioned three suspects.

TUESDAY MORNING UPDATE: We have just spoken with SPD and will put details in a separate update – bottom line, no one arrested so far.

    LOWEST OF THE LOW! I hope the people who work there are ok they are nice people. And I hope they get pictures of these fools. Sick.

    Crazy, I can’t imagine there was much money to steal. So makes me wonder what else is going on.

    Coming up Admiral way I saw two cop cars short cut up to 36th, then another four race up admiral way.
    Another was spot lighting thru Hiwatha Park. Gotta hand it to SPD for a blazing response. I hope they get their robber.

    maybe the pellet gun posse?

    sounds like there was only one employee working: if they hire teens isn’t that illegal to have them working all by themselves?

    I hope the kids that work there are ok. How scary and awful!!!

    Just saw police spot lighting by the Holy Rosary church. I’m assuming it’s related. :/ Hope they find ’em.

    awww thanks you guys. By the way, I work there and to be honest I got really scared when I heard about this. :(

  • Hoa August 16, 2011 (12:59 am)

    Thanks for you’re concern people, it means alot. We’re all okay and nobody got hurt.

  • Noelle August 16, 2011 (1:20 am)

    Any connection to the Hamilton View Point Park’s stabbing incident? Not that far away geographically and it is another nice summer night . . . have to wonder.

    This is terrible news. Hope they catch the jerks and they do a lot of time for terrorizing the nice people at Baskin & Robbins.

  • ColesMom August 16, 2011 (7:52 am)

    If they do catch these robbers they’ll likely get a slap on the hand, and 34 days in jail just like the guy who held up the computer store in the junction.

    What! Who robs an Ice Cream Shop? I am glad no one got hurt.

  • Moose2 August 16, 2011 (10:24 am)

    All the best to the staff at B & R. – and I hope the police get the criminals quickly. We don’t need them free and terrorizing our neighborhood.

    For anyone who hasn’t found it yet – at noon we published details of the robbery, from SPD, in the separate update we mentioned this morning would be forthcoming. Direct link: http://westseattleblog.com/?p=83129

    Thank you for your concern everybody, I am definately okay, just a little shaken up. And obviously the robbers needed to go through great lengths to get some money. All we can do now is pray that they get caught.

  • Jiggers August 17, 2011 (11:25 am)

    Don’t mess with my Baskin Robbins. That’s my favorite ice cream damn you.

Sorry, comment time is over.
