On partner site White Center Now on Tuesday night, we reported on a “takeover”-style armed robbery at the Pawn Pros shop in WC. Today the King County Sheriff’s Office is distributing surveillance video recorded during the robbery, and asking that anyone with information about the robbers’ identities (or anything else related to the crime) please call them at (206) 296-3311.

  5. Very scary!! I know white center is bad, but seems like west seattle as a whole has gotten so much worse! I moved away for two years, to Federal way. My husband and I just moved back and I have never looked over my shoulders so much while at a grocery store. Its pathetic. I lived here for 20 years, born and raised and the crime and extents that people go to these days is very frightening. That poor boy is probably going to have nightmares- I know I would be devastated! Praying these people get caught and locked away quick. Glad they didnt shoot anyone, but doesnt mean they wont next time! They shouldnt have a chance for their to be a next time. Put em away for good NOW!!

  12. Its no excuse or justification at all, but man, i hate that place! Even when you are buying something, they treat you like scum. Everytime i have gone there and many of my friends, they practice horrible business ethics and treat you as if you are nothing. Considering they are the biggest and nicest shop out of the multiple other pawn shops in WC, they most DEF. are always trying to get over on you, which i suppose is the reason they can afford to have the nicest looking establishment.

    nonetheless, how horrible to have done that deed in the first place, let alone throwing the kid to the ground!
