It was high noon on a sunny Sunday last month when a man walked into John’s Corner Deli at 35th/Webster, robbed the store, and got away. Now, two and a half weeks later, there’s news of an arrest – from SPD Blotter:

… Detectives received information from Yakima possibly identifying the suspect. The suspect was already in the Yakima County Jail on a different matter. A robbery detective showed the victim a photo lineup and the suspect was positively identified. The detective travelled to Yakima and took custody of the 39 year old suspect. He was brought back to Seattle where he was interviewed and then booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Robbery. The Robbery Unit will continue to investigate this case.

  1. “already in jail on a different matter.” What a stupid menace, good work IDing him, those surveillance cams are darn helpful. With any luck he’ll go away for a LONG time.

  3. Excellent work SPD!

    I am tired of seeing that store get robbed, it is an asset to those who live near it. The owners are great people.

  4. GOOD! These P.O.S. need to crawl back into the hole they slithered out of! Leave this store alone.
