As first reported here last night, police arrested a suspect hours after Tuesday morning’s bank robbery at Washington Federal in Morgan Junction – and we now have confirmation from police that he is also the suspect in Monday night’s holdup at West Seattle Thriftway (WSB sponsor) across the street from the bank, as well as an earlier robbery at a QFC on Capitol Hill. The 48-year-old suspect was booked into jail after midnight today, so his first bail hearing won’t be until tomorrow. We’ve been working to get even more information from police, but this is what we’ve been able to confirm so far through the Southwest Precinct. Online records show his criminal history in this state goes back almost 30 years.
