WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Arrest in another ATM-related case

A 33-year-old man is in jail tonight, under investigation for the December holdup of a man using an ATM in South Delridge. Southwest Precinct police arrested the suspect yesterday afternoon near 15th and Barton. He was supposed to have a bail hearing today but he refused to go, so the judge had a probable-cause hearing without his presence and ordered another bail hearing tomorrow. The robbery happened the afternoon of December 18th at the Wells Fargo ATM at 15th and Roxbury. A man making a cash deposit was robbed at gunpoint; probable-cause documents say that after the robber left with the cash, the victim tried to use his phone to call for help, but the robber returned to grab the phone away. An investigation led to the identification of a suspect; police have been looking for him, spotted him, and arrested him. The same man was arrested in West Seattle in November after police spotted a package theft in process; it doesn’t appear he was charged in that case.

    Great, keep them coming. Get this trash off the streets. It’s time we do a sweep.

    Glad SPD is stepping it up!  All neighborhoods have changed from the safe, old fashioned, West Seattle trustworthiness into being victomized.  

    This is not my West Seattle. I’m grateful for neighbors keeping us safe as best we can.  But chronic low level crime is untenable. How can we support or demand more enforcement from SPD and the courts??

    “The same man was arrested in West Seattle in November after police spotted a package theft in process; it doesn’t appear he was charged in that case.”  Love to know why not?

Sorry, comment time is over.
