West Seattle, Washington
We had seen the “for sale” signs at the “Koze” store/house next door but didn’t realize till an e-mail tip that Carosello Coffee (the location’s latest incarnation) on 35thÃ‚Â is for sale too. Interesting caveat in the listing fine print forwarded by our tipster (or is this par for the course with business listings?) — “DO NOT DISCUSS SALE WITH EMPLOYEES!”
UPDATE: West Seattle Mag has some on-the-ground shots of the police search. KING5 has video on their web site showing the K-9 unit’s part in the chase and KIRO-TV has added some new shots to the slideshow mentioned here.
KIRO TV has a slide show of the police search here. Reportedly the robber is now believed to have gotten away.
UPDATE: The Seattle Times is reporting that supposedly the tellers at the US Bank at 4200 SW Edmunds received a note demanding cash at 12:30 this afternoon. The story also says, “the suspect is ‘hunkered down’ in the area around Southwest Brandon Street and 46th Avenue Southwest.”
King5 TV is reporting this on its web site.
West Seattle bank robbery – Seattle Police have surrounded a home in the 4600 block of SW Brandon Street in West Seattle where they believe a bank robber is holed up. More details to come.
You don’t have to drive 22 miles — like these Issaquah elementary-school kids spotted on a field trip this morning — for a low-tide walk at Constellation Park (p.s. looks like it’ll be even lower about this time tomorrow morning):
Less than a week since this whole sad thing happened. But two more things to note: #1, the location of Saturday’s service has been clarified, as Burien Free Methodist Church; #2, one of the anticipated fundraisers for his family is detailed here (update: this is an unofficial individual gesture by that performer and doesn’t necessarily apply to anyone else on the bill that night).
