West Seattle Crime Watch: Highland Park ‘home invasion’ arrests

We reported last week that week that police had released photos (taken at a “nearby” ATM) of a suspect believed to be involved with a “home-invasion” robbery in Highland Park.

Today, Seattle Police report that two suspects were arrested and booked last night, as part of the ongoing investigation:

Arrests made in Highland Park robbery investigation
Robbery Detectives developed information during the course of the investigation that led them to the identity of one of the suspects involved in last week’s home invasion robbery in Highland Park. On September 1, detectives with the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force located and arrested a 37 year old suspect at 260th and Pacific Highway South in Des Moines. Robbery Detectives were following up on additional leads at a motel in Federal Way when another suspect wanted in this crime was spotted. He fled when he saw detectives and multiple units responded to the area in an attempt to locate him. The suspect was able to elude capture. At approximately 6:20 PM that 45 year old suspect was located and arrested by Federal Way Police and turned over to the Robbery Detectives. Both suspects were interviewed by detectives and later booked into the King County Jail on Investigation of Robbery. This remains an on going investigation as there may be additional suspects involved.

    Now that they caught him, can someone find out if the Einstein who got his pic taken by the ATM really looked like that? Or was he wearing a disguise? If he wasn’t, he’s got an incredibly identifiable face, and he’s therefore clearly not very smart. Anyway, nice work SPD, King County sheriff, and Fed Way PD!

Sorry, comment time is over.
