West Seattle Crime Watch: Restaurant robbery in Admiral

(Thanks to our tipster for the photo from the search/arrest scene)
If you’re seeing police in the Admiral District – they’re investigating a robbery at Luciano’s Pizza next to the Admiral Theater. A suspect is in custody, according to Seattle Police Det. Mark Jamieson, but they’re searching for the money he reportedly says he dropped in somebody’s yard near the north end of Hiawatha Community Center‘s park. The robbery happened just after 1 pm; they don’t know if the robber was armed, but police say no weapon was seen. (Thanks to the person who texted us about the search, which in turn tipped us to the robbery – 206-293-6302 any time.)

    Hope the employees are ok, glad they caught a suspect.
    Does anyone know if the police caught the robber of the 7-11 on California Ave?

    That explains the 5 cop cars speeding by on Admiral.

    Sounds like some drunk/crackhead tried to swipe the tip jar. Why can’t people like just go die somewhere?

Sorry, comment time is over.
