Crime Watch: Serial-robber photos – recognize him?

As first reported here and on partner site White Center Now (plus this update) in the past week, a serial robber has been at work in the White Center area – and further north, with last Wednesday’s holdup at the 30th/Roxbury 76 station. Today, the King County Sheriff’s Office has just released surveillance photos, with this information:


*Black, 35- 40 years of age, 5’11” – 6’0”, medium build
*Had darker black patch of skin under left eye
*Long, narrow face, Deep voice

The above-pictured suspect robbed four mini marts between January 11 and February 1, 2013.

His MO is to display a black semi-automatic handgun, possibly a Glock, and demand cash from the register. If you have information regarding the possible identity of the suspect, please contact the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311.

We are checking with KCSO to see if the photos are available in any higher resolution/size.

    The pictures and description sound like the guy that robbed A Dog’s Dream in Georgetown on December 12th. I have a picture of the composite my employee made if you would like to cross post, just in case it is the same guy.

      Please make sure KCSO knows about that if they haven’t already – they might not!

    Good Day West Seattle. I’ll resist the temptation to make a sarcastic comment about Seattle’s recent gun buyback. But seriously, the recent armed robberies are perfect examples of why we should never give up the right to arm and to defend our homes and businesses. We have a duty to not let these punks rampage the city. Stand up to these cowards. I have no pity for anyone who would attempt this in my home. And, if I owned a business, I’d also be prepared to protect it with any means necessary. Calling the police? Has that stopped the holdups? There is one solution. Stand up to these punks Seattle!

    Yes, absolutely. That is brilliant, long-term thinking. Flood the market with guns, to “protect yourself”. Then in 5-10 years when these guns start filtering through onto the streets, buy better, newer guns to “protect yourselves”.

    F—ing americans.

    Craig you didn’t resist saying anything while simultaneously claiming you did! Nice trick. I would like to propose that business owners who choose to arm themselves post an announcement to that effect so I can choose to NOT enter their businesses.

Sorry, comment time is over.
