$250,000 bail for robbery suspects arrested in Arbor Heights

(Wednesday night photo by WSB co-publisher Patrick Sand)
4:35 PM: Here’s the latest in the case of the three robbery suspects arrested in Arbor Heights late Wednesday night: Bail for each suspect is now set at $250,000, according to the King County Jail Register. We’re waiting for probable-cause documents from this afternoon’s bail hearing to come in from the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, and will add details when the info comes in. The three were arrested when police pulled over the car shown in our photo above, about half a mile north of 35th and 104th, where a woman had been held up on the street and robbed of her purse. Police then said yesterday they believe the three, ages 19, 21, and 22, were involved in two other crimes Wednesday night – an attack on a man by the Fauntleroy ferry dock, and one outside West Seattle – and that they may be responsible for some of the other recent street robberies around the city.

5:04 PM UPDATE: The documents are in. Here are some of the toplines as we read through:
-None of the suspects has a West Seattle address; the addresses listed for them are in Boulevard Park, the Central District, and First Hill
-What police found inside the car included a handgun, a purse (believed to belong to the Arbor Heights robbery victim), and “several cell phones”
-The three confessed to involvement in the three incidents Wednesday night

There is no additional information about possible criminal histories, but the jail register shows that the 21-year-old suspect from First Hill spent a day and a half in the county jail in June for a case described as shoplifting and harassment.

    Now, that’s what I’m talking about!

    Let’s keep these criminals in prison for a long time.

    Well, at least the bail amount is appropriate. Now if the next judge doesn’t reduce the bail to 25K next week, all will be well.
    I get that they are innocent until proven guilty and they haven’t been found guilty yet. But these three are the kind of people who can’t be rehabilitated and the only way the general public will be safe is if they are in jail.

    Great job police! Are these guys suspects in the North Admiral robbery?

    These guys fit the description of the 3 guys that were casing our house until my son spotted them and they fled.

    Innocent until proven guilty ends after a confession?

  • WSB August 24, 2013 (10:25 am)

    No, and that’s why we are following our usual policies here – not identifying them until and unless they are charged, for example, and unlike the writing you will find in some places (such as SPD Blotter depending on who’s doing the writing there), we’re not declaring them “the robbers.” They will remain the suspects/defendants until and unless there is a conviction or guilty plea. – Tracy
