WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: 4 suspects arrested in stolen car, under investigation for possible robbery connection

(WSB photo)

That was the scene at 30th SW and SW Cambridge, just west of Roxhill Park, around 3:30 pm. Police pulled over a stolen car; we were pointed to the King County Sheriff’s Office for comment, since the car was their case. KCSO spokesperson Sgt. Ryan Abbott tells WSB four people were arrested, and it’s likely more than an auto-theft case. We asked about radio exchanges indicating a possible link to robbery cases, as well as a possibly related car found in High Point. Sgt. Abbott’s reply: “We do believe they are involved in robberies; which ones, we don’t know yet.” The area’s been hit with several 4-robber holdups lately; we’ve covered two – last Saturday at a White Center phone store, and last Sunday at the 35th/Henderson Lucky 5 (here’s our followup) . Investigators are still working on all this; more information is expected tomorrow.

    Hoping this puts a dent in the recent WS spike in burglary/robbery/auto theft.

    Throw the book at them.

      It’s more like a pamphlet and it has a coupon for a large 2 topping pizza for $6.99.

    KIRO also said they might be linked to a recent armed robbery in Burien.  Thanks for getting them PD! Hopefully they stay in jail

      There have been other holdups in the metro area – I just mentioned that we personally had covered two in WS and WC with similar MO’s. Hoping for more substantial followup info later, will publish a separate followup whenever that happens.

    What kind of SUV is that in the photo? My 2005 Escalade was stolen about a month and a half ago from 45th Ave. SW between Edmunds and Alaska, and apparently it’s still missing as I haven’t heard a word about it from SPD.

Sorry, comment time is over.
