WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Store robbed

(WSB photo)

Police are investigating a robbery that happened a short time ago at the Lucky 5 ga station/mini-mart (35th/Henderson). Officers have told the dispatcher that witnesses say the robbers, wearing masks or bandanas, got away in a gray or tan SUV, possibly an early 2000s Toyota Camry, last seen eastbound on Henderson, with the passenger-side taillight turned out. The vehicle is believed to have four people inside.

    I hope the store employees are ok! Keep us posted. Thank you I shop there everyday. They are good people. Thinking of them tonight.

    Such a shame. The young women who work there are always so nice. Might sound like a mundane comment, but in a big city where so many retail workers will hardly even look up and acknowledge you as a customer I’ve really appreciated doing business with the people at Lucky 5.

    Thinking of the family that owns and operates the store, such a scary thing to happen. I hope everyone is alright.

    the comment above on the car description is an SUV 2000 Toyota Camry – Is it an SUV or a Camry?

      As with many developing stories, the info continues to develop. Most of the possibities mentioned in the early going were SUV types.

    • Witness December 1, 2019 (9:57 pm)

      Was a camery type vehicle

  • Na cant say as SPD told me not to December 1, 2019 (10:07 pm)

    Sonny was working tonight. He is shaken up but seemed to be ok. I pulled up just as things were ending. I chased the 4 suspects and obtained the vehicle description. was there for an hour with SPD giving details. Lets keep our neighborhood safe. Always keep your eyes open. Love you Lucky 5

    Thank you  NA for doing the right thing, and helping us all by reporting what you know/saw. With help from responsible community members like yourself, these A-hats will be brought to justice very soon. My thoughts to the wonderful folks at Lucky 5. I’m going to go spend some money there today, even though I stopped routinely visiting several years back (finally kicked my nicotine addiction).

    Oh no—I’m so very sorry to hear this! I love Lucky 5…my favorite place to get gas. Great service (when I’ve had to go in)  & great prices. My heart goes out to the family/staff. Your WS  community supports you!

    Very friendly family – they always greet with a smile and a kind word.  Sorry to hear about this.  Hope justice is served.

    Glad that no one appears to be injured, but still a sad situation.  Does there happen to be any addition info on the suspects, or video footage? It doesn’t sound like there were weapons involved either? I use the bus stop here, and have noticed a bunch of odd things in the neighborhood recently.

      I just got the robbery narrative as well as one for a street robbery on Thanksgiving Eve, writing the followup momentarily.

      • Norman December 2, 2019 (1:16 pm)

        How bout some descriptions of the thugs?

        • WSB December 2, 2019 (2:39 pm)

          That’s in the followup published this pm.

    Hope everyone is okay.   What is happening to our great west seattle neighborhood?  So sad. Hope they get caught and pay the price!!!

  • faceless December 3, 2019 (9:51 pm)
