WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Police search after Lucky 5 robbery

3:05 PM: Police are investigating a robbery at the Lucky 5 gas station/mini-mart at 35th/Henderson, and that’s why the Guardian 1 helicopter has just arrived in the area. We’ve talked to police at the scene and they tell us one person, armed, held up the store, and got away with cash, only description so far “African-American, male, gray clothing,” last seen heading northbound.

3:16 PM: No luck from the air, so the helicopter has moved on, but the ground-level investigation continues. Lucky 5 has been held up before – most recently just last month.

    Damn.. I had no idea they’ve been a target for robberies. This sucks, they’re my favorite gas station and the staff inside are always really nice (usually just 1 young person behind counter)

      We also covered a robbery there in 2019; a 17-year-old was arrested and charged.

    I hope the police catch the loser! And may the loser face court ordered time or something ordered by the court. I know the store has cameras but don’t know if they record.

Sorry, comment time is over.
