1:13 PM: Thanks for the tips. Police are investigating an armed robbery at the Morgan Junction BECU standalone ATM today. It was reported just before 10:30 am. According to archived SPD audio, the robbers were described as three “unknown race males,” late teens or early 20s, wearing masks, in what turned out to be a stolen white Kia Soul, taken from the 3600 block of Beach Drive earlier this morning. One of the robbers had a gun. We’ll add anything more we find out.
2:31 PM: The robbery victim emailed us. Here’s how she says it happened: “Three young folk, all masked. Bright daylight, other people around. Only took maybe 30 seconds for them to get out of the car, take my wallet (and keys, ugh), get back in the car and drive off. Police confirmed the car was stolen, and that my description and those of other bystanders matched with other reports they’ve gotten from other recent incidents.” Meantime, a commenter below says their friend owns the stolen getaway car and that it was taken at about 2:30 am.
