WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Admiral Safeway threat, unfounded

Thanks for the tips. Admiral Safeway is open again after a threat determined to be unfounded. Here’s what SPD spokesperson Det. Judinna Gulpan: “Police responded to a reported bomb threat (there) around 7:00 a.m. Officers arrived and found most occupants of the business had already evacuated. An employee reported a suspect called and stated an incendiary device was placed inside the business and would be detonated if the suspect was not provided what was requested. Police completed a search of the business and did not locate a device. Business has reopened and there were no reported injuries.”

    Oh my gosh, I am so angry that nearly every day I find out about another criminal act within blocks of my house.  I love Safeway because I enjoy the staff who work there . The manager is constantly working to make this store an enjoyable place to shop . The staff  should not have to be subjected to violent shoplifters , assaults and now bomb threats. I am relieved that everyone was safe .

      I consider the day and night wonderful  staff at the Admiral Safeway my extended family. I know the majority of them by name.They are not permitted to try to stop robbers and thieves.But, despite this, they are put in harm’s way every f’ing day

    There was a bomb threat at a Safeway in Port Orchard today too. I hope they find this person who is obviously not stable. Very scary

Sorry, comment time is over.
