A 49-year-old robbery suspect was arrested last Thursday following a joint Seattle Police/King County investigation. The suspect is believed to have committed at least six armed robberies.
Beginning in January, a suspect described as a black male wearing various coats and a bandana covering his face and armed with a handgun, robbed four businesses in the White Center area and two near the Roxbury line in Seattle.
Detectives developed information about a possible suspect vehicle and eventually identified the suspect. He was arrested last week and detectives served a search warrant on his residence, where several items of clothing worn in the robberies were recovered. The suspect was booked into the King County Jail and charged with four counts of robbery. This remains an active and on-going Seattle and King County robbery investigation.
