Help Police Find This Central District Booze Bandit

Robbery detectives need your help identifying a man wanted for stealing liquor and threatening staff members at a Central District grocery store.

On July 20th, the man pulled a knife on employees at the Safeway on 22nd and E. Madison after they confronted him about the bottles of liquor he’d slipped into his backpack. Police believe the same man also stole liquor from the Madison store in May, and fled the scene in a stolen truck.

If you recognize the suspect—described as a white male, between 20 and 30 years old, 5’7, 140 pounds, with brown hair, a thin mustache and tattoos on his forearms—please contact SPD’s Robbery Unit at (206) 684-5535
