On 11-21-2021 at 1356 hours, radio broadcast an armed robbery had occurred at a sandwich shop in the 1400 blk of 3rd Ave, but updates clarified that the robbery had occurred up to an hour earlier. Officers interviewed the clerk, who said two suspects attempted to buy food with obviously counterfeit money. The clerk tried to grab the bagged food back from the suspects, leading to Suspect #2 pulling out a handgun and pointing it at him while making a “shushing” gesture, implying that the clerk should stay quiet. The suspects fled with their stolen sandwiches, leaving their counterfeit money. There were no injuries.

On 11-21-2021 at 2358 hours officers were dispatched to an armed robbery at the Shell gas station located at 7200 E Marginal Way. Upon arrival, officers discovered that a male wearing a black jacket, black pants and a surgical mask had robbed the clerk at gun point, taking an unknown quantity of cash and (4) e-cigarette tobacco products. The suspect fled on foot towards a motel located just south of the gas station after the robbery. Containment was set and a K9 track was conducted with negative results. After reviewing evidence, officers discovered that the suspect and weapon used (semi-automatic handgun with red slide and threaded barrel) matched that of the suspect and weapon used in previous robberies in Seattle, King County, Des Moines, and Federal Way. The suspect possibly fled in a vehicle (unknown make / model) that was staged at the nearby motel.
