One arrested after armed robbery

One adult male was arrested Tuesday night within 30 minutes after he robbed the Crossroads Radio Shack at gunpoint.

The incident began at approximately 5:52 p.m. in the 1300 block of 156th Ave N.E. The witness stated the suspect displayed a black handgun and then fled out the back of the store with $286.00 in cash and approximately 15 smartphones.

A police perimeter was quickly established and a K-9 team was deployed. After a description of the suspect was dispatched to patrol units in the area, a motorcycle officer spotted an individual on a Metro bus at 148th and NE 8th that matched the description. The bus was stopped and the subject matching the robbery description was detained. During a search of the suspect a handgun was removed.

The male robbery suspect was positively identified. He was arrested and later booked into King County Jail for Robbery 1st Degree including a charge of a felon in possession of a firearm. The money and the stolen cell phones were recovered from the suspect’s backpack.

The detective assigned to the case obtained a confession from the suspect. No one was injured during this incident.
