Sheriff’s deputies, Seattle Police, others nab Burien bank-robbery suspect, blocks away

We haven’t turned up any other coverage of this, but we’ve learned there was a bank robbery in northeast Burien yesterday – and a suspect was caught shortly thereafter, so we’re publishing the update here. We heard about it because a reader e-mailed us about a huge multi-agency law-enforcement presence along South 116th and asked us what we knew. KCSO’s White Center Storefront Deputy B.J. Myers looked into it today and tells WCN that “it was a bank robbery at the US Bank at S 120/Des Moines Memorial Drive (City of Burien). The suspect handed a note to the cashier demanding money. The suspect left on foot as Burien Police, KCSO Deputies, Seattle Police, and a Renton PD K9 Officer arrived in the area. The suspect was located a few blocks away and money was recovered. The suspect, a 24 year old male, was booked into King County Jail for Robbery 1st Degree.”
