UPDATE: Robbery at Super Saver Foods in White Center, 1 arrested

ORIGINAL REPORT, 10:53 PM TUESDAY: If you’re seeing/hearing a big King County Sheriff’s Office response south of downtown White Center – we’re hearing via the scanner that Super Saver Foods at 10616 16th SW is reported to have been robbed at gunpoint. KCSO was told that five people were involved; no description so far. The store’s online listing says it’s usually open until 11 pm on Tuesday nights, so this happened shortly before closing time.

UPDATE, 11:02 AM WEDNESDAY: From Sgt. Cindi West of KCSO, who says it was a shoplifting case turned to robbery:

3 juvenile males went into the Super Saver and stole some drinks. A security guard followed them out of the store. The three suspects went outside and met up with 2 other juveniles. The security guard confronted the teens and one produced a handgun and threatened the security guard. The suspect then ran. Patrol deputies located the suspect who had displayed the handgun and threatened the guard nearby. He was arrested and booked into the Youth Services Center for Robbery. K-9 attempted a track for the other suspects but none were located.
