FOLLOWUP: White Center marijuana-store holdups

As promised, we followed up with King County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Sgt. Cindi West today for details of the two recent marijuana-store holdups in White Center.

The first one, at Uncle Ike’s in the 9800 block of 15th SW, actually happened the night of July 2nd, she says: “4 masked men entered the store armed with handguns and robbed the store of marijuana. During the crime, an employee was pistol-whipped once in the face by one of the suspects. We have not apprehended any of them yet.”

Then last night at Bud Nation in the 9600 block of 16th SW, she says, the store was robbed around 11 pm by “a single suspect (who) entered the store and was armed with a handgun. He was not apprehended.”

Any link between the two robberies? She says they don’t know.
