Westwood Village robbery suspect turns himself in to Burien Police
The December 19, 2013 robbery of the Rite Aid Pharmacy at Westwood Village took a turn last night as King County and Seattle police report that the suspect turned himself in to Burien Police last night. At the time he was described as an Asian male in his 20's 5' 3" mustache, wearing a black coat.
He passed a note to the pharmacist demanding prescription drugs. He fled the scene with an undetermined amount of drugs. Some drugs were later found to be dropped on the street not far from the scene of the robbery.
He was booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Robbery. The investigation revealed that a very similar robbery of a pharmacy had occurred in Burien a week earlier.
On April 17, Seattle Police Robbery Unit detectives interviewed the 29-year-old suspect, who provided information on both robberies.
According to Seattle Police Robbery Unit detectives will be responsible for the Seattle case and will coordinate with detectives from King County on the other case.
