Search continues for West Seattle toy thieves

This week, as reported by numerous affiliates, SPD released the names and photographs of three suspects who stole toys from a West Seattle drug store. Sandra Garcia, Raul Hernandez, and Omar Cruz-Resendiz have been identified by SPD as the three suspects.

On Dec. 15 the suspects walked into a drugstore on the 9400 block of 16 Ave. S.W. around 7 p.m. and began stealing toys. One of the suspects, identified as Hernandez, can be seen on surveillance video loading a shopping basket full of toys and walking out without paying.

An employee with the drug store attempted to confront the suspects on their way out and followed them to the parking lot. While the three were loading their car the employee began taking pictures of the license plate with his phone.

At that point the female suspect, identified as Garcia, walked up to the employee and snatched his phone away. When she couldn’t unlock the phone in order to delete the pictures the suspect identified as Hernandez threatened to return and “deal with” the employee.
