Update: Police Release Additional Photos of Kirkland Robbery Suspect

Police say the man has hit seven businesses in town, and 11 elsewhere in the region, since October.

Update, Jan. 18: Kirkland Police Lt. Mike Murray sent an email to local media Friday with new photos of the man suspected in 18 robberies around the Puget Sound region (see attached).

The three photos are stills taken from the Wednesday robbery at the Chevron on Northeast 85th Street, Murray said.

"The middle shot shows the greatest portion of his face that we’ve seen so far. As you can see, he is very round-faced, with dark eyebrows and eyes," Murray said in the email.

The suspect was armed with the same weapon police say he's used in previous robberies—a dark gun with a narrow barrel and "shiny silver ejection port area." Police say he was wearing shoes with black trim on top (see photos), and his sweatshirt might include a Carhartt logo.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kirkland Police Department Tipline at 425-587-3515. 


Original post, Jan. 17: Kirkland Police say yet another city business was robbed by the person suspected in 18 armed robberies stretching from Everett to Renton in the past three months.

The latest was a robbery at the Chevron gas station on Northeast 85th Street on Wednesday, the seventh in Kirkland attributed to this suspect, according to the police department. Here are more details from the department's statement.

In each incident, the suspect is wearing gloves and displays a black handgun.  The businesses robbed have included Subway restaurants, Baskin Robbins, various gas stations and coffee stands. The suspect demands money from the till and leaves on foot. 

The suspect has been described as a white or Hispanic male ranging in age from 25-30 years old, 5-foot-2 to 5-foot-6, with a stocky build. He typically wears a stocking type hat with a hood pulled up and a bandana concealing the lower portion of his face.  It is believed that the suspect is leaving the scene in a nearby staged getaway vehicle and may not be working alone.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kirkland Police Department Tipline at 425-587-3515.
