At about 2:04 a.m. Monday morning, three male suspects — two brandishing handguns — entered a 7-Eleven in the Thrasher's Corner area of Bothell, demanded money and exited on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.
There was no assault, and the store clerk called the Bothell Police Department afterward, according to Capt. Denise Langford. Bothell Police then contacted Redmond Police, who arrived at the 7-Eleven at 20801 Bothell Everett Highway with its K-9 unit to attempt to pick up the suspects' scent. They didn't locate the suspects.
Langford noted that there were two other robberies later Monday morning at convenience stores in Covington and Tukwila, and detectives are looking for similarities in these thefts and some from last week.
Bothell Police were reviewing the Thrasher's Corner 7-Eleven surveillance video Monday morning as part of the investigation. Police released a short video clip to the media Tuesday morning; it shows three men enter the store, two pointing handguns and moving toward the clerk and one standing watch at the front door.
Bothell police are currently working together with investigators from the Tukwila Police Department and the King County Sheriff’s Office in their attempts to identify the suspects responsible.
All three suspects were described as wearing bandanas over their faces to conceal their identities. They were described as follows:
Suspect No. 1: Dark-skinned male in his early- to mid-20s, medium build, 5-foot-10 to 5-foot-11, wearing a dark-colored baseball cap, with a white-colored bandana covering his face. This suspect displayed a black-colored handgun.
Suspect No. 2: White male with brown to light brown hair who was 6-1 to 6-2, in his early- to mid-20s, slim build, wearing a dark baseball cap, dark brown jacket and blue jeans. He wore a bandana to cover his face. The suspect displayed a black-colored handgun.
Suspect No. 3: Hispanic male in his early- to mid-20s, 5-5 to 5-7, slim build and wearing a green jacket, blue baseball cap and khaki-colored pants. He also wore a bandana over his face.
