Seattle Police searching for Ballard Subway armed robber

Seattle Police are investigating two armed robberies at Ballard Subway restaurants, and are asking the public for help.

The first robbery happened on July 16 at 9am at the Subway on 15th Ave NW. According to the police report, the suspect presented a handgun and demanded that the clerk hand over all the money in the register. The suspect then said, “Nothing personal, bro,” and the clerk gave the man $270. The suspect then ran out the door heading north on 15th Ave NW past Mud Bay towards Safeway.

The second robbery was on July 26 at the Subway on Holman Rd. The man was back with his handgun, and again made away with around $200 in cash.

The suspect is described as being 20-35 years old, clean shaven with a small soul patch and of a light brown complexion. When he robbed the first Subway he was wearing a gray baseball cap with a flat bill, and a black hoodie. He also has scarring or a birthmark around his chin/lower lip area, according to the witness.

If you have any information about the suspect, contact Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or use the P3 Tips App on your phone to submit information. Crime Stoppers will pay a cash reward of up to $1,000 if the suspect is correctly identified.

At least the armed robbers in Seattle sort of apologize, unlike our lying, thieving, self righteous City Council

Amen to that. While our fearless leaders incessantly inform us about “affordability” they raise property taxes and anything else they can. LOL. Is government EVER greedy? Does it do without? Elenchos THE agitator has never met a tax increase they don’t like.

Glad they got this new crosswalk in the works so guys like this don’t have to walk too far when they need to rob the place. Thanks, SDOT!

These posts that show up hijacking every thread with the same ax to grind should be deleted on sight. Delete enough of them and the trolls will give up.

I seriously wonder how hard the SPD are working to solve this crime. They probably took a report and have filed it away never to see the light of day again. They don’t investigate s**t. They don’t do anymore than they have to and they don’t even do that. Worst police department in the history of Washington state.

That’s not their fault. I have two friends who are SPD. They’ve told me, repeatedly, how impossible it’s become for them to do their jobs. There’s a war on convictions in this city, and it’s largely precipitated by the mayor and her city council, unfortunately. Our city is experiencing growing pains, and right now, that includes a lack of commitment to basic law enforcement…because we don’t have enough cops, and we are overly concerned with ‘offending’ the wrong groups.

The thing is, cops ALWAYS talk like that. When has a police officer not complained their jobs were impossible, city hall doesn’t support them, their hands are tied, prosecutors won’t back them, blah blah blah. Seattle cops — cops everywhere — whined about the same things in the 60s, 70, 80s. They always say that.

You’re hearing the same old bitching all employees say about their jobs. Every private in the army thinks he knows how to win the war, and he knows all the angles. Barracks lawyers. Cops are no different.

They also know about city hall, budgets, and union contracts. It’s in their interest to manipulate the public into supporting increased spending on public safety with decreased oversight. When a cop says “Do you know how fast you were going?” or “Do you know why I stopped you?” he’s trying to manipulate you into saying something that lets him cite you for as many things as possible. Or gives him an excuse to do a search. When cops act like they might let you off if you cooperate, they’r manipulating you into giving leverage leverage.

This kind of manipulation is just their job. They do it every day. So they’re talking to Joe Average Citizen about city politics and of course they’re going to manipulate you. They want their job to be easier, they want higher pay, and they want to avoid being blamed for anything. What kind of a dumb cop is going to say, “Oh, the Mayor and the Council are the best! They’re doing a great job and the whole force is as happy as clams with all the support and resources we have! Nothing is standing in our way and there’s no reason why we can’t take a bite out of crime!”

No cop will ever say that, no matter how good the police force is being coddled and lavished with tax revenue largess. If they ever admitted that, they’d be saying that if crime doesn’t decrease, then all the blame goes to the cops. They’ll never set themselves up to take all the blame. If they ever told a citizen the police are fully funded, they’re begging for budget cuts. The other cops would beat them down for such loose talk.

Remember, though. The pay and benefits for police have never been higher. There has never been a safer time to be a cop. Job injuries and death used to rival oil rig roughnecks, roofers, coal miners. Now it’s one of the safest workplaces there is. Yet they still grouse. Why wouldn’t they? It’s in their interest.

Wow! I really don’t know what planet you are living on… Never safer to be a cop? Hopefully you’ll never need one. When one of your homeless buddies is raping you or assaulting one of your kids for looking at them with curiosity. They DO show up. EVERY TIME WITHOUT FAIL! Most are caring and compassionate and really try to make a difference. Property crimes? unfortunately not enough of a priority because they are only working with 60% of the manpower that cities of similar size have. think they make too much money? Try riding with some of them for a week and see first hand the shit they deal with (not just what is shared on FaceBook or YouTube)

Have you even bothered to look this stuff up? Look:

I shouldn’t be surprised. Sockpuppeteer is obviously a Trumper. Trump has told his idiot fans that police fatalities have risen, and his stupid followers believe him because of course they do.

Look at the graph of officers killed per year. Take and imagine how that would work out to number of officers killed per million Americans. Like in 1971 when a whopping 245 officers were killed, when the US population was only 208 million. Or 1.1778 per million Americans. Whereas in 2017 there were only 129 officer deaths, while the population was 326 million. 0.396 officer deaths per million people. So 2.9766 — let’s call it 3 — the rate of officer deaths in 1971 was THREE times as high as today.

If your daddy was a cop in 1971, the odds of daddy not coming home from work were THREE times as high as now. But bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch. Complaining just comes naturally.

Hey! Let’s look up the rankings for most dangerous jobs. Back 30 or 40 years ago, police ranked high on that list. They haven’t been for YEARS. It’s pretty safe to be a cop.

Everybody whines about their job though. Human nature.

Most police are great people trying to help us all ! The police do have to follow certain rules that makes it hard for them to do there jobs in a lot of cases ! I have discovered a long time ago if you don’t do anything illegal the police won’t mess with you ! So don’t break the law and you will be fine ! What have you done that make you so paranoid elenchos ?

Guaranteed it’s someone living in an rv. Which means you’ll never find them because there’s no accountability for people who are living in their rv. No address on record means no accountability. The city council might as well have robbed these subways since they caused the problem.

Also, how many of you idiots have thought about the intersectionality of race and income with regard to the sandwiches? Why should poor people of color be forced to eat these stupid bread balls when white people, and I mean you, are probably eating eggs Benedict and caviar? You need to think about this and check your privilege.
