Despite jersey, Burien robbery suspect is no Saint

Who’s that wearing the Drew Brees jersey?

That’s what King County sheriff’s detectives would like to know.  They’ve released these surveillance photos of one of three people suspected of a home-invasion robbery last Wednesday night in Burien. The suspect is an apparent New Orleans Saints fan.

The three forced their way into a home in the 13500 block of 6th Avenue Southwest around 11:15 p.m. and demanded money and credit cards from the 31-year-old resident and a friend who was visiting. The robbers fled in the victim’s vehicle with cash, credit cards, a gaming system and other items.

The vehicle was recovered Thursday.

The robber wearing the Drew Brees jersey is about  40 years old, 5-feet-9 with a heavy build.  In addition to the jersey, she was also wearing a black jacket, jeans and carried a floral Hello Kitty cloth backpack.

The other two are described as males, one is 17 to 19 years of age and he referred to the woman as his mother. The second male suspect is believed to be about 15.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311.
