King County sheriff’s detectives say they’re searching for tips to help identify two suspects who robbed a Shoreline marijuana dispensary on Saturday night.
Suspects armed with a handgun demanded money and marijuana from the Seashore Collective on the 17500 block of 15th Avenue Northeast, then fled in a stolen vehicle. That car was recovered shortly after the robbery about a mile away, said a King County Sheriff’s press release.
The video above gives a clear picture of at least one of the thieves while the other is more covered by a hooded sweatshirt. Detectives describe the first as a 6-foot male approximately 30 years old with an olive complexion, medium build, black hair, goatee and sideburns. He was wearing a black Kangol hat, black and gray Harley Davidson jacket, jeans, black boots and white rubber gloves.
The second suspect is described as a 5-foot-6 male approximately 25 years old with skinny build, shaved head and clean shaven face.
Anyone with more information about the suspects is asked to call the King County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center at (206) 296-3311.
