Seattle robber stashes loot where sun don’t shine

Talk about cracking the case.

Seattle police say a 42-year-old man robbed another man of $40 at knifepoint outside a gas station at Broadway and East Pike Street around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday. Responding officers quickly found the suspect and recovered a knife from behind the gate of a closed business, police said.

However, when police patted the man down they didn’t find stolen cash.

It wasn’t until after the man was arrested and taken to the East Precinct that he told officers where he had stashed the cash: Between his buttocks.

According to a police account, “The suspect retrieved his glute loot—two twenty dollar bills — which he handed over to police.”

Officers booked the man into the King County Jail for investigation of robbery and a theft warrant.

No word on whether the victim asked for his cash back.
