Auburn Police are investigating a series of armed robberies that occurred over the weekend. Investigators are asking for public assistance in identifying the suspect from these robberies. According to police this suspect robbed a number of convenience stores and coffee stands at gunpoint.
“The suspect is an unknown race male, approximately six feet tall with a slender build. He wore a full mask during the robberies and was armed with a handgun,” states the release.
“We are working with other law enforcement agencies as the possibility exists that there are other related robberies have occurred in other cities.”
David Rose with Washington’s Most Wanted has offered a Crime Stoppers reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest of this suspect.
Two additional armed robberies occurred Saturday in addition to these robberies. According to APD Commander Mike Hirman a male and female called in a food order to the Denny’s on Auburn Way S. Restaurant personnel confronted the pair when they attempted to take the order without paying for it. “The male suspect produced a handgun and threatened Denny’s workers,” said Hirman.
If you have any information on the subject or vehicle pictured please call the Auburn Police Department tip line at 253-288-7403.
A Yellow Cab driver was robbed at gunpoint near the 1300 block of Auburn Way S. “The cab driver provided two suspects a ride to Auburn and was subsequently robbed with a rifle,” said Hirman.
“We are currently reviewing all the robberies to determine whether there is a connection between them,” shared Hirman. “A quick review does not appear to be such, but we are still looking at it. These cases will be reviewed by the detective division and so there is nothing more to report.”
