WANTED IN KING COUNTY —   Detectives want to know the identity of the robber who hit up a West Seattle market at gunpoint.

Surveillance video showed the man walking into the business with a backpack.  Once he reached the counter, he pulled a semi-automatic pistol out of the bag with a latex gloved hand, and demanded money from the clerk.

“This is not his first rodeo so to speak,” said retired detective Myrle Carner.  “This guy’s probably been out there doing a lot of these things wearing the latex gloves, carrying a very serious looking weapon.  We’re very fortunate someone didn’t get killed in this case.”

The man took of north from the store on 16th Ave. S.W. and then west on Cambridge.westseattlerobber
