Terrifying ‘takeover’ robbers: Help ID crew of crooks who held up 7-Eleven clerk at gunpoint

711-robbersWANTED IN SEATTLE —
A terrifying takeover-style robbery at a 7-Eleven store in Seattle.

Detectives need your help identifying the three armed suspects who stole smokes, cash and scratch tickets.

Detectives say they’d just hit a gas station an hour before in Renton and are believed to be behind a slew of similar robberies throughout King County the past several months.

“As you watch the video, you’re going to see a lone clerk on duty,” says Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound. “They come in and they separate, you watch them separate, they all have their guns out. Two of them approach the cashier’s area. One of them actually goes and gets the cash. The other thing you’re going to see is they’re taking all kinds of lottery tickets. That seems to be one of their MO’s. They take and they just take them all. So, they’re trying to cash them somewhere obviously. If you’re a store owner and somebody comes in with 10 or 12 of these things, be a little bit suspicious. My be the guy we’re looking for. We don’t have an identification, but as I said, they’re pretty active and the chances of them stopping are slim to none.”

They were well disguised, but take a good look at all three suspects.

The guy in the black ski mask wore a black North Face jacket. detectives think he's 6’0” and about 240 pounds.

The  second suspect wearing the blue bandana over his face is believed to be 6’0” and 200 pounds.

Detectives think the third suspect wearing the gray bandana and blue hoodie may be a woman.

All three are believed to be white or Hispanic.
