The man’s crime spree began on Nov. 21 at the House of Glass in Federal Way, police said.  The suspect was paying for a pipe when he drew a pistol on the clerk and fled with some cash.

The next day, the suspect pulled a gun on a clerk at another House of Glass shop in Tacoma. The suspect also robbed two Puffin Glass Studios shops in Renton and Seattle on Nov. 26 .

    I have never understood the derelict state of the criminal mind, once this line is crossed there is no hope that human can ever qualify as worthy to exist; they should be put down like unwanted babies.

    This stupid SOB is just one store away from having his brains blown out. Keep it up and you will eventually run into me. What a weeny to have to use a gun but he does look like a skinny little white dork.
