Walmart Robber: Low-prices not enough for ‘cool’ crook
Seems Walmart’s low-prices weren’t enough for a robber caught on camera at the super-store in Lynnwood late last month.
Detectives say the guy went into the store at 2:30am on October 26th, threw down a couple of bucks and either some candy or gum on the counter so the clerk could open the register, then handed her a demand note threatening to have a gun. The clerk put the cash in a plastic bag, handed it off, and the robber took off.
Retired Seattle Detective Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound says he was so calm and collected, two people stood behind him in line, not realizing what was going on. In fact, right after the robber left the register, the customer behind him simply stepped up and put down his items on the counter like nothing happened.
Detectives say while he threatened to be armed, he never showed a weapon.
Here are the details on the accused Walmart robber:
- Age: 25
- Ht: 5’10”-5’11”
- Wt: 150-175 lbs
- Sores on his face
- Dark “Lake Tahoe” hoodie
- Gray or green bandana around his neck
- Fur-lined ‘Trapper’ hat
