B-TOWN BIZ: B-Town Burgers Suffers Break-In, Burglary
Olde Burien business B-Town Burgers was broken into recently, suffering a shattered front glass door and a lost cash register.
The break-in was discovered Thursday morning (July 15), and was brought to our attention when they updated their Facebook page status with:
“Vandalized, but will be open for business… Thanks for the show of support and calls.”
A later Facebook update stated:
“Someone broke the front door and just went crazy inside the place.”
Our understanding is that this is just the most recent in a string of break-ins along SW 152nd Street. We’re currently awaiting callbacks from local police to get additional details, and will update our Readers as soon as we get a response.
In the meantime, it’s business as usual at the new burger joint, located at 822 SW 152nd Street, and proving to be popular amongst B-Towners.
Burien City Councilmember Jack Block, Jr. had this to say about the perceived increase in local crime:
“Presently we have a reactive police force. We need to go to active policing and to do that we need to examine our tax structure and ask residents if they’re willing to pay more for a safer city.”
