VIDEOS: Failed burglar caught on camera trying to break into 911 Supply store
One of Burien’s newer businesses – 911 Supply, located at 136 SW 152nd Street (map below) – was the victim of an attempted break-in on Monday night, Jan. 16.
Ironically, this business caters to the uniform and equipment needs of first responders (including police) in the state of Washington.
The attempted break-in happened around 10:30 p.m. Monday night, and involved one male suspect and a large rock.
“The suspect made several earlier attempts to ‘smash and grab,’ but either chickened out or something spooked him,” Store Manager Matt Savage told The B-Town Blog. “Either way, he did not gain entry, fortunately.”
The crime was reported to Burien Police (case #C17002738), and if you recognize the suspect you are asked to please call the police non-emergency number at (206) 477-2200.
Matt provided these surveillance videos showing the suspect’s failed attempts:
