Thief tries to steal from Auto Zone; gets head examined, then is trespassed
Burien Police/King County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday (April 2) responded to the Auto Zone in the Burien Plaza at 120 SW 148th Street about reports of a man who had attempted to steal some items.
The suspect allegedly threw the stolen car-related products at an employee as he fled the auto parts store.
Police found the suspect near the Rite Aid nearby, and deputies discovered that he had injuries to his head. Burien/Normandy Park Fire Department personnel responded and examined the suspect, who told them the “old injuries” were from being assaulted in Seattle.
Ultimately the proprietors of Auto Zone declined to prosecute, but asked police to trespass him from their store.
He was also trespassed from Rite Aid at the employees request.
