The King County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that a pursuit – which started in SeaTac – ended in Burien Thursday night, Dec. 27.

Police say that a stolen vehicle, which was used in a robbery, fled from Officers in SeaTac and ended up near 1st Ave South and SW 160th Street.

“They caught the vehicle in Burien and have the driver in custody who fled on foot, but Guardian 1 spotted the suspect and he was arrested,” Sgt. Ryan Abbott told The B-Town Blog.

Burien P.D. said this on Facebook:

“On Christmas day an armed robbery happened at Tom’s Finer Foods in the City of SeaTac. A stolen silver Ford Expedition was identified as a suspect vehicle in the armed robbery.

On 12/27/2018 around 7:30 p.m. a SeaTac Patrol Deputy located the stolen vehicle, which fled from him. Deputies initiated a pursuit and Burien Officers joined in. The pursuit began in the area of S 188 St and International Blvd in SeaTac and ended in the 300 block of S 165 St, Burien. The pursuit ended after the suspect vehicle was disabled by a patrol car. The driver fled on foot but was captured a short distance away with the help of KCSO Air Support.

The driver is a suspect in the armed robbery from SeaTac and is currently in custody.

The apprehension of this suspect was the result of outstanding teamwork by all involved.”

A witness told us:

“Major police activity – possibly including Guardian One – at/near 1st Avenue South at about SW 155th, with no less than eight Patrol officers zipping down towards the Ambaum Cutoff road by Burien Nissan (SW 160th).

Now we hear the search helicopters.

Whatever it is it’s huge.”
