The King County Prosecutor’s Office reported on Friday (Dec. 5) that bail is set at $750,000 for the 43-year-old man who was arrested Tuesday morning after he crashed his van into the Big 5 Sporting Goods store in Burien and allegedly attempted to steal firearms from the store. The court found probable cause to keep the suspect in jail. After ramming his vehicle into the front door then driving around inside, the suspect barricaded himself inside the closed store, causingÂ a huge police turnoutÂ â€“ including SWAT, K-9, Fire and other emergency personnel â€“ to work for over four hours to get him out safely. Reports are that the suspect â€“ who police say appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol â€“ later tried to escape from Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. No injuries were reported in what becameÂ a very tense scene on SW 148th Street; here’s raw video showing his arrest: [youtube]http://youtu.be/xTAP-QzH_rQ[/youtube] A second appearance is scheduled for later today at the King County Jail. Charges will also be filed then. Read our extensive previous coverage here.]]>
