One of Burienâ€™s newer businesses â€“ 911 Supply, located at 136 SW 152nd Street (map below) â€“ 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.
â€œThe suspect made several earlier attempts to â€˜smash and grab,â€™ but either chickened out or something spooked him,â€ Store Manager Matt Savage told The B-Town Blog.Â â€œEither way, he did not gain entry, fortunately.â€
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:
