On Saturday, April 29, 2023, six males reportedly entered the Big 5 Sporting Goods store in Burien, broke a display case, then stole several Airsoft pistols.

A witness told The B-Town Blog that at around 2 p.m., they saw six young adult African American men come in to the store, smash a display case, then grab approximately $700 worth of BB guns and leave.

Police confirmed the incident, and said that the suspects fled in a stolen vehicle.

This is currently an open/active investigation, so no further details have been released at this time.

Police ask that if anyone has any information or tips about this incident to please call the Burien Police non-emergency number – (206) 477-2200 – and reference case #C23014029.
