Two Burien businesses were victims of theft – apparently by the same suspect – over this last weekend, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office:

  • Friday, Sept. 6: Grand Central Bakery, 626 SW 152nd Street – at around 6:25 p.m. Friday night, an unknown male reached over the counter and apparently stole over $800.

Below is a montage of images of the alleged Grand Central thief:

  • Sunday, Sept. 8: Medzo Gelato, 917 SW 152nd Street – an unknown male opened the till while an employee was distracted and reached in and stole money and fled in a vehicle.

Here’s surveillance camera footage of the thief, who exits a silver sedan across the street, then enters the frame at around the :18 second mark:

And some images courtesy the good folks at Medzo:

Medzo’s owners posted this on Facebook:

“Help us catch a thief.

Our till money was stolen from this brazen thief on Sunday night (case # C19034517), and the same man stole from Grand Central Bakery on Friday (case # C19034316). He was caught on camera both times and drives a silver sedan.

If you can provide any information or recognize this person, please contact Sergeant J.K. Pavlovich with the KIng County Sheriff’s office: 206-973-4924,

Thank you for your support.”
