Attempted Armed Robbery
1000 blk 72nd St E, Tacoma
Incident # 24-084-01032

A deputy was dispatched to an attempted armed robbery at a salon. When she arrived, the business owner showed her surveillance video of the incident. The video shows a truck, with its plates covered, pull up to the business. Three suspects got out and were wearing masks and gloves. Two of the suspects appeared to have guns. They tried to open the door to the business, but it was locked, so they turned around, went back to the truck, and left. The business owner thinks he was targeted because the business offers wire transfers to Mexico, which means there is cash on hand.

Armed Robbery
85th St E & Golden Given Rd E, Midland
Incident # 24-084-01582

Deputies were dispatched to an armed robbery that occurred at a roadside fruit stand. When they arrived, the 30-year-old female victim explained that she had been robbed while selling strawberries on the side of the road. She said a man pulled up in a Ford Explorer and approached her. He asked her how much the strawberries were and then pointed a gun at her. He demanded the victim’s cash and she handed it over. The suspect then fled northbound in his vehicle, and the victim used her phone to record the suspect’s vehicle. The deputy notified law enforcement officers in the area and a Tacoma PD officer recognized the suspect. Tacoma officers located him a short time later and arrested him. He eventually admitted to the robbery and claimed he used a BB gun. A deputy searched his vehicle and found a real gun under the driver’s seat. The 31-year-old suspect (a convicted felon) was booked into jail for robbery in the first degree and unlawful possession of a firearm in the first degree. A deputy returned the victim’s cash to her.
