On 03/18/2010 shortly before 6:00 pm Shoreline Police responded to a report of a robbery that had just occurred at the liquor store in the 18300 block of Aurora Avenue North.

According to the clerk, a white male in his late 40’s to early 50’s, medium build with darkish graying stubble entered the store. The male got into the check out line and stood behind a woman who was not quite ready to check out. The clerk asked the male to step forward. The male set a pint of vodka on the counter. The clerk rang up the sale and asked him for payment. At this point, the male displayed a large knife and told the clerk he wanted the money out of the till. The clerk was unable to open the register at which time the suspect became angry grabbed the vodka and left.

A K-9 Unit responded and officers conducted a search but the suspect was not located. This investigation will be forwarded to the King County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit for follow-up.
