On Sunday, February 19, 2012 at 6:45pm, a man entered the Walgreens at N 175th and Aurora wearing bright blue ski gloves. He pulled out a note from his pocket and handed it to the Walgreen’s employee, telling her that he had a gun.

Two days later, on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 at 3:20pm, a man wearing bright blue gloves entered Supercuts on Westminster Way N and robbed the store. As in the previous event, the robber handed a note to the victim. This time however, the robber pulled a gun from his sweatshirt pocket and displayed it to the victim.

Three days after that, on February 24 at 8:45pm, Master Police Officer Rich Torres observed a man walking down Aurora behaving suspiciously. Torres contacted the man, who produced blue gloves from his pocket. Torres transported the suspect to the Shoreline precinct for further investigation.

Major Crimes Detective Christina Bartlett questioned the suspect, who eventually confessed to both Shoreline robberies.

The suspect claimed that the robberies were a spur of the moment decision to support his heroin habit.
