MILL CREEK- Robbery at Car Wash

MILL CREEK- Robbery at Car Wash

On Sunday afternoon, January 27, a car wash at the intersection of 132nd St SE and the Bothell Everett Highway was robbed around 1pm.

A man approached a car wash employee, showing a gun, and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police describe the suspect as a white man, in his 20’s, about 5 foot 10 inches tall, about 190 pounds and medium build. He wore a black bandana over his face, a white jacket with a hood, blue jeans and white shoes.

If you have any information that can help police apprehend this person, please call Mill Creek Police (records office) at (425) 745-6175 and ask to talk to a detective.

According to KIRO TV News, police believe that the description of the suspect matches that of a robbery suspect that has been responsible for several recent robberies in north King County and Snohomish County.


If you find yourself in a restaurant or a store or other retail establishment that is being robbed remember the following tips:

  • Stay calm and don’t resist! Remember, personal safety first! Money and merchandise are not important.
  • Do as instructed. Don’t make sudden movements.
  • Keep your hands in sight at all times.
  • Get a look at the robber, but don’t stare.
  • If safe- get a description of the robber’s direction of travel after her/she leaves.
  • Don’t chase or follow the robber out of the business. Let the deputies catch the robber.
  • If you are outside of a business that appears to have suspicious, stay a safe distance away. Be a good witness by getting as good of a description as you can. Call 911 and let the call taker know that you have suspicious activity in progress.
