“Detectives followed the suspect car until it reached Shoreline, and patrol officers stopped the suspect and took the 30-year-old female into custody. Detectives interviewed her, and she admitted her involvement and named one of the other suspects as her brother,” police wrote in a blotter post.
Police then contacted the brother, a 17-year-old, by phone and convinced him to turn himself in.
He was booked into the Youth Services Center, officials said.
Detectives said they are still working to locate the third suspect.
He is described as a male in his late teens to early 20s, with a stocky build, and was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants, blue shorts, a black backpack and gray and white gloves.
Anyone with information on the robbery and/or the third suspect is asked to contact Detective Magan of the Seattle Police Department’s Robbery Unit at (206) 684-5540.
