Edmonds police investigating armed robbery at Highway 99 shop

Edmonds police say they are investigating an armed robbery that occurred Friday morning at Papa Smoke, located at 22315 Highway 99.

According to Sgt. Mike Blackburn, Edmonds police responding at 9:50 a.m. Friday learned from the non-English speaking victim that the robbery occurred 20 minutes prior to police being called.

A white male suspect approximately 40 years of age, perhaps 6 feet tall and wearing a dark jacket and armed with a silver blade knife demanded cash from the victim. The suspect then ran from the main entrance of the business and proceeded north on foot. The armed robber has not yet been apprehended. There were no injuries sustained or damage done during the crime, Blackburn said.

The robbery remains under investigation.  Edmonds police ask anyone with information to call the tip line at 425-771-0212.
