Edmonds police arrested a 40-year-old Shoreline woman on armed robbery and drug charges after she allegedly pulled a gun on a Burlington Coat Factory employee Wednesday morning during a “shoplift gone bad,” Edmonds police spokesperson Sgt. Josh McClure said.
Officers responded to a 911 call just after 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Highway 99 store, where a male employee said the woman — who was allegedly shoplifting at the store — threatened him with a gun
The suspect was walking along Highway 99 when she was located by a student Edmonds Police officer and EPD trainer. She was taken safely into custody and the weapon — which police determined to be a BB gun — was recovered, McClure said.
