Upset customer brandishes gun at Taco Bell drive-through in White Center


The King County Sheriff’s Office says that an upset customer brandished a handgun at the Taco Bell drive-through in White Center Sunday night, Dec. 3.

Police received a call from the restaurant at 10711 16th Ave SW just after 7 p.m. Sunday, and say that the victim – who was working at the drive-through window – told them that a gray, 1990s Nissan pulled up and ordered food. The victim had difficulties hearing what the customers ordered but filled the order. When the Nissan got to the window, the employee saw a male driver and female passenger in the car. The employee gave the couple their drinks and they returned them saying they did not want ice. The employee then gave the couple their food and they started to pull out, but backed up and said they did not want sour cream and asked for their money back.

The employee said the suspects started cursing at him and demanding their money back. The female passenger then got out of the car and approached the drive-through window on foot. The male suspect told the victim he was going to assault him. The female suspect reached into the window and took the victim’s cell phone out of his shirt pocket. She gave it back to him seconds later. The victim gave the suspect their cash back and the male suspect reached under the driver’s seat and pulled out a handgun. The gun was never pointed at the victim. The suspects fled in the vehicle.

At this time police do not have any further information on the suspects, other than they are described as a black male and black female in their 20’s.

The vehicle was described as a 4 door, gray Nissan.
