A resident is warning others about the dangers of phone and other tech-related thefts at local coffee shops:

On Sunday (Feb. 17), while working in the White Center Starbucks on SW 100th Street and 16th Ave SW, someone grabbed my iPhone off the table and ran out the door while I was sitting there.

It was next to my laptop while I was working.

The Starbucks folks said they have been having recent issues with theft.

Since sharing my story with others, I’ve learned that this is not an uncommon occurrence:

  • People shared stories of having a backpack taken from under the table while they were sitting at a Panera Bread.
  • Another told me someone had taken their purse on the bench seat next to them and ran with it.
  • Another said that a friend of theirs had their phone grabbed out of their hand!
  • Another thing I learned, in talking with my son who works for Apple, is that a new trick hackers are employing is to set up a mobile device that looks like WiFi with the name of the business so that people connect to them thinking they are “Starbucks” or “Apple Store.”

The victim also reported this incident to police, and they have the serial number of the phone and said they would contact Starbucks about surveillance video.

“I also contacted Verizon and had it blacklisted and put on the stolen list so no one can activate it.”

Charges have been filed by the King County Prosecutors Office of two counts of Assault 2 against suspect Walter C. Montoya for his assault against two King County Sheriff’s Deputies during a Feb. 4, 2019 incident where Montoya barricaded himself inside a Subway restaurant in White Center.

Police say that on Feb. 4, 2019 at 4:15 p.m., Deputies were dispatched to a domestic violence disturbance near the 10400 block of 16th Ave SW in White Center. The suspect, a 29-year old male, had vandalized a car and then ran into the Subway restaurant that was nearby. When Deputies arrived on scene the victim directed them to the Subway.

Deputies approached the suspect inside Subway and he produced a knife. Both Deputies deployed their tasers, but it had no effect on the suspect. Instead the suspect charged at one of the Deputies with the knife, then turned towards the occupants of the Subway, at which point the Deputy fired a shot at the suspect fearing for everyone’s safety. The shot missed the suspect, and he retreated into the Subway kitchen and barricaded himself. The employees and customers were able to exit the store.

KCSO HNT (Hostage Negation Team) spoke with the suspect for over an hour and a half, trying to get him to peacefully surrender. At one point the suspect gave both of his knives up to Deputies, but still refused to come out. Instead he began spraying WD-40 on himself, and throughout the room, threatening to light himself on fire. Just prior to that happening, the TAC30 SWAT team made entry into the kitchen area where the suspect was barricaded.

The suspect was using a bulletin board as a shield and had a screw driver in his other hand that he began swinging at the Deputies. A Taser was deployed, but had limited effect on the suspect. Several rubber bullets were fired at the suspect as well, but they also had limited effect.

Initially the weapon was described as a “screwdriver” but as can be seen in the photos below, the weapon was a large metal rod and a paint scraper. Suspect Montoya was swinging the pipe at the TAC-30 deputies as they moved in to arrest him.

A K9 dog was then used to try and take the suspect into custody. The suspect was able to slip by Deputies and used his screw driver to try and stab at them. A shot was fired by a TAC30 Deputy at the suspect, but it did not hit him. The suspect was then taken into custody.

King County Medic 1 was on-scene immediately and treated the suspect, who was rushed to Harborview Hospital. He was listed in stable condition with a dog bite. The attending physician has confirmed the suspect was not struck by a bullet.

No Deputies were injured in this incident.

The two Deputies who fired their weapons are on paid administrative leave which is standard in Officer involved shootings.

Sheriff Johanknecht has asked the Seattle Police Department Force Investigation Team to investigate the officer involved shooting.

Read our previous coverage on this incident here.

Highline Public Schools announced that, due to weather and road conditions, all schools will start two hours late on Thursday, Feb. 14.

Buses will stop at alternate bus stops–two hours later than normal.

On Wednesday, Feb. 13, the King County Sheriff’s Office announced that they had cracked a cold case from 1995, and had arrested two suspects for Murder 1 charges.

Police say that on Nov. 27, 1995, the King County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of a suspicious vehicle parked in the 200 block of SW 97th Place in White Center.

Upon their arrival, deputies found an African-American male, identified later as Kenneth Ruffer, age 26, shot to death within the vehicle.

The ensuing investigation identified numerous persons who knew Mr. Ruffer. It was ultimately learned that Mr. Ruffer may have been set up for a robbery by a female associate who at the time was 25-years old. A male suspect at the time of the murder was 29-years old, and was named as an accomplice to the robbery-murder.

Collected evidence was examined by the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab with a DNA analysis conducted. A full DNA profile was obtained which subsequently matched a reference sample collected from the male suspect.

Although DNA evidence did allow for the identification of a suspect in this case, cooperative witnesses had to be developed. Detectives spent the past year re-examining the case, its evidence, and tracking down and re-contacting witnesses in order to develop that level of cooperation.

On Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019, the now 52-year old male and 48-year old female were booked into the King County Jail on Murder 1 charges.

“Our detectives never give up in their quest for justice for all victims” Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht said. “Today, their tireless work has hopefully brought some comfort to Mr. Ruffer’s family.”

“This case, and others like it, highlight the need for funding of a dedicated Cold Case Unit,” Johanknecht added. “The King County Sheriff’s Office has over 300 unsolved cold cases. Our major crimes detectives must balance cold case investigations with a high volume of current cases. Every victim matters, and I will continue to seek ways to ensure those who do them harm are accountable for their actions.”

Highline Public Schools announced that all schools will be CLOSED, but offices will be open on Wednesday, Feb. 13.

“Many roads in the north end of the district are still impassable, and buses are not able to access bus stops–even the alternate stops.”

Here’s the district’s announcement:

ALL SCHOOLS CLOSED – WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 13

All schools are closed on Wednesday, February 13. Many roads in the north end of the district are still impassable, and buses are not able to access bus stops–even the alternate stops.

No transportation will be provided to schools outside of our district. All scheduled activities, athletic events and public meetings are canceled.

District administrative offices are open.

Staff Expectations
Please refer to our employee expectations to see what this means for your job category. We recognize that road conditions in your neck of the woods may be more severe than those inside the district. As always, we trust you to exercise judgment in deciding whether it is safe to travel to work.

Please stay safe and warm. Continue to monitor our website for updates.

Highline Public Schools announced that – due to the ongoing weather and road conditions – all schools and district administrative offices will be closed on Tuesday, Feb. 12.

Due to inclement weather, all Highline Public schools and administrative offices will be closed on Monday, Feb. 11.

All scheduled activities, athletic events and meetings are canceled.

No transportation will be provided to schools outside of the district.

Please monitor the district’s website for updates.

The National Weather Service issued a ‘Winter Weather Watch’ and ‘Winter Storm Watch’ early Sunday morning, Feb. 10, warning of more snow – perhaps 5-10 inches on Monday – as well as other inclement weather like freezing rain (anyone remember the Ice Storm of 2012?) coming.

“Snow expected late this afternoon and tonight with accumulations of 2 to 4 inches likely,” experts said.

“Heavy snow accumulations of 5 to 10 inches are possible Monday afternoon and Monday evening before precipitation possibly mixes with freezing rain, rain or sleet.”

  • The Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 4 p.m Sunday afternoon, Feb. 10 to 4 a.m. Monday, Feb. 11.
  • The Winter Storm Watch is in effect from Monday morning through Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 12.

In the graphic below, make note of the yellow line (and notice how it’s north of our area), of which NOAA says:

“The yellow line denotes the northern boundary of a potentially hazardous mix of winter precipitation. Because some warmer air could move into the interior Monday night and Tuesday, it could mix with the cold air already in place and lead to a mix of freezing rain, snow, and sleet to areas across the interior SOUTH of the approximated yellow line in this image.”

2nd weather system arriving Monday afternoon through Tuesday will have considerably more moisture, but could pull some slightly warmer air in from the coast. This may create a potentially messy, winter weather situation. A WINTER STORM WATCH (blue shade) is in effect for nearly all of Western Washington from midday Monday through much of Tuesday. The area included within the red outlined area could receive as much as 9 to 12 inches of snow. Outside of that, much of the lowlands from Seattle northward could receive 4 to 8 inches of snow. The Olympics and Cascades could receive 1 to 3 feet of snow with this storm system. The yellow line denotes the northern boundary of a potentially hazardous mix of winter precipitation. Because some warmer air could move into the interior Monday night and Tuesday, it could mix with the cold air already in place and lead to a mix of freezing rain, snow, and sleet to areas across the interior SOUTH of the approximated yellow line in this image. This is still a developing situation and there are a host of possible outcomes. Please stay tuned to updated forecasts, watches, warnings, and advisories as they are issued. Light blue shade = winter storm watch

EDITOR’S NOTE: This post has been updated with new information from the King County Sheriff’s Office:

On Monday, Feb. 4, at 4:15 p.m., King County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a domestic violence disturbance near the 10400 block of 16th Ave SW in White Center (map below), where they encountered a 29-year old male suspect who had vandalized a car and then ran into the Subway restaurant that was nearby.

When Deputies arrived on scene, the victim directed them to a nearby Subway restaurant.

Deputies approached the suspect inside Subway and he produced a knife. Both Deputies deployed their tasers, but it had no effect on the suspect. Instead the suspect charged at one of the Deputies with the knife, then turned towards the occupants of the Subway, at which point the Deputy fired a shot at the suspect, fearing for everyone’s safety. The shot missed the suspect, and he retreated into the Subway kitchen and barricaded himself. The employees and customers were able to exit the store.

A KCSO Hostage Negation Team (HNT) spoke with the suspect for over an hour and a half, trying to get him to peacefully surrender. At one point the suspect gave both of his knives up to Deputies, but still refused to come out. Instead he began spraying WD-40 on himself, and throughout the room, threatening to light himself on fire. Just prior to that happening, the TAC30 SWAT team made entry into the kitchen area where the suspect was barricaded.

The suspect was using a bulletin board as a shield and had a screw driver in his other hand that he began swinging at the Deputies. A Taser was deployed, but had limited effect on the suspect. Several rubber bullets were fired at the suspect as well, but they also had limited effect.

A K9 dog was then used to try and take the suspect into custody. The suspect was able to slip by Deputies and used his screw driver to try and stab at them. A shot was fired by a TAC30 Deputy at the suspect, but it did not hit him. The suspect was then taken into custody.

King County Medic 1 was on-scene immediately and treated the suspect, who was rushed to Harborview Hospital. He was listed in stable condition with a dog bite. The attending physician has confirmed the suspect was not struck by a bullet.

No Deputies were injured in this incident.

The two Deputies who fired their weapons are on paid administrative leave which is standard in Officer involved shootings.

Sheriff Johanknecht has asked the Seattle Police Department Force Investigation Team to investigate the officer involved shooting.

Here’s video courtesy KOMO News:

The Subway is located at 10406 16th Ave SW:

UPDATE Feb. 5, 2019: Highline Public Schools will be CLOSED on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019, the district announced early Tuesday morning:

From Advertiser Attorney W. Tracy Codd:

What To Do When You Are Involved
In An Auto Accident

As winter weather continues to impact driver visibility and make freeways and highways especially dangerous, auto accidents become more frequent, and often times these accidents involve injuries that can have a long lasting impact.

If you are involved in an auto accident, the time period immediately after the accident is a critical time for documenting your personal injury claim. The importance of gathering evidence, talking to witnesses on the scene and taking photographs is important.

Here is a checklist of the information you will need to document your claim properly. This checklist may be used to organize your information, which you will eventually use to discuss your claim with an insurance company or turn over to your lawyer who is handling your auto accident case.

Information from the accident scene:

  • Information about the other driver including name, driver’s license number, vehicle license plate number, insurance company name and policy number.
  • Take photographs at the scene of the crash including any visual evidence of your injuries, vehicle damage and of the scene in general.

Always make sure you get a copy of the police report from the investigating agency. If the Washington State Patrol investigated the accident, a written application and $10.50 fee is required. The $10.50 fee is non-refundable whether a record is found or not. The Washington State Patrol accepts checks and money orders through the mail.

If you have internet access, Please go to www.wsp.wa.gov, then “Hot Topics” on the right hand side of the page, and select “Collision Reports”. At the top of the page, select the link to the form Request for Copy of Collision Report. Complete and print the form, attach the $10.50 fee and mail or bring it into our office.

If you do not have computer/internet access, you can write to WSP and provide your full name, date of collision, and a location of the collision. The WSP can also mail or fax a request form to you.

If the Washington State Patrol did not investigate the accident, then contact the investigating agency for their procedures to request a police traffic collision report.

Information after the accident:

  • Medical costs including doctor visits, prescriptions, diagnostic and lab tests, medications (prescription and over-the-counter), physical therapy, chiropractic.
  • Make sure you make a note of dates, times and amounts charged as well as the reason for seeing the medical providers.
  • Record work time lost as a result of injuries. Include time you had to take off for medical treatments and your lack of ability to function properly at work because of your injuries. It would also help to get a letter from your employer confirming your lost pay and lost time. If you are a student, make sure you record school time lost. Also document your inability to continue with school work as you did prior to the crash.
  • Try and contact witnesses. Obtain their contact information.
  • Document pain, discomfort, emotional distress, mental anguish, exhaustion and inconveniences caused by your injuries. You would be well-advised to keep a daily log or journal documenting your thoughts and how you feel each day. Also record what effect your injuries have had on your everyday life, activities and relationships.
  • List property damage, specifically car repair estimates and other related bills.
  • Keep track of out-of-pocket expenses – be it for medical care or to fix your car.
  • This is very important – Keep copies of all documents, bills and medical records.

Remember, under no circumstances should you hand over your documents to an insurance adjuster or attorney for the other side. This could be used against you, very likely, to minimize the value of your claim. Consult an experienced Washington car accident attorney, who will be able to guide you efficiently through what can be an extremely complex legal process.

…LOWLAND SNOW AND STRONG FRASER RIVER OUTFLOW WINDS POSSIBLE
SUNDAY AND MONDAY WITH COLD TEMPERATURES THROUGH EARLY NEXT
WEEK…

There is a threat of lowland snow showers across Western
Washington Sunday and Monday as a cool and moist weather system
tracks over the region. Snow levels will be close to sea level.
Given the showery nature of this system, snow amounts will not be
uniform across the region. However, heavy accumulations are
possible with stronger showers. Showers may decrease in coverage
on Monday as this system exits south of the area.

In addition, strong north to northeast winds are possible due to
Fraser river outflow. This typically affects western Whatcom
county and the San Juan Islands. Winds may peak early Monday
morning then gradually ease.

Expect cool temperatures Monday through Wednesday with highs only
in the 30s and lows in the teens to 20s. This is around 10 to 15
degrees cooler than normal.

Detailed Forecast:

  • Today: Rain. Steady temperature around 50. Breezy, with a south wind 17 to 22 mph, with gusts as high as 29 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.
  • Tonight: Rain likely before 10pm, then a chance of showers, mainly between 10pm and 4am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 42. South southwest wind 9 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.
  • Saturday: A 20 percent chance of showers before 10am. Partly sunny, with a high near 48. South southwest wind 7 to 11 mph becoming north northeast in the morning.
  • Saturday Night:A 30 percent chance of showers after 4am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 38. North wind around 11 mph.
  • Sunday: A chance of rain showers before 10am, then rain and snow showers likely. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 42. North wind 7 to 14 mph becoming southwest in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Little or no snow accumulation expected.
  • Sunday Night: Rain and snow showers likely. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 31. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
  • Monday: A 30 percent chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 36. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
  • Monday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 27.
  • Tuesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 37.
  • Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 27.
  • Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 40.
  • Wednesday Night: A slight chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 32.
