Robber Washington ID’d from the fingerprint left on the Oreo package
Detectives investigating an armed robbery earlier this month at a gas station just outside of Seattle say they identified one of the suspects after he left a fingerprint on a package of Oreo cookies.
Ka’Seem Hassan Eugene Bell, 19, was charged last week in Kitsap County Superior Court with second-degree robbery in the November 11 detention in Bremerton, west of Seattle and Elliot Bay. . The other suspect, who pointed a gun at the cashier, has yet to be identified. Bell was booked into the Kitsap County Jail early Friday morning.
The same two suspects are said to have robbed another gas station in Silverdale, about 4 miles northwest of Bremerton, shortly after midnight on November 12, but prosecutors’ charges against Bell is kept by Bremerton.
During that robbery, two masked men allegedly broke into the cashier, with a shorter man holding the cashier pointing a gun from the counter while a taller man wearing Crocs sandals approached from behind to take money. .
