Woman claiming to have gun robs Everett food mart

Herald staff

EVERETT — A woman who claimed she had a gun robbed a Jackpot Food Mart of an undisclosed amount of money and two cartons of cigarettes Tuesday night, Snohomish County sheriff’s spokeswoman Jan Jorgensen said Wednesday.

The woman entered the store in the 300 block of 112th Street Southwest about 7:48 p.m., walked up to a clerk and asked for the cigarettes. When the clerk put them on the counter, the woman then demanded money and said she had a gun, although she did not display one, Jorgensen said. The clerk complied, and the woman fled west toward Fourth Avenue West, she said.

A sheriff’s dog was unable to track the woman.

Jorgensen described the woman as white, 35 to 40 years old, tall, thin, with an "old-looking face" and red hair. She was wearing a blue-and-white striped dress and had tattoos on her arms.

Everett police assisted deputies in the search.

Deputies ask anyone with information to call the sheriff’s tip line at 425-388-3845.
