Seattle Police officers stood just outside Costco's back door waiting for a group of thieves to emerge on March 14, 2018. According to a statement from Seattle Police, “Loss Prevention officers inside the store recognized one of the suspects inside and said he had previously stolen items in the past and run out the fire exit.”
Officers began to question a woman parked behind an emergency exit when they heard someone trying to open the emergency doors from inside the store.

One 30-year-old man, an 18-year-old woman, and a 21-year-old woman were all arrested in the incident.
