The reported Bob’s Burgers robbery and sexual assault that rocked SeaTac was a hoax, multiple law enforcement sources reveal to The Jason Rantz Show on KTTH.

Seattle robbery suspect tries to trick police with change of clothes

The purported victims claimed two men in masks tied them up on the evening of October 19. The victims said the thieves took jewelry and cash, before sexually assaulting two female customers. This didn’t happen.

King County Sheriff Mitzi Johakneckt joined the show Monday afternoon to confirm the hoax. Listen:

Instead, it was an “inside job” where the supposed victims thought this crime would prevent them from deportation.

“It was over U-Visa applications,” according to the source.

Those involved are suspected to be in this country illegally, though this isn’t checked by law enforcement due to sanctuary city, county, and state laws.

My sources say everyone involved in the robbery — from the individuals tied up, to the person who made the 911 — knew it was a hoax, though it remains unclear how deep into the subterfuge everyone was clued in.

The case took considerable manpower to investigate, including looking for cars and suspects matching the descriptions of those involved. This put both officers and the public unnecessarily at risk.

Early on in the investigation, law enforcement became suspicious due to inconsistencies in the stories. The King County Sheriff’s Office will refer their findings to the King County Prosecutor’s Office for potential charges.
