A Seattle man who was arrested wearing a King County Sheriff's Office-issued jumpsuit and bullet-resistant vest was charged Thursday in an attempted drug robbery.
According to police, Jason M. Lusher, 38, forced his way into a North Seattle home early Tuesday morning while armed with an AK-47-style assault rifle. Lusher was wearing sheriff's office garb apparently issued to his father, a retired sergeant.
In court documents, investigators assert that Lusher broke down the door with the butt of his rifle before accosting a woman living in the home. Police say Lusher later admitted to officers that he was looking for marijuana stolen from a friend of his.
After searching the house on North 138th Street, Lusher moved to leave, but the woman blocked him. According to court documents, Lusher then fired at a wall of the home and threatened to shoot her.
Officers responding to a 911 call from the woman heard the shot and watched as Lusher ran from the home.
In a search of the area, police found the assault rifle and a 9 mm handgun, according to court documents.
Under questioning, Lusher admitted to entering the woman's home but denied allegations that he was armed with the rifle.
Prosecutors charged Lusher with first-degree burglary and second-degree assault. He also faces an illegal gun possession charge.
Because you didn’t steal his marijuana stash. You had your own and shared.
What a buffoon. How much weed did he smoke while planning this escapade?
He probably heard that the deputies get to beat the crap out of little girls in King County, and wanted to get in on the action.
Looks like the rule of law hard at work.... Oh wait.
In court documents, investigators assert that Lusher broke down the door with the butt of his rifle..That's ONE very strong rifle butt, or one very pee poor door.
works in the mooovies...
we truly are one large scale whackjob murder spree in a 'gun free' zone from 'emergency legislation'...
