Robber positively identified had 'GET MONEY' shaved in hair

Police: Suspect advertised intentions with haircut

Man suspected of robbery had 'get money' shaved in hair


A robbery suspect was arrested after police say he was identified by his haircut: The phrase "GET MONEY" shaved onto one side of his head.

Larry Shawn Taylor, 18, now has a room at King County Jail and a Sept. 13 arraignment, where he is expected to enter a plea. 

At about 10:15 p.m. on Aug. 23, two young women were parked beneath a stoplight on the north side of the 3000 block of Northeast 137th Street. The driver was sending a text message.

Taylor allegedly walked by when the passenger's window was down.

"Taylor stepped up to the open window and pointed a pistol at (the victim)," Seattle Police Detective David Clement wrote in a probable cause document. "He said, 'Empty out your (expletive) wallet! Give me your (expletive) money!'

"The victim was very afraid, so she took $310 out of her purse and gave it to Taylor."

He then ran to a vehicle that had stopped and backed up, police said. The car drove away on 32nd Avenue Northeast.

Police say Taylor wasn't hard to identify.

The victim described him as a black man in his 20s, with a small build of 5-foot-5 or 5-foot-6, who had small ears that were possibly deformed or folded over. Victims said the suspect wore a red and black checkered zip-up jacket and blue jeans.

"He had 'MOB' shaved into one side of his hair and 'GET MONEY' on the other," Clement wrote. "He had 'GET' tattooed on his right hand and 'MONEY' on his left hand. He had flame designs on both forearms. He held the pistol with his right hand."

Clement sent out two e-mails to department personnel about the case. He noted the suspect hung out at Little Brook Park -- a notorious park known for criminal activity. Some police refer to it as Little Beirut, and neighbors have tried to deter criminals there, organizing potlucks and outdoor movie nights.

The day of the second e-mail, court documents Officer Sarah Mulloy said she stopped a suspect matching that description several times and told of another officer who had recently written him a ticket.

Another detective, Mel Britt, searched records using tattoo information as search criteria and found Taylor's name and date of birth.

That night, Mulloy, who patrols Lake City, stopped a red four-door Toyota Camry for reckless driving. She recognized Taylor, got backup and arrested him, according to court documents.

A red and black checkered shirt or jacket was viewed in the backseat. Taylor was taken to police headquarters. A search warrant document stated a loaded pistol was found in the Camry.

"Upon my contact with Taylor, I noticed that Taylor had writing shaved into his hair -- 'GET MONEY' on one side and I couldn't read the other side," Clement wrote. "I asked him where he got his hair done and he told me at the barbershop on Lake City Way."

The victim had told the detective the suspect might have gotten his hair styled at the barbershop in the 13700 block of Lake City Way Northeast.

"I noticed that Taylor's ears are deformed in a way -- the tops fold down," Clement wrote. "Taylor had 'GET' tattooed on the top of his right hand and 'MONEY' tattooed on the top of his left hand. He had flames on his left forearm."

The victim identified him as the person who robbed her at gunpoint, according to the probable cause document.

Taylor, who is from Oregon, has no known convictions, according to court documents. He's being held on $100,000 bail.
