SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. – The sheriff of a county about 70 miles north of Seattle said a restaurant owner has asked that law enforcement no longer dine there.
Skagit County Sheriff Will Reichardt said on Facebook that after four deputies finished lunch at Lucky’s Teriyaki in Sedro-Woolley Thursday, the owner asked them not to eat there anymore.
Reichardt said the deputies were told that customers didn’t like law enforcement there. The sheriff said his chief deputy called the owner later Thursday and said the request was confirmed along with a request to spread the word among other law enforcement agencies.
Calls to the restaurant for comment were met with busy signals.
The Sedro-Woolley Police Department said on Facebook it’s disappointed but they’ll continue to respond to the businesses in any way they request.
