BOTHELL -- Police on Thursday arrested three men for investigation of an armed robbery that occurred earlier this month at the Yakima Fruit Market in Bothell.
The North Sound Metro SWAT Team served simultaneous search warrants on two Kirkland homes early Thursday morning and arrested two suspects.
A third man was arrested in Lynnwood later in the day by Bothell detectives.
Two men entered the business after closing May 6 and forced the night manager into the business office at gunpoint, Bothell police Capt. Denise Langford said.
The manager, 26, complied with their demands by giving them an undisclosed amount of cash.
The suspects tied the manager's hands behind his back and forced him to the floor before fleeing, Langford said.
Bothell police received information about a vehicle seen in the area during the incident and were able to find a cellphone associated with one of the suspects. That led to the identification of three men, ages 21, 22 and 24, believed to have been involved with the robbery.
After serving the search warrant, Bothell Police detectives located a floor plan of the Yakima Fruit Market inside one of the suspects' homes. All three men were booked into King County Jail for investigation of robbery and unlawful imprisonment.
