LYNNWOOD — Two men accused of a home-invasion robbery in Lynnwood on Monday reportedly were after heroin and cash.
Their efforts netted them $60 worth of the drug, a laptop and a single dollar bill, according to court papers. One of the suspects was arrested Monday, and the search continues for the other.
The 18-year-old man who was arrested is expected to face charges for robbery, burglary and unlawful imprisonment.
The second suspect was identified Tuesday as Ahmed Shire, 21.
The victim called 911 about 12:30 p.m. Monday. She said she was sleeping alone in her mobile home along 202nd Street SW when she heard a knock on the door. When she opened the door, two men forced their way inside. One wore a mask.
They pointed a gun at her, put a pillowcase over her head and bound her hands with duct tape. They left about five minutes later.
The woman reportedly recognized one of the suspects by his voice because he was her daughter’s ex-boyfriend.
Police collected a fingerprint from the duct tape that appeared to match the ex-boyfriend’s fingerprints, which were already in the system.
The man turned himself in to Seattle police Monday evening, after Lynnwood police contacted his family. He reportedly said they’d used a pellet gun to scare the woman but didn’t intend to hurt her.
Anyone with information about Shire’s whereabouts should call 911. He is described as black, about 5-foot-9 and with a thin build. He is believed to be armed.
