EVERETT — Police arrested two suspected burglars Thursday after a brief foot chase in Everett.
The commotion started around 10:30 a.m. when an officer saw a gray Volvo along 112th Street SE, Lt. Robert Goetz said. The Volvo matched the description of a vehicle seen fleeing from a previous burglary.
It pulled into a parking lot, and the officer followed, Goetz said. The vehicle then sped down Seventh Avenue SE. Police soon ended the pursuit for safety reasons.
Minutes later, someone called 911 to report seeing the Volvo being driven erratically near the intersection of 75th Street SE and Broadway.
As police converged on the area, they spotted the suspects running away, Goetz said.
A man and a woman, both 19, were taken into custody and were being interviewed Thursday afternoon. They were expected to be booked into Snohomish County Jail.
The suspects are believed to be involved in multiple burglaries around the region, Goetz said. Detectives plan to work with neighboring police on the investigation.
