Fugitive caught after 2 manhunts, brief chase

MARYSVILLE — Police on Tuesday caught up with a fugitive who had been the subject of two large manhunts in recent weeks.

The Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force took Timothy Lussier, 35, in custody after a brief pursuit around noon Tuesday, officials said.

Lussier tried to get away on a bicycle, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Shari Ireton said.

The suspect has several outstanding felony warrants, including assault, unlawful possession of firearms and possession of stolen property. He also is a suspect in the robbery of a north Everett business last May.

Lussier led local police on pursuits in King County and Clearview in recent weeks.
