Helicopter aids in arrest of 3 fleeing Lynnwood police

LYNNWOOD — Three people with outstanding warrants were arrested late Friday night with a little help from above.

Lynnwood police attempted to stop a Dodge Dakota pickup around 8:45 p.m. in the 15600 block of Highway 99, just outside of city limits.

The driver took off, making his way from Highway 99 to Highway 405.

The pickup headed past Bothell, Kirkland and Bellevue before stopping on a dead end street in Renton.

The trio then walked to a fast-food restaurant where they were arrested.

The King County Sheriff’s Office helicopter Guardian One was used to keep an eye on the pickup after patrol cars stopped their pursuit, Lynnwood police spokeswoman Shannon Sessions said.

The driver was arrested for attempting to elude police and possession of a controlled substance as well as warrants.

The Washington State Patrol and Renton police also assisted Lynnwood police, Sessions said.
