Robbery suspect awaiting trial arrested again

EVERETT — A Marysville man awaiting trial for one armed robbery has been arrested for investigation of another.

Mountlake Terrace police believe Kevin J. Moore, 27, and a woman accomplice assaulted an Everett man and stole his car, wallet and cellphone in the early morning of Feb. 27.

The victim told police that he’d been struck in the head with a gun and brass knuckles and was held at gunpoint.

The incident began to unfold at a Mountlake Terrace motel in the 6000 block of 244th Street SW, according to court papers. That’s where the victim said he met the man’s alleged accomplice in a laundry room around 4:30 a.m. The two reportedly decided to go to his room to smoke marijuana and heroin and were joined by Moore.

At some point, Moore allegedly pulled out a handgun and demanded the man’s car keys. While he left for a short time, the woman reportedly pointed the gun at the man.

Police believe the couple forced the man into their vehicle. When they pulled into a parking lot in the 6500 block of 212th Street SW, Moore reportedly started hitting the man.

The man eventually jumped out of the strangers’ car, taking with him a plastic tote with their possessions. He dumped that in the lot, causing its contents to scatter. As they were driving away, the Everett man punched the driver’s door window, causing it to shatter.

When police combed the container’s strewn contents, they found an employment application that included the name and an address for the woman.

Detectives traced the pair’s previous whereabouts to a Smokey Point hotel and a home in Marysville.

When police tracked down Moore on March 4, he reportedly was in possession of methamphetamine and heroin. He was still jailed Friday, his bail set at $250,000.

Moore had been out of custody awaiting trial scheduled for later this month in connection with an April 2013 robbery outside a gas station in the 5200 block of 172nd Street NE of Arlington.

“It also involved a gun,” Snohomish County deputy prosecutor Scott Halloran said during a bail hearing Wednesday.

The victim in that case said he pulled over to fix a flat tire when two men with guns appeared and demanded money and drugs. He told police he gave the men $23 and told them he’d dialed 911. They also allegedly took a cellphone belonging to his passenger. The incident was recorded on the gas station’s security cameras.

Police later came to believe that the victim’s passenger — a Marysville woman, 27 — was part of the plot. She allegedly called Moore and another man to a Marysville supermarket parking lot. While she and the victim were inside the store, one of the men slashed one of the man’s tires, which caused the driver to pull over several miles away, court papers said.
