Woman arrested in Granite Falls, accused of witness intimidation

GRANITE FALLS — A woman suspected of intimidating a witness was arrested Friday afternoon, less than two weeks after police announced they were looking for her.

Angel N. Kirchgessner, 29, was found in what police described as a homeless encampment in the 7900 block of 123rd Avenue NE.

Kirchgessner is accused of threatening to assault a witness in connection with a 2013 incident involving herself and her boyfriend. She was taken into custody without incident and booked into the Snohomish County Jail.

The Granite Falls Police Department, the Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force and a detective from the Snohomish Regional Drug and Gang Task Force were involved in the search.
