Arlington man arrested after drive-by shooting

SULTAN – An Arlington man who allegedly fired several shots near two children has been arrested on suspicion of drive-by shooting.

The man was arrested Monday after the brothers, ages 8 and 9, reported that a man had driven by the front of their home while they were playing and fired a gun at them several times, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Jan Jorgensen said. Neither boy was hurt.

The boys described the truck the shooter was driving to police. A short distance away from their home in the 25800 block of Fern Bluff Road, Sultan police stopped a truck matching that description, Jorgensen said. Police found a gun, spent bullet casings and what appeared to be drugs in the truck.

The man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on suspicion of the drive-by shooting, being a felon in possession of a firearm and an outstanding warrant.

Lynnwood: Police chase two stolen vans

Two men driving stolen minivans were arrested after a short chase with Lynnwood motorcycle officers.

The officers were working traffic enforcement in the 5800 block of 168th Street SW about 11:40 a.m. Tuesday when they heard about two minivans racing in the area. The vans sped past the officers at 78 mph in a 35-mph zone a short time later, Cmdr. Paul Watkins said.

The drivers wouldn’t pull over for the officers. Both vans turned onto a dead end street. One driver hit the curb, jumped out of the van and ran. He was caught as he tried to climb a fence, Watkins said.

The other suspect made a U-turn and raced off in the van. He lost control of the van and crashed into a wooden fence in the 5200 block of 176th Street SW. He ran but was captured several blocks away.

No one was injured in the pursuits.

The men, ages 25 and 30, were arrested for possession of stolen property and eluding police.

Seattle: Man arrested for alleged heroin sales

A man who allegedly sold nearly $13,000 in heroin to an undercover South Snohomish County Narcotics Task Force detective has been arrested.

Members of the task force and agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration arrested the man Monday in Seattle following a two-month investigation, according to Lynnwood Cmdr. Bryan Stanifer.

During that time the suspect, 34, allegedly sold nearly 18 ounces of heroin to an undercover detective.

Criminal charges likely will be filed in Snohomish and King counties. The man, a Mexican national, also faces possible deportation, Stanifer said.

The task force is made up of detectives from the Lynnwood, Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace police departments.

Darrington: Injured hiker flown to hospital

A hiker injured in a remote area near Glacier Peak was lifted to safety Wednesday by a military helicopter.

The man, 59, of Portland, Ore., injured an ankle while hiking with three others on the Pacific Crest Trail. Another member of his party reported the mishap in Darrington at 3:48 p.m., Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Jan Jorgensen said.

The sheriff’s office helicopter is undergoing repairs, so a military helicopter from Fort Lewis went to the man’s aide in a rugged area about 10 miles south of Glacier Peak. He was at an area hospital before 6 p.m. receiving treatment, Jorgensen said.
