Deputies pursue, arrest car theft suspect near Lynnwood

The man was also wanted for a robbery earlier Wednesday in Everett. No one was injured in a pursuit.

EVERETT — A suspect in a robbery and car theft was arrested at the end of a pursuit Wednesday afternoon in the Lynnwood area.

Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies spotted the suspect’s vehicle around 4 p.m. on Alderwood Mall Parkway, said Courtney O’Keefe, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office.

A highly visible chase followed until deputies could make the vehicle spin out at 128th Street SW and I-5. One patrol car took heavy damage.

Police believe the man carried out a robbery and vehicle theft hours earlier, around 2 a.m. in the 2400 block of 61st Street SE, Everett officer Aaron Snell said. Few details about that case were available.

A woman who was in the car was detained, too, on Wednesday.

No serious injuries were reported.
