Heroin found after chase, crash and arrests in Marysville

MARYSVILLE — A police chase in Marysville on Tuesday led to two arrests, the recovery of suspected heroin and a car crash that snarled traffic for hours.

The incident unfolded just after 7 p.m. when a speeding car passed an officer who was driving a patrol car southbound on State Avenue. When the officer attempted to make a traffic stop, the driver sped up, eventually driving through a red light at the intersection with Fourth Street, Marysville police Cmdr. Robb Lamoureux said.

The driver lost control of the car while attempting to pass another vehicle and collided with a light pole and some trees in the 200 block of State Avenue.

Four people jumped out of the car and began running; two males and two females, Lamoureux said.

Officers ran after the men and took them into custody.

The driver, 20, of Lake Stevens, was arrested for investigation of possession of heroin. Witnesses saw him throw the suspected drugs into some bushes, along with $1,200 cash. Police estimated the street value of the drugs at $2,400.

A passenger, 19, also from Lake Stevens, was arrested for allegedly obstructing police. He was cited and released.

The other two passengers were not located. Police are not actively looking for them, Lamoureux said.

The Marysville Police Collision Investigation Team was called to the scene. State Avenue between First and Third streets was closed for about two hours.
