Local briefly: 3 arrested in prostitution case at Honey’s club

EVERETT — Undercover detectives said they found sex for sale at a topless bar in south Everett.

Snohomish County sheriff’s detectives arrested two dancers and the bar’s manager Sunday during an undercover prostitution investigation at Honey’s, a topless club on Highway 99.

Shortly after detectives set up their operation, they identified three employees who were engaged in prostitution, sheriff’s spokeswoman Rebecca Hover said.

Investigators also determined that the manager was allowing violations of the county’s adult entertainment dance ordinance at the bar, she said.

Two women, both 19, were arrested for investigation of prostitution.

The manager, 52, of Marysville, was arrested for investigation of violating the county ordinance. All three women were booked into the Snohomish County Jail.

Robbery thwarted by store employee

A man who tried to rob the A1 Smoke and Grocery was beaten back by a store employee Monday night, according to police.

The would-be robber entered the store at 2625 Colby Ave. after 7 p.m. and shoved a handgun in the face of an employee, Everett Police Sgt. Robert Goetz said.

A second employee emerged from around a corner in the store and tried to disarm the robber. He took the robber’s gun, which turned out to be an Airsoft BB gun. Later during the scuffle the employee also took the robber’s T-shirt, Goetz said.

Disarmed and shirtless, the man ran out of the store and jumped into a red car and left, Goetz said. The suspected robber is described as a white man in his 20s wearing jeans and white sneakers.

Motorcyclist killed in crash is identified

Investigators on Monday evening identified the motorcyclist who died in a crash Sunday evening at the intersection of Rosewood Avenue and Holly Drive.

The man was Joseph Angel Morin, 25, of Everett. He died of a head injury in the motorcycle accident, according to the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Police said Morin was passing a minivan in a no-passing zone when the driver tried to turn left from Holly Drive onto Rosewood Avenue.

The motorcyclist struck the driver’s side of the van and was sent flying. The motorcycle struck the side of a house.

Witnesses told police the rider had passed several vehicles in the no-passing zone on the road.
