Lynnwood police nab burglary suspect running through City Hall

LYNNWOOD — Police in Lynnwood say a burglary suspect on Tuesday led them to City Hall.

The Everett man, 22, was under investigation for shoplifting electronic equipment from a Lynnwood store in the 4600 block of 196th Street. Police attempted to talk with him at a nearby park.

He ran.

The suspect raced around the Lynnwood civic buildings in the 19100 block of 44th Avenue W., Lynnwood police spokeswoman Shannon Sessions said. The trail led around the Lynnwood Library, senior center, recreation center and pool and then to City Hall.

The man ran through the inside of City Hall and council chambers. Police nabbed him just as he was running out the building’s doors, Sessions said. No bystanders were injured.

The suspect was arrested for investigation of third-degree theft. On Dec. 23, he’d been released from the Snohomish County Jail where he was being held in a separate burglary case, also out of Lynnwood.
