Man arrested in apparent theft of building materials

Herald staff

MILL CREEK — Police arrested a man suspected of stealing construction materials from a new housing development Friday, according to police chief Bob Crannell.

Mill Creek police officer Mark Reidt was driving by the River Crossing development in the 15200 block of Third Avenue SE at 2:40 a.m. when he noticed a vehicle leaving the development. The vehicle was stacked with building materials.

Reidt stopped the vehicle and questioned the driver, a 29-year-old Everett man. The driver couldn’t explain what he was doing there and was arrested on suspicion of second-degree theft. Police recovered $1,500 in building materials.

  • Espresso stand robbed: A robber struck a coffee stand in the 300 block of Mukilteo Boulevard Friday night, said Everett police Sgt. Boyd Bryant.

    The robbery happened about 5:30 p.m. when a man approached the stand, just west of Forest Park in a shopping center at Olympic Boulevard. He produced a small handgun and demanded money.

    Nobody was hurt. The suspect remains at large.

  • Cousin stabbed: Two teen-age cousins got into an argument Thursday that ended when one suffered a stab wound in the back.

    The incident occurred in the 3400 block of Allison Drive about 7:30 p.m., Snohomish County sheriff’s spokeswoman Jan Jorgensen said.

    "In the process of rolling around, one got stabbed in the back and the other one cut his own thumb" with a knife, she said. "Then they patched each other up."

    When one cousin’s mother called and learned of the injury, she insisted the 18-year-old with the back injury go to the hospital.

    The youth was listed in stable condition at Providence Everett Medical Center’s Colby Campus, a nursing supervisor said.
