Marysville logger dies felling tree in Skagit County

ALGER – A Marysville logger died Monday after a cedar tree he was felling pinned him to the ground about 10 miles north of Burlington.

Larry Woodside, 57, was working off Barrel Spring Road, bringing down a large cedar. The falling tree got caught up on some branches, kicked back and fell on Woodside, Skagit County sheriff’s deputy chief Will Reichardt said Tuesday.

Woodside’s co-workers went to look for him after they noticed that he had stopped cutting. They found him pinned under the 2-foot-wide tree. He died before paramedics arrived.

Woodside had just started with the Everett-based logging company. He was an experienced logger, Reichardt said.

Everett: Fifth arrest in Marysville robbery

Everett police arrested another man in a home invasion robbery in Marysville.

The man, 37, was picked up during a traffic stop in Everett, Marysville Cmdr. Rob Krusey said Tuesday.

He was booked into the Snohomish County Jail under investigation for first-degree burglary, kidnapping and theft of a firearm.

He is the fifth person arrested in connection with the robbery.

Late in July, a group of men burst into a Marysville home, beat a teenager and a man, bound the man with duct tape and forced the man to go with them in a van stolen from the victim’s home.

Prosecutors said three armed men forced their way into the home apparently to steal NASCAR racing jackets, one of them signed by legendary driver Dale Earnhardt, who died in a crash at the 2001 Daytona 500.

There was no one else on board. Hagler died of thermal burns and smoke inhalation, according to the coroner’s office. The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Gold Bar: Police arrest man in assault case

Police arrested a man after he allegedly assaulted his teenage girlfriend Sunday night. The man, 23, reportedly went to his girlfriend’s home, violating a court order that prohibited him from seeing her. He allegedly assaulted her and left the house before Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies arrived, sheriff’s spokeswoman Jan Jorgensen said Tuesday. It was later learned that the sheriff’s office special investigations unit also was investigating the man for a different case in which he allegedly committed crimes against children. Deputies served a search warrant on the man’s house Tuesday and arrested him. He was booked into the county jail for investigation of first-degree burglary, violation of a no-contact order and two counts of third-degree rape of a child.
