LAKE STEVENS — A man ran from the driver’s seat of a stolen car into a Lake Stevens neighborhood, but couldn’t hide from the nose of a police dog.
An officer checked the license plate of a 2005 Honda car around 10:55 a.m. outside the Trestle Station in Lake Stevens, and found the car had been reported stolen, Lake Stevens police Cmdr. Jeff Beazizo said. The driver ran when the officer tried to confront him. A woman stayed behind in a passenger seat.
Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies sent a police dog to help with the search. About a half-hour later, the dog found the man hiding in a back yard down the street, in the 7800 block of 15th Place SE, according to police.
He was arrested for investigation of possessing a stolen car.
