EVERETT — Police are investigating five armed robberies in Snohomish County in the past week or so.
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is working with the Everett and Arlington police departments. No one has been taken into custody.
Of the burglaries, two happened on Dec. 13 at different 7-Eleven stores.
The first was around 2:30 a.m. on North West Avenue in Arlington. The suspect was described as thin, 6-foot-1, and he appeared to be in his 40s.
About three hours later, a man with a silver revolver came into a market on North Broadway in Everett, near Everett Community College. He was described as white and 6 feet tall. He had covered his hands and face.
Around 3 a.m. the next day, a man entered the Trafton General Store on Highway 530 in Arlington. As reported last week, he was dressed in an ambiguous animal onesie. He also was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, a camouflage ski mask and black gloves. He had a gun and pepper spray.
Just after 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, the Arlington 7-Eleven was robbed again. That suspect reportedly had the same features as the man who robbed it earlier.
Then around 10:15 a.m. on Tuesday, a man with a revolver held up a Pizza Hut on Evergreen Way in Everett. He looked like the other Everett suspect, according to descriptions.
People can leave information at the sheriff office’s anonymous tip line, 425-388-3845.
