Local authorities are seeking the whereabouts of 37-year-old Joshua Larue who has been on a property crime spree throughout Snohomish County and was last spotted in Arlington and Everett.
“He has an outstanding felony warrant for his arrest,” Everett Police Officer Aaron Snell said. “We know Joshua’s been out in the community committing property crimes and we want to arrest him.”
Larue is 5 feet 7 inches and weighs 130 pounds, with a full-neck tattoo that extends up into his jaw. His last known residence was Lynnwood.
He has a county warrant for Possession of Heroin after he was apprehended in 2016 with 2.5 grams in the parking lot at Alderwood Mall.
Charging papers stated he admitted to running from officers because he had a warrant. Later, he said, “I stopped at first because I was planning on swinging on the officer, but I thought better of it.”
While Larue has no felony convictions, his rap sheet includes 17 misdemeanor convictions since 1998 for everything crimes ranging from Theft to DUI to Criminal Mischief and Possession of a Dangerous Weapon.
