ARLINGTON — An armed robber got away with $177 during a holdup Wednesday at the Crossroads Inn in Smokey Point.
Arlington officers and Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies responded to the 5200 block of 172nd St. NE about 10:20 p.m.
A man entered the inn office, displayed a handgun and demanded the employee give him money from the cash register, city spokeswoman Kristin Hanson said Thursday.
The employee opened the till, and the robber took the money and fled.
Police believe the gunman left in a vehicle. A sheriff’s K-9 unit assisted in a ground search but was unable to locate the robber.
The gunman, believed to be in his late teens or early 20s, is a white man and was wearing a dark ski cap with a black bandana across his face, a white T-shirt with gray stripes and black knit gloves.
Investigators ask anyone with information on the incident to call the Arlington Police Department at 360-435-2324.
Mountlake Terrace officer Jeremy Mooring observed a motorcycle speeding east on 212th Street SW from 52nd Avenue W. about 9 p.m. Tuesday, Detective Sgt. Craig McCaul said. Mooring clocked it at 55 mph in a 35 mph zone.
Initially the motorcycle pulled over, but the driver then sped away, heading south on Poplar Way into Brier, he said. The driver made a sudden U-turn, so the officer did too.
The motorcycle skidded out of control, striking a 4-inch-by-4-inch street signpost, McCaul said. The driver was ejected and landed in a driveway. He was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, McCaul said.
The man since has been released, he said.
The driver’s license was revoked. He faces possible felony eluding and driving under the influence charges.
