Robbers hit gas 2 stations minutes apart in Maltby, Cathcart

The same group of men appeared to be involved, and a third robbery in Bothell may be connected.

MALTBY — Three gas stations were robbed within minutes of one another Wednesday, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

At least two of the robberies were carried out at gunpoint.

The first took place just before 2:40 a.m. in the 16500 block of Highway 9 in the Cathcart area. The second was in Maltby about 10 minutes later in the 9100 block of Paradise Lake Road.

The same group of men appeared to be involved in both incidents, sheriff’s spokeswoman Courtney O’Keefe said. In each case, they apparently fled to a black SUV parked nearby.

The sheriff’s office is working with the Bothell Police Department to determine whether the same men were involved in a third robbery that took place in the same hour, O’Keefe said.

One of the clerks reported he had been attacked. He suffered minor injuries.

Deputies were still working to identify suspects, O’Keefe said.
