Truck found, but robbers at large in Maltby home invasion

A couple was robbed by two gunmen who broke into their home Friday claiming to be law officers.

EVERETT — A stolen pickup truck was recovered Monday in Everett, three days after a home invasion by a pair of armed robbers who claimed to be federal agents.

Now, detectives hope to talk with anyone who saw a 2011 white Ford F-350 with no tailgate or rear bumper this weekend. Its license plate is C24727J.

Two young men stole the truck around 11 a.m. Friday, when they broke into a couple’s occupied house in the 19100 block of Yew Way in the Maltby area, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

They claimed to be undercover agents looking for a fugitive, so they needed to search the house. Both had handguns. Among the property stolen was a Ford truck with a headache rack, which is a kind of cage around the back window of the cab.

Detectives recovered evidence at the scene, according to the sheriff’s office. The truck was found around 3 p.m. Monday in the 7400 block of Olympic Drive in Everett.

Tips can be directed to the sheriff’s office at 425-388-3845.
