Sheriff Deputies and Costco donated hams to replenish local food bank after burglary

ARLINGTON—The Snohomish County Food Bank in Arlington fell victim to a burglary on the morning of December 15 resulting in damage to their cooler and theft of food.

Arlington Police Department officers identified the suspect, who was driving a stolen truck connected to the burglary. When officers attempted to stop the truck, the suspect fled; Snohomish County deputies tracked the vehicle to the east end of Grandview Drive but lost sight of it.

Later on, a concerned citizen reported spotting the stolen truck behind a barn, with the suspect walking around it. Deputies, accompanied by Stillaguamish PD, responded and established a containment area while K-9 Craft followed the suspect’s trail from the truck. The suspect, a notorious car thief, was eventually located and apprehended.

Upon learning about the significant loss of food at the food bank due to the burglary, Sheriff’s Office deputies gathered funds and on December 21, purchased 26 hams to donate to the food bank before the holiday rush. Special thanks to the manager of the Marysville Costco, who generously made a personal donation to support the cause.
