The multiple suspects arrived in a stolen vehicle around 9:00 p.m., the Police Department said, before stealing two vehicles at gunpoint. The suspects immediately fled the scene.
The two stolen vehicles were later found, one unoccupied, and the other, which was located by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, with four suspects inside including a 14-year-old driver, a 14-year-old passenger, and two other juveniles. All four suspects were taken into custody and are currently booked at Denney Juvenile Justice Center in Everett for possession of a stolen vehicle. The driver is also being charged with alluding.
The case is still an ongoing investigation to see if the individuals were linked to the armed robbery, Courtney O’Keefe, Director of Communications for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office informed the Lynnwood Times.
Given the nature of the ongoing investigation, as well as the fact the suspects are underage, The Lynnwood Police Department were unable to provide any additional information about the incident.
