Bothell police conduct K-9 search in downtown

After conducting a K-9 search near downtown, Bothell police believe two warrant suspects have left the area.

Capt. Mike Johnson with the Bothell Police Department said there is nothing to indicate that the two suspects are a threat to the public.

At about 11:30 a.m., officers responded to a call about three suspicious male subjects in downtown. Police made contact with the three individuals in a vehicle and after making contact, Johnson said they took off in the vehicle.

Police then received another call about suspicious subjects on foot near Beardslee Place.

“Police put two and two together and located the vehicle,” Johnson said.

The car was in the 10800 block of Northeast 195th Street.

Johnson said they found one of the men right away on a nearby foot trail, in some bushes. The man had been a passenger in the car with no warrants, Johnson said, and was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. He added that there will be no charges against the individual.

The man was not able to tell police where the other two men went and the K-9 search began around 12:40 p.m.

Johnson said the search lasted about 15 minutes and they were not able to locate the suspects. He said police believe the two men have left the area.

“We don’t believe they hunkered down in a shed or anything,” he said.

One of the men is described as a 31-year-old white male, 5-feet-11-inches tall and 150 pounds with reddish hair and a goatee. Johnson said he was the driver and has multiple warrants.

The second man is a 35-year-old white male, 5-feet-11-inches tall and 185 pounds, with brown hair.

Anyone who thinks they may have seen the suspects are asked to call the police at (425) 486-1254.
