A Lynnwood robbery resulted in the arrest of three suspects on June 19 in Bothell.
At 12:43 p.m., a purse was reported stolen in the parking lot of the Costco located in the 18100 block of 33rd Avenue West in Lynnwood. It was taken from a shopping cart as the victim’s attention was diverted, according to Lynnwood Police Cmdr. Sean Doty.
A description of the suspect’s vehicle was broadcasted to neighboring agencies so that they could be on the lookout for the car. The vehicle was described as an orange sports car. Information developed that the vehicle was likely a stolen Dodge Charger.
At about 1:15 p.m., the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office located the vehicle and a pursuit with deputies ended in a collision at Maltby Road and SR 527 Southeast, said spokesperson Courtney O’Keefe.
The suspect vehicle collided with another car at the intersection. Three suspects were taken into custody and two others — inside the car hit by the suspect vehicle — had minor injuries.
Some areas were closed for more than an hour as detectives investigated the scene. All roads were open by about 3 p.m.
