Stolen gun recovered

On March 15, Snohomish detectives, acting on an anonymous tip, recovered a stolen firearm. An investigation is in process.
The gun was stolen from a residence just outside the city of Snohomish. Based on the initial information, deputies had reason to believe there was involvement from local high school students.
Police quickly determined that some local teens had posed with the stolen gun on social media. The schools were notified and multiple students were interviewed about the gun, but everyone interviewed denied any knowledge of the gun. All were strongly encouraged to make a report if they knew where the gun could be located. Police found the gun through an anonymous tip.
At this time no charges have been filed, but an investigation is ongoing. The Snohomish Police Department wrote on Facebook that they are thankful that the gun was recovered without anybody being hurt.

Theft arrest

On March 12, Snohomish police posted on their Facebook page that a man was arrested in connection with a theft from Dollar Tree, 825 Ave. D. The suspect allegedly loaded up two bags full of merchandise and fled the location on foot. He was contacted by police near Fourth Street and Pine Avenue, and after a short foot pursuit was eventually taken into custody. Charges are being referred to the Prosecutor’s Office.

On March 10, Snohomish Police and County Deputies responded to 9525 Airport Way for the report of a possible burglary after a male was seen in the property with a pry bar.
The suspect was soon located under the Avenue D bridge.
It was determined if any burglary had actually been attempted, but he was in violation of his probation by being under the influence, police said. The suspect, a 48-year-old Snohomish man, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail.

Arrest for felony warrant

On March 5, a detective encountered a male and female, which the man had a felony warrant, near the intersection of Bickford Avenue and Weaver Way, the Snohomish Police Department reported to its social media page.
They ran, but were caught. The department said that both people, who are in their early 20s and familiar with law enforcement, were offered services to help get off of the street and they declined, which is something they’ve declined before. The male was taken to Snohomish County Jail where he was booked for his outstanding felony warrant.
