Marysville Police Arrest Wanted Felon Driving Stolen Vehicle Marysville officers apprehended a Coupeville man wanted by the Washington State Department of Corrections regarding a prior kidnapping conviction.
On Tuesday afternoon, just after 4:30 p.m., a Marysville police officer, patrolling in the south end of town on Cedar Ave. observed a subject getting into a vehicle that the officer soon learned was a stolen vehicle out of Pierce County.
The officer initiated a traffic stop at which time two passengers immediately jumped out of the vehicle and fled on foot. The driver then sped off, attempting to elude the officer.
The suspect was driving extremely recklessly and so the pursuit was terminated. It was very shortly after terminating the pursuit the suspect drove past another Marysville officer who was able to deploy spike strips which were successful in flattening the tires of the fleeing vehicle. Officers re-initiated the pursuit from several blocks behind. The suspect drove into a residential area and bailed out of the stolen vehicle and fled on foot.
Officers were able to locate the suspect and take him into custody. It was then the 34 year old suspect told officers he fled because of the Department of Corrections warrants that would send him back to prison for a prior kidnapping conviction. He was booked into the Snohomish County jail for Possession of a Stolen Vehicle and Eluding a Police Officer.
The two passengers were both located and detained for questioning and then released.
Further inquiries regarding this press release should be directed to Commander Robb Lamoureux.
