Garage Fire Monday Night Reveals Suspected Meth Lab In Everett

The case remains under investigation.

On Monday night Everett Firefighters were called to reports of a fire in a garage in the 3300 block of Rockefeller. Responding Everett Fire crews found what appeared to be a fire inside the garage that had been extinguished by the sprinkler system.

As the fire investigation started inspectors found what was believed to be a clandestine laboratory for methamphetamine. After their initial sweep they found little to no fire damage and requested police to respond.

Everett Police spokesperson Kerby Duncan tells at least two people were detained Monday night but they were not the people who rented the unit where the lab was found and claimed to have no knowledge of it. Both were released to be checked at the hospital.

On Tuesday morning the Snohomish Regional Drug and Gang Task Force responded and served a warrant at the garage. Duncan says items were recovered during the warrant that were consistent with a lab. The items have been sent to a WSP crime lab for further evaluation. No probable cause to arrest anyone for the lab exists yet as testing is still ongoing.

The Department of Ecology also responded Tuesday morning to make sure there were no environmental hazards.

Anyone with information can call the Everett Police Tip Line at (425) 257-8450.

SWAT Callout At 128th Motel 6 Ends With Sexual Assault Suspect In Custody

Editor’s Update 4:45 PM: Here is the press release from SCSO:
A 32-year-old Lakewood man was arrested for first-degree rape following a five-hour standoff with deputies. The victim, a 21-year-old woman, was transported by aid to Providence Regional Medical Center for a medical evaluation.

Around 5:50 a.m., deputies responded to a motel in the 220 block of 128th Street SW for reports of a sexual assault. Upon arrival, deputies contacted the victim who was able to escape the motel room and call 911.

Deputies attempted to make contact with the suspect in the motel room, but he refused to surrender and barricaded himself inside. The Region 1 SWAT team responded to the scene and negotiated with the suspect for several hours.

At approximately 10:40 a.m., the suspect exited the motel room and followed commands to get on his knees and place his hands behind his head. Seconds later, the suspect stood up and began running. Members of the Region 1 SWAT team deployed less-lethal pepper balls as the suspect attempted to flee. He ran a short distance and was taken into custody without further incident.

The 32-year-old Lakewood man was transported to the hospital for a medical clearance before being transported to the Snohomish County Jail where he will be booked for first-degree rape. This is an active investigation.

Everett Schools Offering Virtual School Option For K – 8 This Fall

Click to visit the website to learn more.

While the plan is to go back to 100% in-person learning this fall in the Everett School District some parents have expressed a desire for their kids to stay in remote learning. Everett Schools are planning a way for that to happen for kids in kindergarten – eighth grade. Here’s more from the district.

Everett Virtual Academy coming fall 2021, registration now open!

As we finish up this school year, thank you all for your resiliency and support. We are so excited to be back in person 100% in the fall. We also know from our family survey earlier this spring there are some families who would like to pursue 100% remote learning because their child thrived in that environment. To serve those families, we are launching Everett Virtual Academy, a virtual school for grades K – 8.

Everett Virtual Academy (EVA) is a 100% remote learning program for students in kindergarten through 8th grade. The program is designed to engage students in grade level content and learning standards through a combination of live, synchronous learning (70% of student schedule) and asynchronous, independent learning (30% of student schedule). Students are required to attend live, instructional blocks through Zoom and to access online curriculum and resources through Canvas. Additional live small group time may be scheduled by the classroom teacher.
