Police in marked and unmarked cars surround a Volvo

A sharp-eyed officer, calls from the public and flooding the area with marked and unmarked police cars led Everett Police to the arrests of a man and woman for multiple crimes this morning. Details are still being gathered but Everett Police Lt. Robert Goetz confirms that two people are in custody following a short police chase and later manhunt that started in the Silver Lake area and ended near 73rd and Jackson next to I-5. It began as an Everett patrol officer spotted a Volvo station wagon on 112th street that was wanted by Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputies. The wagon pulled into the 7-11 at 112th and 7th avenue SE. When the Everett officer went to stop the car it pulled out of the parking lot and raced north on 7th. As other officers tried to stop the Volvo it sped off and due to how it was being driven, Everett Police did not pursue. A few minutes later citizens called to report the Volvo being driven recklessly on Broadway near 75th street. Patrol officers and detectives flooded the area in marked and unmarked cars and found the Volvo unoccupied in the 7300 block of McDougall. A detective spotted the suspects who’d been in the car and gave chase on foot. Other officers quickly arrived and helped take the two into custody. Goetz says he will provide further details as they become available.
