Everett, Police Blotter

Editor’s Update Wednesday Jan 18 2:45 PM: A Snohomish County District Court Judge today found there was probable cause to hold a 30-year-old Everett man on $100,000.00 bond on multiple counts of 1st degree robbery during robberies and attempts at multiple espresso stands earlier this month. The attorney for the man tried to argue that because no weapon was seen, not even an outline, that the crimes should be considered 2nd degree robbery. The judge ruled four different times that the level of the crimes was 1st degree. The judge said the man was implying he had a weapon by his words, gestures and confession to police. The fact that no gun was located didn’t change how the barista felt during the robbery. It will now be up to Prosecutors to file formal charges against the man within 3 days.

Editor’s Update Wednesday Jan 18th 9:10 AM: A 30-year-old man from Everett will make his first court appearance this afternoon at a probable cause hearing. According to reports establishing probable cause obtained by the man is suspected of robbing the Columbia Bank on Lincoln street in Snohomish on Tuesday. He was arrested by Everett Police after coming out of an apartment on Lombard in Everett shortly after the bank robbery. He’d reportedly been identified by family members and police had been trying to keep up with him since Saturday. He was interviewed by detectives from several police agencies yesterday after his arrest and reportedly confessed to a half-dozen Espresso Stand robberies as well as the bank robbery.
