An Everett Police officer takes the woman back to his car for the trip to the Snohomish County Jail

It took the work of four different law enforcement agencies but an Everett woman is in the Snohomish County jail facing multiple felony charges after leading Sheriff’s Deputies on a high speed chase from south Everett east across the Snohomish Valley to Monroe at speeds that reached a reported 100 miles and hour.

It started in Everett when an Everett Police officer spotted a woman who was wanted on felony charges driving a car near Silver Lake. That car sped off when the officer tried to stop the woman and the Everett officer did not pursue even after the driver reportedly nearly hit his car.

About 15 minutes later the car was spotted by a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Deputy who followed it east heading into the Snohomish Valley. Other deputies responded and when they tried to stop the car the woman sped off. A Deputy tried to put out spikes to pop the tires but the car avoided those and took off on Highway 9 north at speeds estimated at 90 miles an hour.

The car then got southbound on Highway 2 with the driver reaching speeds estimated at 100 miles an hour with the woman reportedly flipping off deputies who were giving chase.

The Washington State Patrol joined in and Monroe Police were able to stop traffic at Fryelands Blvd and Highway 2 and put down spike strips sending the car into the ditch south of Fryelands.

It took a few minutes but the woman was taken into custody. No one was injured in the chase and apprehension. The woman is expected to make an appearance in Everett District Court Thursday afternoon.
