Everett Police take a suspect into custody

Everett Police made an arrest on Sunday afternoon following a trailer fire on Bruskrud Road in south Everett, Washington.

Just before 2:30 PM Snohomish County 911 began receiving multiple calls of a trailer on fire in the 1100 block of Bruskrud Road near the Interurban Trail. Engine 7 responded and was able to quickly extinguish the flames. There was no one in the trailer at the time of the fire.

Everett Police responded and in probable cause papers filed with the arrest the officer wrote he was contacted by a man who said he witnessed a man first break out the windows in the trailer and then leave in a small car. A few minutes later the witness told the officer he saw the man come back and pour a liquid out of a black jug and set the trailer on fire. The man then drove away.

Later a second man approached the officer and advised the trailer was his and he lived there with his girlfriend and that was where they made their home.

An Everett Fire inspector arrived and began an examination of the trailer. While the investigator was there a car drove into the driveway of a nearby apartment and the witness contacted the Everett Police officer on scene and advised it was being driven by the person he had seen set the fire.

The Everett Police officer stopped the car and contacted the driver. After an identification by the witness the driver of the car was taken into custody. He was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on multiple charges and is expected to go before a judge for a probable cause hearing Monday afternoon.
