Last week, our Anti-Crime Team (ACT) and Violent Crimes Unit (VCU) observed a male they knew had a felony Department of Corrections (DOC) warrant parked in a vehicle in North Everett.

The male had a known lengthy criminal history record, with assistance from the Violent Offender Task Force (VOTF), they attempted contact with the male. As contact was initiated, the male immediately fled and rammed one of the Police vehicles, turned and struck a second Police vehicle. Two Snohomish County Deputies were injured when their vehicle was rammed by the male. He then attempted to ram his way free a third time as officers approached on foot. Officers were able to immobilize the vehicle and take the male into custody.

The male’s vehicle was towed to the impound yard and searched. The following are the items which were located during the search:
• Approximately 10,000 fentanyl pills (combined total of what was located on his person incident arrest and in the vehicle)
• Approximately 183 grams of methamphetamine
• Approximately 24 grams of suspected fentanyl powder
• Drug dealing paraphernalia
• A stolen Springfield Hellcat pistol reported stolen out of Seattle
• $4,078
• Homemade explosive device

The male was booked into the Snohomish County Jail, ultimately he was charged with: 3 counts of Assault 2nd degree, Possession of an Explosive Device, Malicious Mischief 1st degree, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm 1st degree, Possession of Stolen Firearm, 2 counts of Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substances Act w/ Intent to Distribute, Community Custody Violation, 4 counts of Driving While License Suspended 1st degree, 2 counts of Hit and Run w/ Injury, Obstructing a Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting Arrest, Possession of a Dangerous Weapon, Reckless Driving and his DOC warrant.

This was an absolutely outstanding collaborative effort on the part of out ACT, VCU and VOTF teams!! We are so thankful no one was seriously injured during this incident and our thoughts are with our Snohomish County Deputies for a speedy recovery!!! A huge shoutout for keeping our community safe and for the dangerous work you do every day!
