Mentioned this on our Twitter Feed Tuesday night and here’s an update from Everett Police on an arrest of four juveniles all aged 16 and 17 who were captured in south Everett last night after trying to ram arresting officers with a stolen car to escape following a 2-day crime spree.

Last evening, in South Snohomish County, Everett PD’s Anti-Crime Team and Violent Crimes Unit located a stolen vehicle that was the suspect vehicle in multiple crimes in Everett and surrounding jurisdictions.

The driver of the vehicle rammed into a police vehicle in an attempt to escape and then all 4 occupants of the stolen vehicle fled on foot. One occupant threw a pistol as he fled.

Three of the vehicle occupants were quickly apprehended, the fourth fled into a wooded area. A track was performed by EPD K-9 Saxon and the suspect was located in very heavy brush. Due to all of the branches and blackberry bushes between the suspect and K-9 Saxon, the suspect was able to get away. With the assistance of a drone and multiple agencies, he was later located and apprehended with the help of Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Boyer and his K-9, Knox.

All four occupants of the vehicle were found to be juveniles and were booked into Denney Youth Center.
Suspect 1 was booked on charges of Assault 2, Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Hit and Run, Minor in Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, and resisting arrest.

Suspect 2 was booked for Minor in Possession of Alcohol and Obstructing a Law Enforcement Officer. Also booked on a charge of Robbery 2 for a strong-arm robbery that had occurred earlier in the day in Mountlake Terrace.

Suspect 3 was booked for Minor in Possession of Alcohol and Obstructing a Law Enforcement Officer.

Suspect 4 was booked for Minor in Possession of Alcohol, Obstructing a Law Enforcement Officer and probable cause from a previous case for Taking a Motor Vehicle without Permission 2.

The vehicle was impounded as evidence.

Absolutely outstanding work by everyone involved. This was a great display of teamwork!
