LYNNWOOD, Wash. - Deputies with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 27-year-old wanted fugitive from Everett in Lynnwood on Tuesday.
The Sheriff’s Office said IT received information that the fugitive was at a house on Manor Way in Lynnwood around 8:30 p.m. When deputies responded to the house, they said they could see the suspect was inside.
The suspect exited the residence minutes later and unknowingly walked right toward responding deputies.
When the deputies identified themselves and ordered the suspect to stop walking, “the suspect looked up, saw police and immediately turned around and began running in the opposite direction. Deputies chased the suspect on foot and caught up to him. The suspect pushed the deputies away in an attempt to flee,” the Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies said they ultimately located “25 pills, 5 grams of methamphetamine, 9 grams of heroin, a metal Taser with sharp spikes, a digital scale, and $1,100 in cash,” on the suspect.
The Sheriff’s Office said that, after deputies found the drugs, the suspect’s eyes closed and his body went limp.
Deputies administered one dose of Narcan and said the man woke up and said “I took too much heroin. Don’t let me die!”
A second dose of Narcan was then administered and the suspect regained consciousness.
The suspect was transported from the scene to the hospital for a medical evaluation. Deputies said he is currently in stable condition and will be booked into the Snohomish County Jail after he receives medical clearance.
