Lynnwood pot shop robbery suspect arrested in Seattle; others on the run

A pot shop robbery suspect is in custody after law enforcement from Snohomish County tracked him and several other armed suspects to Seattle on Thursday night.

Deputies said Euphorium marijuana shop in the 20900 block of Cypress Way in Lynnwood was robbed by several suspects at around 9 p.m.

The suspects’ vehicle was chased into Seattle, and then they fled on foot near Northeast 68th Street and Weedin Place Northeast near the Green Lake area.

Lynnwood police, Seattle police and King County deputies assisted in the search.

Law enforcement said other suspects are still on the run.

The chaotic scene attracted the attention of everyone in the neighborhood.

“Yeah, it’s definitely scary especially since there’s so many families and people living around this neighborhood. The fact that they abandoned their car a block away from our house doesn’t make us feel great, but that’s kind of life in Seattle sometimes,” said neighbor Stuart Fluharty.

The investigation is ongoing.
