The LP reported that a male was currently in the self-checkout registers and had scanned a few items but not all that was in his cart.  Also, he had opened small packages of drill bits and other merchandise and these items were concealed on this person. While officers were en route, the LP had confronted the male suspect in the parking lot.  This male ran to the rear of the parking lot, got into the driver’s seat of a gray colored SUV, and fled out of the parking lot.  An officer arrived in the area and was able to stop the vehicle.  Search of the suspect’s person and consent was granted to search his vehicle, and the stolen merchandise was recovered.  The male suspect was issued a trespass warning from Home Depot and PSOs assisted, transported, and booked the suspect into Snohomish County Jail for theft.


22100 Block 17thAve SE: On Oct. 14, Washington State Patrol informed BPD of its response to a motorcycle versus pick-up collision on the N/B I405 off-ramp at SR 527 (in front of the park-and-ride). This was initially provided as information, however, shortly thereafter WSP informed BPD an involved subject fled on foot and may have “car-jacked” someone at the nearby McDonalds. Moments later, BPD Dispatch received report of a car-jacking having occurred at the Extended Stay America, during which a firearm was discharged. WSP units briefly pursued a white Nissan passenger car, believed to have been driven by the car-jacking suspect/motorcycle rider (involved in the nearby collision). The car-jacking (robbery) victim was found unharmed at Extended Stay. BPD officers would learn from the victim that a firearm was discharged, but by a witness/bystander attempting to disable the Nissan as the suspect fled. Police would later learn a round impacted and disabled one of the vehicle tires. WSP, SCSO, and Bothell units flooded the north Bothell area and located the abandoned Nissan in a business park near 180th St SE and SR 527, in unincorporated Bothell. A wallet was left on the driver’s seat belonging to a 32-year-old male. Officers located the owner of the wallet climbing a tree some 100 feet to the east. Despite the advice of officers, the male climbed to near the top of the 50-foot tree while wearing one shoe (the other left at the motorcycle crash) and bleeding from a leg wound. Negotiators responded, and with the assistance of multiple fire and law enforcement agencies, the male removed himself from the tree (with the help of a ladder truck) and was taken into custody.
