SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash.  The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office in collaboration with Everett Police Department and Arlington Police Department are investigating 5 armed robberies that occurred in Snohomish County within the past week.

  • Thursday, December 13, Arlington Police responded to a robbery at 7-Eleven in the 500 block of N. West Ave just before 2:30 a.m. A male suspect described as being in his 40s, approximately 6’1” with a thin build, brandished a silver semi-automatic handgun and made off with cash.
  • Thursday, December 13, Everett Police responded to a robbery at 7-Eleven in the 800 block of Broadway Ave. just after 5:30 a.m. A male displayed a revolver to the employee and demanded money. The suspect is described as an adult white male, about 6’, wearing gloves with his face covered.
  • Friday, December 14, Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a robbery at Trafton General Store in the 12100 block of SR 530 NE in Arlington just after 3 a.m. A man entered the store wearing an animal onesie, black hoodie, camo ski mask and black gloves. The suspect displayed a gun and pepper spray to the clerk and demanded cash.
  • Sunday, December 16, Arlington Police responded to a robbery at 7-Eleven in the 500 block of N. West Ave just after 3:30 a.m. A male suspect described as being in his 40s, approximately 6’1” with a thin build, brandished a shot gun and made off with cash.
  • Tuesday, December 18, Everett Police responded to a robbery at Pizza Hut in the 4800 block of Evergreen Way at about 10:15 a.m. A male displayed a revolver to the employee and demanded money. The suspect description is similar to the previous Dec. 13 Everett robbery. 

K-9 tracks to locate the suspect(s) were unsuccessful and it is believed in each incident the suspect fled in a vehicle waiting nearby. In the Arlington robberies, detectives believe the suspect’s oversized vest has a pillow underneath in an attempt to disguise his appearance. Detectives continue to work together to identify the individual(s) involved in these incidents.

If anyone has any information about these incidents, please call the Sheriff’s Office anonymous tip line 425-388-3845.
