Police observed the green Honda Civic had severe damage to its passenger side. The car’s male driver was observed to have a cut on his forehead that was bleeding, caused by the collision, and appeared to be heavily intoxicated. Two bystanders stated they had witnessed the hit-and-run and confirmed that the male driver was involved in it. Both parties reported he had made a left turn without yielding to oncoming traffic, which caused the collision. They stated he then left the scene and drove to QFC where he parked and remained until police arrived. The man admitted to drinking a beer earlier and refused medical attention for the cut on his forehead.

MTHS had been in contact with the former student’s probation officer, who had indicated that the juvenile has made statements indicating that he has access to a firearm.

23600 block 56th Avenue West: The male driver of an orange Subaru Crosstrek was observed traveling at a high rate of speed and driving erratically, then temporarily eluded police by failing to stop at a posted stop sign and accelerating through a narrow neighborhood road. While police did not pursue him for safety reasons, the man was arrested after the suspect vehicle pulled into the parking lot at the 56th Avenue Market. The subject was wearing, and the car also contained, several clothing items that had security and/or price tags still attached to them. A records check revealed that the man was not licensed to be driving. The key located in the car’s ignition appeared to have a tag similar to what car dealerships use to identify which key belongs to a vehicle. Police contacted the Subaru’s registered owner, who resides in Seattle, and learned that the car was involved in a collision a couple of days before. It had then been towed to a tow yard located in Seattle, where it was supposed to remain until it could be moved to a repair shop. The manager of the towing company stated the car was supposed to be inside of their fully fenced lot and no one should be driving it. As a result, police determined was probable cause to arrest the male subject for operating a motor vehicle without a license and without identification, reckless driving, possession of a stolen vehicle and failing to obey an officer. He was transported and booked into the Snohomish County Jail. The Subaru was towed back to the tow yard by an employee of the company.
