Mountlake Terrace Police Blotter: Pursuit, Buglary, Code violations


Here are an assortment of Mountlake Terrace police reports from the last week or so.

On Wednesday, 8-31-2011 at 7:02 PM, patrol units were advised that the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) was in a vehicle pursuit southbound on I-5 and requested assistance with setting spike strips at I-5 and the Snohomish/King County line. Before our officers had a chance to respond, SCSO advised that the suspect vehicle had exited 220th St SW from I-5. The vehicle then turned north on to 64th Ave W and turned westbound on to 2222nd St SW where it stopped at the 6500 block. When the vehicle stopped, the driver exited and fled southbound through yards. As the suspect fled from the vehicle, City of Mountlake Terrace police officers arrived on scene and assisted with setting containment. The suspect was caught a short time later. City of Mountlake Terrace Narcotics K9 conducted a sniff on the vehicle where he gave a positive response. The vehicle was seized by SCSO for a search warrant.

On Friday, 9-2-11 at 11:45 AM, officers assisted the City of Edmonds Police Department (EPD) with the arrest of a burglary suspect. An EPD officer was trying to stop the suspect’s vehicle in the area of SR 104 and Meridian Ave North. The suspect left his vehicle at 203rd NE and Meridian Ave North. The male suspect was last seen running through Holy Rood Cemetery and the surrounding neighborhood. One of our officers coordinated the responding officers and the containment for the search. Additional officers from King County, Snohomish County, City of Brier and a City of Lynnwood K-9 assisted in the search for the suspect. The suspect was eventually located at 244th and I-5 by a City of Brier police officer and with assistance from our officers the suspect was taken into custody. The suspect was turned over to the City of Edmonds Police Department.

On Saturday, 9-3-11, at approximately 8:00 AM, the regional SWAT team was deployed in unincorporated Mukilteo on a firearms/drug/burglary case for City of Edmonds Police Department (EPD). EPD detectives had obtained a search warrant for a single family dwelling in the 12700 block of Mukilteo Speedway. Information on the home suggested that the occupants consisted of the primary suspect, a twenty year old convicted felon, and a “Juggalo” roommate. There actually ended up being three males and two females in the residence. After knocking and announcing the warrant search, two males immediately surrendered. With three other subjects still inside, the SWAT team deployed a noise-flash diversionary device inside the front door with no response. The team then performed a break and rake on two bedroom windows resulting in the surrender of a female. The team had to introduce two canisters of OC gas into the primary suspect’s bedroom in order to convince him to exit the home. Information gathered from the other suspects suggested there was another female inside. The team masked up and conducted a search of the interior. The female was found inside and taken into custody without incident.

On Tuesday, 9-6-2011, Code Enforcement observed a property located in the 23000 block of 55th Ave W having multiple code violations. Code Enforcement observed an inoperable vehicle in the driveway elevated on blocks. Vehicle parts, including tires, were also observed being stored in the driveway. Code Enforcement had been monitoring this property for a couple of weeks to ensure that the vehicle was in fact inoperable and elevated on blocks for an extended period of time. Also observed were a boat and trailer and a pickup truck parked on an unimproved grass surface next to the driveway. These are all violations of the nuisance vehicle code. A violations case was opened and notice was sent to the property owner. A follow up inspection will be performed on 9-20-2011 to check for compliance.
