Patrol officers arrest two men after an early morning robbery spree in south Everett.
Two males, both 19 years-old, were arrested for multiple counts of robbery after officers found their vehicle in the 3600 block of 105th St SE. Officers worked a robbery call after a victim reported being robbed at gunpoint by two males in the parking lot of the south Everett Fred Meyer at 5:30 a.m. The suspects left in a SUV.
While officers investigated, a second victim called at 5:50 a.m. when she was robbed at gunpoint in the Everett Mall parking lot. The vehicle descriptions were similar.
As officers canvassed the area, a third victim reported that just after 6:40 a.m., two men approached her with guns in the south Everett Costco parking lot and demanded property but left when she refused to give them anything. The suspects and vehicle description matched earlier incidents.
Just before 8:00 a.m., a fourth victim called 911 to report he had been robbed at gunpoint just before 4:00 a.m. and provided additional information on where the suspects might be. As officers searched, they located a Chevrolet Trailblazer and detained two males.
Both males and their vehicle were positively identified as being involved.
Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit are investigating the robberies.
The Trailblazer has been seized pending warrants to search it along with entering the residence.
Both males are expected to be booked into the Snohomish County Jail on probable cause for multiple counts of robbery.
