Detectives investigate home invasion robbery in Marysville area

MARYSVILLE — No one was injured in a home invasion robbery that happened the morning of Aug. 23 in the 8400 block of 27th Ave. NE in unincorporated Marysville. Detectives believe the two male suspects were attempting to target a specific house, but entered the wrong one instead.

The two suspects went into the house at about 7 a.m. A teenage girl was asleep inside. She was a visitor at the house, not a resident. The homeowners were asleep in a nearby building on the property. The female homeowner walked into the main house as the robbery was happening. The suspects were armed with a rifle and a handgun and threatened to hurt the two women, but fortunately no one was injured.

The suspects stole some electronics from the house and fled in a pickup truck which was found in a nearby neighborhood. The truck was determined to be stolen out of Marysville. Neighbors spotted two men removing items from the stolen pickup and putting them into a second vehicle.

Based on information provided by those neighbors, detectives ended up at a house in the 9100 block of 94th Drive SE in Lake Stevens. The second suspicious vehicle was there. Detectives got a search warrant, searched the house and found evidence from the home invasion robbery in Marysville.

No one has been arrested yet. The case remains under investigation. The two suspects are described as white males in their mid-20s to early 30s. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the sheriff's tip line at 425-388-3845.
