Suspect arrested in Marysville robbery

MARYSVILLE — Marysville Police detectives, with the assistance of the Department of Homeland Security and the Renton Police Department, arrested a 27-year-old Renton man in connection with a robbery that occurred in Marysville on Feb. 6. During the robbery, the suspect pointed a handgun at the occupants of a car, and identified himself as a law enforcement officer to gain compliance from the victims.

The suspect had been working for a local bail bonding company, and was trying to locate a subject who had skipped out on his bail. The suspect had placed a cell phone call to a female acquaintance of the bail-jumper he was looking for. This woman was also one of the subjects who were coming to Marysville to buy the EBT card of the robbery victims.

Through cell phone call logs, a Marysville Police crime analyst was able to obtain the identity of the robbery suspect. The suspect matched, very closely, the composite sketch that was drawn based on information provided by the robbery victims.

The suspect was arrested as he was driving away from his Renton residence. When interviewed by detectives, he denied taking any money from the Marysville victims. He was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on three counts of first degree robbery.
