Man arrested for selling drugs across the street from the M’ville police department

MARYSVILLE – Marysville Pro-Act officers arrested two people on drug-related offenses today, but they didn’t have to go far – one was across-the-street from the police department.

Cmdr. Mark Thomas said the suspect in recent months had moved to the house across from the Public Safety Building on 43rd Avenue NE. Police allege that he had been selling drugs from the house in the last couple of weeks, so they developed probable cause for a search warrant.

The arrests came at about 10:30 a.m. when the man drove away in a white Cadillac Escalade. Police followed him a couple of blocks, then pulled him over on 76th Street, Thomas said. As a second unit pulled up, the suspect decided not to comply, then made a U-turn and struck the patrol car push bar while fleeing back to his house.

When he arrived, police were waiting.

The suspect was taken to the Snohomish County Jail in Everett for investigation of possession with intent to deliver narcotics.

A woman at the house was detained, arrested on a misdemeanor drug paraphernia charge and booked into the Marysvsille jail across the street.

Police closed 43rd near Grove Street for about 20 minutes.

The Pro-Act team is a proactive unit that uses traditional and non-traditional approaches to swiftly address criminal issues and arrest repeat offenders responsible for a sizable amount of crime.
