On Monday, January 4, alert employees at a store on 120th Avenue Northeast immediately notified us of a theft in progress. Officers got to the area in time to stop suspects in a vehicle, leaving the scene.
A third suspect was found inside the store. A fourth suspect was located in a nearby vehicle.
Officers recovered a substantial amount of methamphetamine, heroin, and fentanyl pills; packaged for sale. They also recovered a firearm and two handgun magazines.
Four suspects were taken into custody, one of them had an outstanding warrant for theft.
This isn’t a “big case” for Bothell Police. Many Bothell residents are surprised to learn; incidents like this are fairly typical. But thanks to a strong partnership with the Bothell community and business owners, the outcome was also typical; stolen property recovered, and illegal drugs and taken off the streets.
We’re all working together to keep Bothell a great place to live, work, own a business and raise kids. We’re proud of our officers. But we can’t do it without you. So, thank you, Bothell.
It’s just another day on the job, but it’s a job we believe in. And we’re grateful every day for your support and partnership.
