Arlington Police, with assistance from a Snohomish County Sheriff's Office K-9 team, were able to locate and arrest two suspects who took off after a routine traffic stop on May 17.

At approximately 2:20 p.m. on Wednesday, May 17, an Arlington police officer on routine patrol initiated a stop for a minor traffic violation in the 20400 block of 97th Avenue NE. The vehicle's driver initially stopped the vehicle for the officer and then took off at a rapid rate of speed.

Officers initiated a short pursuit, which was then called off when the male driver and female passenger bailed out of the vehicle. Snohomish County Sheriff's Office K-9 team of Deputy Wallin and K-9 Ronin responded and quickly located the driver. After having numerous chances to surrender and choosing not to, the suspect was bitten by K-9 Ronin and subsequently taken into custody. He was treated at Cascade Valley Hospital for minor injuries.

The search for the female suspect continued until approximately 3:35 p.m. when an Arlington police officer located her walking in the 9700 block of Tveit Loop Road.

The male driver is a 26-year-old Arlington area resident. The female passenger is a 24-year-old Arlington area resident. Both suspects will be booked into Snohomish County Jail on several felonies including possession of a stolen motor vehicle and obstructing a law enforcement officer.
