Second arrest made in Lake Stevens home-invasion robbery
LAKE STEVENS, Wash. -- While one suspect remains in the hospital recovering from a gunshot wound suffered during an attempted home-invasion robbery last week in Lake Stevens, a second suspect is now behind bars after being arrested early Monday.
According to the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office, a 32-year-old man from Arlington admitted to driving three other people to a home in the 7000 block of 126th Strive Northeast Feb. 25 -- buying zip ties and duct tape on the way -- and driving away with two of them after the would-be robbery went bad.
According to the Sheriff's Office, two masked men burst into the homeowner's garage around 6 p.m. and tried to rob the homeowner and a friend. The homeowner's friend reportedly shot one of the masked men, and the other ran off.
The suspect arrested Monday was booked into Snohomish County Jail for investigation of assault and kidnapping.
Detectives are still looking for a 33-year-old woman and 27-year-old man in connection with the robbery.
