Stolen Vehicle Recovery, DUI, Drugs
224th St E & 30th Ave E, Spanaway
A patrol deputy passed a vehicle driving without headlights, so he turned around to conduct a traffic stop. When he turned around, the vehicle sped away, driving into oncoming lanes to pass traffic. When he reached Mountain Hwy, he tried to take a wide right turn, but spun out due to the slick roads. His engine died and he couldn’t get the vehicle restarted. As the deputy approached the driver’s door, the suspect quickly locked it. The deputy had to break the window to gain control of the suspect, who was taken into custody. A records check revealed that the car had been stolen from the Everett area. The suspect had several Xanax pills in his pocket. When he arrived at the jail, another search was completed. The booking deputy found 45 fentanyl pills hidden in his shoe and in another “special” hiding place. The 31-year-old suspect was booked for possession of a stolen vehicle, reckless driving, driving while suspended, and unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
