Here’s a crime story featuring diligent police work.
Two weeks ago a woman was walking through the parking lot at the QFC at Roosevelt Way Northeast and Northeast Northgate Way when, police say, a man grabbed her purse.
“A brief struggle ensued as the woman tried to hang onto the purse, but the suspect was able to pull it away and run off. Witnesses observed the suspect get into a black SUV. They also provided a license plate of the vehicle,” according to a police press release this morning.
The suspect in the Sept. 23 incident was identified, but could not be found. Robbery detectives distributed a wanted bulletin, and the 25-year-old man was arrested about 2:30 this morning by Lake Stevens police.
His SUV was impounded and he was booked into King County Jail for investigation of robbery.Tweet
