Police collar suspect in latest of five Edmonds Pharmacy robberies

The Edmonds Pharmacy was robbed again Monday morning — the fifth time since late November 2010 — but this time, police have a suspect in custody.

According to Edmonds Police spokesperson Sgt. Don Anderson, police responded at 9:15 a.m. Monday to a report of a robbery at the pharmacy, located directly across from Edmonds-Woodway High School in the  7600 block of 212th Street Southwest. The high school was placed in locked-down status as a precaution, Anderson added. 

The robbery suspect was last seen leaving on foot from the pharmacy. “Edmonds patrol units arrived in the area within two minutes and immediately began conducting a search for the suspect,” Anderson said. Police also requested assistance from a Lynnwood police K9 unit to track the suspect . 

Police detectives located the suspect’s vehicle at 9:40 a.m. and found the suspect a short distance away, where they took him into custody.  The high school was taken out of lock-down at 10 a.m., Anderson said.

Anderson said the investigation is ongoing and more information will be provided as it becomes available.

  1. Once again our outstanding and efficient Edmonds Police have solved a puzzling series of crimes. I’m amazed to see no other comments applauding their fine efforts since we seemed to have numerous detective wanabes who offered their thoughts while the EPD was quietly getting the job done. Great performance by a superb organization!
