What started out as a hit-and-run collision for Edmonds police Friday afternoon ended with the arrest of a suspect wanted on a variety of charges in Mountlake Terrace, including eluding police, assault and hit-and run.
Edmonds police said that after the hit-and-run, which police witnessed, the suspect fled in a car and then on foot. A King County Sheriff’s Office Air Support helicopter was dispatched and police set a K-9 track but were unable to capture the suspect.
Then, later in the afternoon Edmonds police caught the suspect allegedly burglarizing a house in the 9000 block of 236th Street Southwest.
Mountlake Terrace Police Commander Pat Lowe said the suspect is a Mountlake Terrace resident. The man also was wanted on a Department of Corrections warrant, Lowe said.
