Lynnwood police help catch pharmacy robber

For the fifth time since last November, Edmonds Pharmacy on 212th Street SW (near the Lynnwood border) was robbed. But this time the suspect didn’t get away.

“The suspect was last seen leaving on foot from the pharmacy,” Edmonds Police Sergeant Don Anderson said. “Edmonds patrol units arrived in the area within two minutes and immediately began conducting a search for the suspect.”

A Lynnwood police dog also helped with the manhunt. The suspect and his vehicle were located a short distance away. It’s unclear if he’s the same person responsible for the earlier robberies.

Edmonds-Woodway High School — which is across the street from the pharmacy — was briefly put into lockdown during the search.
