The suspect is 25-year-old man from Everett. After receiving several tips, police learned that he had checked himself into Stevens Hospital for an unknown reason.

With detectives on his trail, the suspect left the hospital this morning wearing blue scrubs. Officers broadcast the information to other police agencies, and Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputies arrested him at an Everett park-and-ride lot after he got off a bus.
