Shoplifting turns into a foot chase through city hall

A 22-year-old Everett man was trying to make his getaway after he allegedly shoplifted some electronic equipment from a store near 46th and 196th on Tuesday. Police found him in a nearby park and the foot pursuit was on.

The suspect ran to the Lynnwood Civic buildings at 191st and 44th. He went around the library, senior center, rec center and then inside city hall and council chambers. He was finally caught as he was leaving the building.

No bystanders were hurt.

He was arrested for theft and resisting arrest, but he had just been released a few days earlier for burglary.
