Lynnwood police arrest suspected vacuum thief

The man suspected of stealing expensive vacuum cleaners in Lynnwood was arrested this morning at his Everett home.

Police say the 19-year-old suspect and another man who was arrested earlier have been entering local stores and stealing Dyson vacuums, then returning them for a refund. The high-end vacuums are valued at more than $600 each.

The pair have reportedly hit several Kohl’s stores and a Wal-Mart. The first suspect is also implicated in another incident at Home Depot.

Detectives say tips from the public led them to the suspect.
