GRANITE FALLS, Wash. – The pursuit of a suspected motorhome thief that began earlier tonight in South Everett ended in Granite Falls when the suspect crashed into a house and several vehicles. The Mountain Loop Hwy is currently closed at Gun Club Rd as Collision Investigation Unit detectives investigate.
The incident began earlier today around 5:30 p.m. after reports that a stolen motorhome was seen in the the South Everett area. Everett Police located and followed the vehicle. The motorhome driver made his way to SR 9, where Washington State Patrol troopers and deputies from the Sheriff’s Office attempted to stop the vehicle. The driver continued northbound to SR 92 and towards Granite Falls, allegedly swerving at WSP, Sheriff’s Office and civilian vehicles along the way. The driver is believed to have lost control of the motorhome, left the roadway and collided with a house and several vehicles off of the Mountain Loop Hwy between Quarry and Gun Club Rds. An adult male who was in one of the vehicles was transported to an area hospital with unknown injuries.
After a brief foot pursuit, the 33 year-old male suspect was located in a nearby home and taken into custody around 6:40 p.m.
