A pursuit of a stolen vehicle has ended with two men in custody, two damaged patrol vehicles and one slightly injured deputy.

At around 10 a.m. this morning, a call came into 911 from a woman who was following behind her stolen vehicle on Lowell-Larimer Rd east of Everett.  Deputies located the vehicle and attempted to stop the suspects with a PIT maneuver.  The maneuver was unsuccessful and the deputy who attempted it sustained minor injuries and damage to his patrol car. Deputies then attempted to use a spike strip to stop the car, also unsuccessfully.  Finally, the suspects accidently struck a parked patrol vehicle near the intersection of 129th Pl SE and the Bothell-Everett Highway, and the pursuit ended.
The two men, both believed to be in their 20’s, are in custody.  No other information is currently available.
