LYNNWOOD, Wash. – Three males were taken into custody following an armed robbery that occurred in Lynnwood just after 12 p.m. today. Deputies responded to the 20000 block of 10th Ave W. where a USPS mail carrier was robbed at gunpoint. The suspects fled the scene in a white passenger vehicle stolen out of Kent. A deputy located the suspect vehicle in the Lake Forest Park area and initiated a short pursuit during which the suspects threw packages out of the vehicle’s window. The deputy lost track of the suspect vehicle and shortly after located it parked unoccupied. A K9 track located the 3 male suspects hiding behind a house in the 18500 block of 25th Ave NE in Shoreline. All 3 males were taken into custody without further incident. 

This is still an ongoing investigation.
