EDMONDS, Wash. – Two people are behind bars after allegedly stealing a car and then breaking into a home in Edmonds Saturday evening. Police tell FOX 13 they are still looking for a third suspect.
Police initially alerted the public about the incident on X at 9:02 pm. The post stated that, “multiple suspects fled from a stolen vehicle and into an innocent person’s residence.”
FOX 13 spoke with the homeowner off-camera.
He asked not to be identified but said, “I immediately ran outside with my hands up. I didn’t have to call police because they were already there.”
This all went down in the 8700 block of Main Street.
After a few hours of calling for the suspects to come out of the home, police say both surrendered and were taken into custody.
