EVERETT – Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit arrested a female in connection with a recent robbery and assault.
On the morning of October 24th, officers were dispatched to the 800 block of Hawthorne St. to check the welfare of a 36 year-old man at his residence. Officers entered the home and found him awake but unresponsive. The man was transported to a local area hospital where it was discovered he had been shot and two bullets remained lodged in his head.
During the course of the investigation, detectives with the Major Crimes Unit searched the man’s residence and discovered his wallet was missing.

The charges were tracked to area businesses where it was confirmed the female had used the accounts and she was identified.
At about 3:00 p.m. this afternoon, detectives found and arrested the 21 year-old Concrete, WA female in Mount Vernon, WA. During an interview, she admitted to the shooting and stealing the victim’s wallet. The female has been booked into the Snohomish County Jail on probable cause for charges of robbery, assault and identity theft.
