Since the initial espresso stands were robbed in Everett, detectives have investigated the cases and worked to identify a suspect. On the 14th, two people saw local news coverage and provided information that identified a possible male suspect and his vehicle which matched descriptions from several robberies.
As detectives gathered evidence, the Columbia Bank in Snohomish, WA was robbed earlier today. It was believed the suspect was responsible.
This afternoon, the suspect was arrested and interviewed by detectives where he admitted to robbing the bank and espresso stands. The suspect has been booked into the Snohomish County Jail on multiple counts of robbery (RCW 9A.56.200.1A).

EVERETT – Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit are investigating a series of espresso stand robberies. Since Jan. 4, 2017, there have been three possibly related espresso stand robberies in Everett.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 20’s-30’s, thin build, with (possibly short) brown hair, and brown eyes. Reports described him as having a “scruffy” face or facial hair and “sunken” eyes. He was seen wearing a brown hoodie and baseball cap with dark pants and work boots. In each robbery the suspect implies that he has a handgun.
There have been two similar espresso stand robberies in Marysville and Arlington where the suspect’s description is the same as the Everett robberies. All three agencies are working together to determine if these robberies are related. The suspect photo is from the Arlington robbery.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Everett Police Department TIP LINE at (425) 257-8450 or Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-TIPS.
