The Olympia Police Department arrested two suspects, a 28-year old man and a 20-year old woman, on suspicion of first-degree robbery and felony harassment early Wednesday morning, arrest records show.
The two suspects are accused of robbing an acquaintance at gunpoint at Sunrise Park in West Olympia. Officers responded to that report on Tuesday afternoon. The suspects got $40 out of the victim’s wallet, according to scanner traffic.
The victim was able to give officers the names of the suspects, the description and license plate of the car they were driving, and the name of the hotel where they usually hang out. Officers found that car at the hotel late Tuesday night.
The suspects were taken into custody at the La Quinta Inn on Park Center Ave in Lacey. Lacey Police officers assisted Olympia with the contact. The two suspects have been booked into Thurston County Jail on charges of 1st Degree Armed Robbery and Felony Harassment. The male suspect also has a warrant for forgery.
Tumwater Police took a man into custody early Tuesday morning after he attempted to lead officers on a pursuit through a residential neighborhood, according to scanner traffic.
Officers attempted a traffic stop on the vehicle, a 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, around 3:00 am near 69th Ave and Riverdale St, in the Munn Lake area of Tumwater. The vehicle immediately picked up speed and ran several stop signs, in an apparent attempt to elude officers.
Unfortunately for him, the vehicle suffered a mechanical issue, officers said, and it came to a stop in the 7100 block of Desperado Dr SE. The driver was cooperative and had his hands in the air.
The 36-year-old man was taken into custody on suspicion of felony Eluding a Police Vehicle. Records show that he also had warrants for domestic violence assault and a protection order violation. He is being held in the Thurston County Jail.
