Arrest made in Smokey Point Subway robbery

ARLINGTON — On Wednesday, Oct. 24, officers from the Stillaguamish Tribal Police Department assisted the Arlington Police Department in locating and detaining a 25-year-old homeless man in relation to the Smokey Point Subway Restaurant robbery that occurred at 8:03 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 2. The man's last known residence was in Arlington.

The arrest of the suspect was made possible as a result of the public's help in identifying him after reading about him and seeing video surveillance footage of him in the news. Evidence left behind by the suspect in this incident was also critical to the resolution of this case.

The suspect is being booked into Snohomish County Jail on one count of robbery in the second degree, a Class C felony punishable by confinement in a state correctional institution for five years, or by a fine in an amount fixed by the court at $10,000, or by both such a confinement and fine.
