Edmonds police quickly nab three burglary suspects

A group of men attempting to rob an Edmonds business didn’t get very far, police said.

The burglary, which occurred at about 3 a.m. Wednesday, triggered an alarm, according to a statement released by the Edmonds Police Department. Officers arriving on the scene minutes later spotted a suspicious man, according to the release.

“Interestingly enough, the 30-year old Brier man was carrying a portable two-way radio from which the police officer could hear urgent sounding conversation,” police spokesman Mike Blackburn wrote in the release. “The officer also noted that the suspicious subject was carrying a cellular telephone that was operating in stopwatch mode.  The elapsed time displayed on the man’s stopwatch corresponded with the same time that had passed since the burglary occurred. ”

Police arrested the man and two other suspects, a 27-year old Edmonds man and a 31-year old Lynnwood man, according to the release.

A fourth suspect is still at large.
