UPDATE, 5:43 p.m. | The search for a third suspect has been called off because his identity has been confirmed according to Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Shari Ireton. Ireton said he is still at large, though.

Police officers chased after three home burglars in the Brier area this afternoon with canine units and assistance from several police departments, according to Shari Ireton, spokeswoman for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

After Brier police officers responded to a 911 call at about 2:30 p.m. and caught the three trying to burglarize a home on the 23000 block of 27th Place West, two female suspects were apprehended and one male is still on the loose, Ireton said in a release.

She said the suspects clipped another car that crashed onto a roadside ditch during the chase. That driver did not sustain serious injuries.

The suspects then abandoned the vehicle on Locust Way somewhere in either Bothell or Kenmore, threw two handguns into nearby bushes and fled on foot, according to Ireton.

The search for the remaining suspect, who they think is on foot, focused on a neighborhood along 61st Avenue Northeast at Northeast 193rd Street in Kenmore.

Dozens of officers involved in the manhunt established a perimeter around that intersection several blocks in each direction.  Officers went into back alleys and behind an apartment complex on 61st Avenue before pushing east from that intersection, startling neighbors out walking their dogs, collecting their mail and returning home from work.

Police have also scoured parts of Lake Forest Park.
