Police say they’ve arrested a suspect who robbed two men of as much as $5,000 they won at a casino.
The men, both in their 20s, had taken their winnings from Quil Ceda Casino on the Tulalip Reservation and planned to head to a McDonald’s to get some food Sunday morning. But they noticed that someone they had spoken with at the casino was following them.
Instead, they went to a different fast food joint, a Jack in the Box in Marysville, and saw the same man there. Police say the man got in their car, pulled out a gun and demanded the winnings.
The suspect then got in his own vehicle and took off. Police couldn’t find the suspect, but eventually identified him using surveillance video from the casino. Mill Creek police found him and arrested him after a short foot chase.
Marysville police say the man had a large amount of cash when he was arrested.
