NOOKSACK, Whatcom County (AP) — A group of fleeing robbery suspects was ahead of pursuing officers when they decided to paint their getaway car a new color, but they forgot to change the license plate on the vehicle.
The Bellingham Herald reports the alleged driver, 22-year-old Westley C. French, outran the law for five more hours this past weekend.
French and his alleged accomplices used those fleeting moments of freedom to give his green Nissan 240 SX a new coat of black spray paint. But they neglected to swap out the car’s South Dakota plates when border agents found the car and the suspects outside Nooksack Valley High School.
Everett police spokesman Aaron Snell says the suspects were wanted in the beating of two men during a car robbery.

Parts of Western Washington could be in for some wild weather Saturday night and Sunday morning.
Areas near the coast and the northern interior may see sustained winds between 30 and 40 mph, with gusts up to 60, according to a “high wind warning” from the Weather Service. The winds are expected to kick in about 9 p.m. Saturday and continue until 9 a.m. Sunday.
At the same time, heavy rain over the Olympics and North Cascades has triggered a flood watch along several Western Washington rivers, including the Stillaguamish in Snohomish County, the Nooksack in Whatcom County and the Skokomish in Mason County.
