A man wanted for kidnapping and robbery led Pierce County sheriff’s deputies on a high-speed pursuit this afternoon before rolling his car in Sumner.
Deputies spotted the vehicle just after 4 p.m. and tried to pull over the man, who is wanted in Snohomish County, but the man refused to stop.
“He was seen getting in the truck with a bulletproof vest and high-powered weapons,” sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said. “We tried to stop him and he rolled his car.”
It’s unclear where the chase started but it ended at valley Avenue East and Elm Street East in Sumner.
The man was arrested and agents from the U.S. Marshal’s Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are assisting with searching the truck.
The man was wanted in connection with a home invasion robbery that occurred in December in Marysville that left one robbery suspect dead, according to the U.S. Marshal’s Office.
