Details sparse on Old Snohomish-Monroe Road incident
MONROE — People are still wondering what happened the night of July 24.
Several law enforcement vehicles and officers were dispatched to around the 16000 block of the Old Snohomish-Monroe Road around 9 p.m. Thursday, July 24; however, law enforcement officials could not say much as the case is still under investigation.
According to several eyewitnesses, Monroe Police dispatched not only several officers with guns drawn, but also a tracking K9.
Eyewitnesses said the number of police vehicles near the 16000 block of Old Snohomish-Monroe Road meant serious business.
“My wife was driving down (Old Snohomish-Monroe Road) when she saw a bunch of cop cars and then one kind of hidden off the side, like he was hiding or waiting to ambush someone,” Snohomish River Valley resident Tosh Rosford said. “She pulled over, got out of her car to ask what was going on, and he had his gun drawn. He told her she needed to move along, so she did.”
Rosford said the activity was fairly close to Monroe city limits, “before the veterinary clinic but after the nursery.”
On Facebook, the Monroe Burglary Watchdog Group speculated on what was going on.
One member wrote that the tracker dog and several officers came right through her back yard.
Monroe Police Deputy Chief Ken Ginnard said the incident was still under investigation and offered no further comment.
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office participated in the response, but sheriff’s office spokeswoman Shari Ireton could not offer comment.
More details regarding the investigation will most likely be released next week, according to officials.
