The suspect was inside of a vehicle near Lynnwood Gun when the employees intervened, according to the Lynnwood Police Department.
Two employees at a Lynnwood gun store thwarted a possible vehicle theft Sunday when they held a suspect at gunpoint, police said.
The Lynnwood Gun employees, both armed, intervened when they saw a man inside of a vehicle they knew was owned by someone else, according to a news release from the Lynnwood Police Department.
The duo confronted the suspect, a 33-year-old man, about 5:45 p.m. in the 20800 block of Highway 99 and held him at gunpoint until police arrived, the department said.
“Fortunately, the suspect complied and was taken into custody without further incident,” the release stated.
