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.

He was booked into jail for investigation of attempted vehicle theft, police said.
