Eleven days after fleeing the scene from a thwarted robbery attempt at an Issaquah Arco station, a female suspect was arrested in Kenai, Alaska.
Task force members of the U.S. Marshal’s Service captured the positively identified female on March 21, according to a release from the Issaquah Police Department.
The woman fled Washington state and efforts to locate and capture her were turned over to the marshals. An arrest warrant was issued by King County Superior Court on March 15.
The IPD used images caught during the robbery to enlist the public’s assistance in identifying the woman. In the release, they credited citizens for aiding in the location and arrest.
She will be booked as a “fugitive of justice” and extradited back to Washington.
While attempting to rob the convenience store, at 1400 N.W. Sammamish Road, with what appeared to be a handgun on March 10, the 19-year-old Issaquah resident was disarmed by an employee.
She pulled a knife and the clerk again disarmed her. The employee sustained no injuries; the suspect ran away on foot.
