Marysville Police Arrest Cheney Men Repossessing Cars
MARYSVILLE, Wash. - Police in Marysville, Washington, have arrested three men from Cheney for investigation of kidnapping and robbery after the men allegedly tried to repossess two vehicles at gunpoint.
Police Cmdr. Robb Lamoureaux tells The Daily Herald of Everett that the men, 19, 33 and 45 years old, were in a pickup truck Friday night when they confronted a Mount Vernon man and his teenage in a sport utility vehicle outside a restaurant. Police allege the men pointed a handgun and a shotgun at the man and son, then took the boy out of the SUV and put him in the pickup.
Officers say another man got into the SUV and demanded to go to the man's home to repossess the other car. The Herald says police, alerted by witnesses, then stopped the car and truck and arrested the men.
