Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office deputies and members of the Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force are searching for a 38 year-old man suspected of stealing a red Ninja motorcycle. Several law enforcement personnel, as well as two helicopters, are currently searching in the area where the motorcycle was abandoned, near the 2700 block of 116th St NE, west of Marysville.
During the search, which started around 1:30 this afternoon, two deputies were stung several times by either bees or yellow jackets. Both deputies were treated by aid units at the scene and are expected to fully recover.
The search is still underway and members of the public are asked to avoid the area, if possible. The suspect is described as being a white male, approx. 6 feet tall, with brown hair and wearing a dirty t-shirt.
