LYNNWOOD — Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputies spotted a suspected stolen SUV on Interstate 5 around 1 a.m. Thursday, Sheriff’s spokesperson Shari Ireton told Q13 FOX News.

The collision flipped the Blazer on its top, Ireton said. Police and fire department units responded and all lanes of Interstate 5 were blocked.

Police took a man into custody, but released the woman, who was also in the SUV. No one, including deputies, were injured.

Police found suspected drug paraphernalia and stolen mail inside the Blazer, Ireton said.
