FUGITIVE CAPTURED August 13, 2013 —
The Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force says, “third time’s a charm”, after capturing Timothy Lussier on Tuesday afternoon.

He was arrested in Marysville, after the Task Force says he tried escaping from them — again — this time on a bicycle.

The Task Force had attempted to arrest Lussier on two previous occasions.

Lussier has several outstanding felony warrants, including assault, unlawful possession of firearms and possession of stolen property.

He’s also accused of acting like a cop when he and another guy robbed a tobacco store in Everett earlier this year.




The Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force is on the hunt for a man they say led them on a high speed chase in a stolen van through Lake City and Ravenna last week.

The task force says Lussier is ‘armed and dangerous.’

He and another guy are accused of impersonating police officers to rob a tobacco store in Everett last May. They even had fake badges and search warrants. Cops say they pepper sprayed the store owner, then stole his car.

He’s 33 years old.

If you see him around Marysville, around abandoned homes in the Clearview/Woodinville area, or Gold Bar, where he has family, call an anonymous tip into:
