Four juveniles were taken into custody after an early morning pursuit in and around Mill Creek on Monday, June 17, 2019.
At around 7:45 am a witness reported seeing an assault inside a vehicle driving erratically near the 13200 block of Bothell-Everett Highway.
South county sheriff's deputies responded to the area and located the passenger vehicle approaching 132nd Street and attempted a traffic stop.
The vehicle accelerated at a high rate of speed and deputies pursued the car near 180th St SE and 35th Ave SE. The vehicle continued back towards 132nd Street.
The vehicle lost control and crashed in the 3500 block of 132nd Street SE and caught fire.
All four people inside the vehicle fled the scene on foot.
Deputies set containment of the area and the driver and all three passengers were located and taken into custody. Three males and one female were arrested and booked into Denny Juvenile Justice Center.
The vehicle is confirmed stolen and suspected of being involved in three early morning robberies.
