Police K-9 unit tracks down suspect who threatens mother with gun

Redmond police arrested a male suspect who threatened his mother with a gun after being denied money last night near her home in the 8900 block of Red-Wood Road.

The incident began around 9:37 p.m. when the suspect waited for his mother to return home and pushed his way into the house when she arrived.

After the 25-year-old suspect asked for money and his mother refused, he pulled out the gun and they argued. When she told him she was going to notify the police, he bolted from the home. The suspect did not live at the home and wasn’t invited there, according to Redmond Police Department (RPD) public information officer Andrea Wolf-Buck.

The woman called the police, and after they arrived, the RPD K-9 unit tracked the suspect and found the gun in a nearby garbage can. They continued the search and located the suspect in a bush by the Jack in the Box in the 16200 block of Northeast 87th Street, near the Bella Bottega 11 Regal Cinemas.

Officers took the suspect into custody and placed him under arrest on suspicion of possession of a stolen firearm, possession of a weapon capable of causing bodily harm with a domestic violence enhancement, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of stolen property. When searching the suspect, police found some checks that were not his.

There were no injuries at the home or where the man was apprehended.
