When two thieves from the Marysville Coastal Farm & Ranch business in Washington State fled with $ 1
When the men stormed out of the store into a Honda Civic last Saturday, they were first confronted by a passer-by who pulled his gun, police said. Undeterred by his weapon, the two suspects ran out of the parking lot and dropped the man onto the hood.
When the suspects left the scene, two more people shot at them in the mall with guns. The Honda blew out two of the car tires, police said.
The two suspects finally left the car with the four nail guns a few blocks from the parking lot, officials said.
Commander Mark Thomas of Marysville Police The Department told NBC News on Thursday that although the department's K-9 team needed two hours, they tracked down two suspects, ages 22 and 23, and put them in police custody. Now they are charged with robbery.
The question remained, however, who were the two people who shot down the tires of the Honda Civic.
After reviewing security cameras in the area, Cmdr. Thomas said after the incident: "The two citizens who fired the gun got into their cars and left the area." You even saw how the first police cars arrived on site.
The Marysville police are hoping for the two citizens who fired the shots on the Honda Civic.
"Without talking to them, we can speculate about motivation," Thomas told NBC News. The department asks the two people to report to the police and give an explanation of what they saw.
Thomas announced that witnesses had counted up to six people pulling weapons at the robbers, but he said the police could only explain three armed spectators.
The Four Stolen Nail Guns were returned to Coastal Farm & Ranch, which did not comment on the ongoing investigation.
