FERNDALE, Wash. — Several residents around the Tall Cedars Lane neighborhood asked Whatcom News about a large law enforcement contingent on the ground and a helicopter in the air Friday evening, November 19th.

Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Scott Huso told Whatcom News in an email that deputies accompanied by the WCSO SWAT team were there attempting a warrant service.

The person sought is a suspect wanted for 1st degree robbery by the Anacortes Police Department. It was believed the suspect was at a trailer on Tall Cedars Lane. 

Law enforcement were in the area between 9pm and 3am. A US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) helicopter was in the area providing air support. The suspect was not located at the time and Huso did not know if Anacortes Police had been successful in locating the suspect since.
