Laxatives were probably not what they had in mind.
Early Oct. 26, a group of men forced their way into an apartment in the 1000 block of W. Casino Road. They threatened the people inside with a handgun and struck a man across the head with a crutch, according to court records.
The robbers made off with jewelry, cell phones and prescription medication — but probably not the kind they sought.
“This was not random,” Everett police Sgt. Robert Goetz said Thursday. “It appeared they were looking for prescription medication, but pretty much all they got were laxatives.”
Police in November arrested two men in connection with the robbery. On Thursday, they picked up a third man in the north Broadway neighborhood, Goetz said.
He was booked into Snohomish County Jail for investigation of first-degree robbery.
The other suspects also were being held for investigation of robbery and other charges.
A judge in Everett District Court on Monday refused to reduce bail for the first two suspects. Both are being held on $100,000 bail.
Bail for the third man was not set Thursday afternoon
