The North County Property Crimes Unit was launched early in 2015 as a collaboration between the Sheriff’s Office and the police departments of Marysville, Lake Stevens, and Stillaguamish Tribe.
The unit is composed of property crime detectives from each agency, with support from the Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
Together with a crime analyst, they collaborate to track down and prosecute the most prolific thieves in the county. The unit focuses on crimes such as burglary, major theft, fraud, and trafficking in stolen property, as well as crimes that stem from these types of incidents. The unit operates out of the Marysville Police Department.
