Anyone in the vicinity of 220th Street Southwest and Highway 99 around 10 am Friday probably noticed the police activity involving both Shoreline and Edmonds police. Here’s the scoop, according to spokespeople from the respective police departments:

A woman tried to pass a bad check at the Bank of America branch in Aurora Village. The bank called 911 and the woman “got antsy and went out to her car, where a male was driving, just about the time we rolled up,” said King County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. John Urquhart.

Shoreline police pursued the car northbound on Highway 99 into Edmonds, where the passenger and driver bailed out, resulting in “a foot chase in the area of 220th and Highway 99,” where Edmonds police responded to assist, said Edmonds Police Sgt. Don Anderson.

The couple wasn’t found, Urquhart said.
Update:  The car, a Hyundai Tiburon, was dumped at Lynnwood Honda.  Lynnwood Police also assisted.  Neither suspect was caught.  The woman is white and about 25 years old.  The male is black and also about 25 years old.
