Deputies are searching for an armed robber who threatened a homeowner south of Bellingham with a gun and took his cellphone around 11:30 Tuesday morning, May 26.
The owner of a home on the 700 block of Old Samish Road caught the man mid-burglary. The burglar then robbed the owner. He was accompanied by four other people — two men and two women — who drove from the scene in a red Chevrolet Cavalier sedan while the robber ran off, according to the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office.
Whatcom County Undersheriff Jeff Parks said the homeowner went to a neighbor’s house to call 911. Parks said there is evidence of a burglary that occurred prior to the cellphone robbery.
