Detectives with the North County Property Crimes Unit are seeking help from the public to locate Joseph Nasby and his girlfriend, Sarah Dreben. Both are suspected of stealing chainsaws and other gas-powered equipment.
Detectives recently recovered stolen chainsaws from a residence at the 5100 block of 87th Ave NE in Marysville and learned that the equipment had been sold by 25-year-old Nasby and 37-year-old Dreben.
Detectives believe the two target homes with open garages, sheds and out building and steal weapons, weed trimmers, and leaf blowers, in addition to chainsaws.
Anyone with information about Nasby and/or Dresden are asked to call the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office anonymous tip line at (425-388-3845).
