Suquamish man arrested for running out on cab

SUQUAMISH — Timothy J. Lagrandeur, 23, of Suquamish is charged in Kitsap County District Court with third-degree theft.

A taxi driver reported that on March 1, he picked up a man on State Route 303 and drove to South Street and 4th Avenue in Suquamish. According to the report, the man told the driver he was going in the house to retrieve cash from a safe, but never returned. The bill was $60.

The suspect was described as a 20-year-old white male with a “deformed right arm from elbow to shoulder,” a red hoodie and black jeans. A Suquamish Police officer recognized the description as a man who lived in the area and had a DOC felony warrant for his arrest.

A Kitsap County sheriff’s deputy went to the suspect’s relative’s house, where Lagrandeur was taken into custody.

Lagrandeur reportedly admitted he skipped out on paying the cab driver. He was booked into Kitsap County Jail for escape from community custody, failure to appear and third-degree theft on $1,000 bail, later raised to $2,500.
