Report: 60-year-old Everett firefighter arrested for investigation of sex crimes with minor

SEATTLE — A 60-year-old Everett firefighter and paramedic was arrested in Seattle on Wednesday for investigation of sex crimes involving a minor, the Everett Herald reported.

The newspaper said the firefighter was being held without bail in the King County jail. He was not being named because he has not been charged and, according to the Herald, he has no felony history in Washington.

The firefighter, who has worked for the city of Everett since 1991, was placed on leave, Everett city spokeswoman Meghan Pembroke told the Herald.
