May 14, 2013
A white Subaru station wagon was broken into April 26 in the 1800 block of 10th Avenue Northwest. An estimated $5,000 was stolen from the vehicle.
Personal bubble burst
A woman reported to the police April 27 that she was approached by a contractor working in the 200 block of Northwest Gilman Boulevard. The man hugged her and kissed her on the cheek, and it made her uncomfortable.
A report was made April 28 in the 700 block Northwest Gilman Boulevard of a suspicious man. Police made contact with the man who said he was waiting for his wife and he was passing time by working on his Frisbee golf.
Driving while revoked
An officer pulled over a vehicle near the intersection of East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast and 212th Way Southeast at 11:23 p.m. April 28, after a random check showed the vehicle’s owner had his license suspended. Officers contacted the driver who said the situation should have been resolved. He was only a few blocks from his destination. Officers allowed the man to walk to his destination, and the man said he would have someone else come retrieve the car.
A woman came to police at 11:25 a.m. April 30 to report she’d gotten a harassing phone call in the past week from someone claiming to be from the government, but she thought it was a scam and hung up. She then got another call from a man who said he knows her husband. The man said he was traveling to India and was asking for advice about what to see and do there. He then shifted the conversation to a graphic sexual discussion, saying he’d been given permission by her husband to date her and have intercourse with her. Once he started that, she told him not to call back and hung up. He called back twice. During the conversation, she noticed the man made some mistakes about personal information, which led her to believe he did not know her husband as well as he had said. She said she could recognize the voice if she heard it again. The woman is afraid of the caller’s intentions and is staying at a friend’s house.
Police responded to reports of an audible burglar alarm in the 800 block of Windsor Drive Southeast at 2:07 p.m. April 28. The officer walked around the house and found a rear door open. The officer said it appeared as if it had been left open accidentally. When he contacted the homeowner, the owner said he had locked the door and closed it. He also said there were pry marks on the door frame. Nothing was damaged or missing.
Officers responded to the 26600 block of Southeast Duthie Hill Road at 7:56 p.m. May 1 when a motorist hit a deer. The deer survived, but was badly injured. An officer then euthanized the animal.
Police stopped a vehicle in the 4000 block of 228th Avenue Southeast at 2:57 p.m. May 3. Officers found the driver had a warrant for her arrest for driving with a suspended license. Officers transported the woman to the Issaquah Jail. A friend of hers was going to come to get the vehicle. After waiting 30 minutes, they called the friend, but he said he could not find the vehicle so he went home. Officers then had the vehicle impounded.
