Amateur chemistry

Stolen copper

An estimated $700 of copper was reported stolen Aug. 29 in the 900 block of Northeast Park Drive.


Showing off

Police received a report of car playing loud music Aug. 29 in the 200 block of East Sunset Way. Police contacted the driver and he apologized and explained that he was just showing his friend the stereo system. The driver was asked to keep the music down and he complied.


Former party home

A woman called police regarding an attempted break-in at her home in the 400 block of 212th Way Southeast at 9:30 p.m. Aug. 25. A house sitter reported to the homeowner she’d heard someone trying the door handle, but that person was scared off by a dog. The homeowner also said she’d seen people prowling the area. She said her home had been vacant and used as a party house prior to her remodeling and moving in a year ago. She fears there may be transients in the area who do not realize the home is now occupied.


Not an honest mistake

The manager of the Pine Lake QFC reported that a woman had stocked items in the top and bottom portions of her cart before going to self-checkout at 4:20 p.m. Aug. 27. She said she’d forgotten her card and went to get it. When she returned, she only paid for items in the top portion of the cart. The manager said she has shoplifted from his store before. She will not be permitted to enter the store for a year and police recommend she be charged with third-degree theft.


This actually happens?

A woman came to Sammamish police at 3:37 p.m. Aug. 26 to turn herself in on two outstanding warrants. She had a $1,100 warrant from Issaquah and $1,000 from Redmond. She was transported to the Issaquah Jail.



Police recommend a man be arrested for assault after an incident at about midnight Aug. 26 in the 3000 block of 230th Lane Southeast. Multiple people reported that while a group was at an apartment there, one person hit two other people in the face before leaving. Police noticed each of the two exhibited bruising and seemed to have been injured very recently. Police noted that person has two outstanding warrants for his arrest, one regarding a felony charge.



The manager of Domino’s Pizza called police to report he believes one of the assistant managers has been adding money to the tip lines of some transactions. He is investigating how many times this happened. He thinks the assistant may be aware there is an investigation.


Ammo dump

A man came to the Sammamish Police station at 2 p.m. Aug. 24 to turn in about 200 rounds of ammunition left to him after his father died. He wanted it disposed of properly.


Lost face

A man in the 27100 block of Southeast 22nd Way reported someone broke into his car overnight between Aug. 28 and 29. The person took a removable stereo faceplate worth about $150 and its remote control.


Vehicle break-in

Between Aug. 28 and 29, someone entered a truck parked in the 500 block of 241st Lane Southeast and took tools and a toolbox worth about $2,235.



Someone made unauthorized charges on a Sammamish resident’s credit card Aug. 12. Three of the changes were at a Nordstrom store in Illinois; the fourth was made at Nordstrom online. The woman does not know how her information was compromised.
