Take my car… please
A man reported his car was stolen overnight Nov. 25 from the 100 block of Northwest Gilman Boulevard. Officers took the report and the car was listed as stolen. Shortly after, police received a call indicating his wife had taken the car home.
A student at Pine Lake Middle School reported someone had taken his iPod from his locker Nov. 26. No one turned it into lost and found.
Someone smashed a window and broke into a house in the 1000 block of East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast between 7:55 and 11:20 a.m. Nov. 27. They took about $80,000 worth of jewelry and $50,000 in cash.
He was warned
A police officer noticed a man sitting at the wheel of his vehicle at about 11:05 p.m. Nov. 22 near the intersection of Southeast Eighth Street and East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast. The officer recognized the man. He checked and found the man had a suspended driver’s license. The officer contacted the man and reminded him that his license was suspended. The man said he knew. The officer went to a different part of the parking lot and waited to see if someone else would get in the car. No one did. The man drove off and the officer followed. The man parked his car at his apartment complex, and the officer contacted him again, asking why he would drive after he’d been warned not to. The man stared at him blankly. The officer is recommending he be charged with driving with a suspended license. The car was legally parked, so the officer did not have it impounded.
Fight leads to other problems
Police responded when someone called to report a couple walking near the intersection of Southeast Beaver Lake Road and 256th Avenue Southeast at about 3 p.m. Nov. 29, having an argument. When officers arrived, they contacted the female, who told them her boyfriend had headed off along a nearby trail. A different officer found the man, who said he’d been having an argument with his girlfriend. The officer found the man had an outstanding warrant for theft out of Renton, so he arrested the man. While searching the man, he found paraphernalia used in smoking heroin and two methadone tablets. The man was taken to jail on the warrant and a controlled substances violation.
The Grinch wore pink
Police responded to a house in the 2900 block of 278th Avenue Southeast after someone stole a wreath from the front door at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 26. The homeowner had a security camera which captured footage of a late-90’s four-door vehicle driving up to the house. A woman, described as heavy set, late 20s or early 30s, with light hair just below her shoulders, wearing a light-colored sweatsuit with the word “Pink” on it, got out of the car. She walked up to the door, took the wreath, went back to her car and drove away.
