Driving the red-eye

At 3:17 a.m. Dec. 1, a police officer pulled over a vehicle that ran a red light at the intersection of Southeast 20th Street and 118th Avenue Southeast. The officer could smell marijuana. The driver consented to having his blood drawn. Police are waiting for test results before forwarding the case information to prosecutors.


Left behind

Police noticed a vehicle sitting near the intersection of Southeast 13th Way and 227th Avenue Southeast for some time. On Dec. 6, the officer ran the vehicle’s plates and found they’d expired in May. There was debris around the vehicle and the pavement under it was a different color. The officer had the car impounded.

Passed out

At about midnight Dec. 6, two people were found asleep in a vehicle in the Sammamish Highlands. Two officers had to shake the people inside awake. The male driver pointed to his lap, which had cash, heroin and syringes on it. Several other officers were called in to assist. The car belonged to the female passenger. The officers found a scale with heroin residue, a methamphetamine pipe, two GPS units, 6.9 grams of black tar heroin, a vial with heroin transferred from three syringes, knives, a .22 caliber magazine, 0.8 grams of methamphetamine, 20 Seroquel pills, two spoons used for heroin, a screwdriver set and $954 in cash. The man was arrested. The woman was taken home. The car was left at the gas station, with the attendant’s permission.

A man who came to the Issaquah Police Department lobby Dec. 6 said he wanted to give officers a gun to be destroyed because he did not want it anymore. Police took possession of the weapon for destruction.


Two stolen bikes

A report was made in the 1500 block of Northwest Gilman Boulevard Dec. 7 of two stolen bikes. The reporting person estimated the total loss at $1,800.



Police were dispatched to the 200 block of Northwest Dogwood Street for a complaint of loud Christmas music coming from a residence Dec. 8. Officers located the noise and observed that the music was not very loud.


Singing ghosts

Police responded to a noise complaint of people singing in the 100 block of Front Street North Dec. 12. Upon arrival, officers found three females on the back smoke area talking quietly. They stated they weren’t singing nor had they heard any. Police wrote in the report that the same person routinely calls for this and officers have never found anyone singing.

    “Police wrote in the report that the same person routinely calls for this and officers have never found anyone singing.”

    Why doesn’t Issaquah’s finest go visit the person that keeps calling in these bogus calls? How many hundreds, if not thousands of dollars has this person cost the taxpayers? Fraudulent calls for emergency services should result in hefty fines and/or jail time.
