Not quite William Tell

A Sammamish man reported an arrow had been launched through the rear window of his home in the 2800 bock of 247th Avenue Southeast at 4:19 p.m. Jan. 3. The officer found the arrow next to the window, which had one broken pane. The homeowner said he did not want to pursue criminal charges, only to make sure it did not happen again. The officer checked the area and found nothing. Later, a young man called police to admit he had shot the arrow. He thought it was stuck in a tree, which the officer thought was plausible, noting the vegetation in the area. The officer facilitated the exchange of contact information between the two parties.


Stolen vehicle

A 1987 Honda Accord was reported stolen Jan. 4 in the 1100 block of Northwest Gilman Boulevard. The report estimated the total at $900.

Lost in tweak-lation

Police received a report Jan. 5 about a male subject hanging around outside a store in the 900 block of Northwest Gilman Boulevard for an extended period. Officers found the man, who appeared to be “tweaking,” according to the incident report. The man said he did meth a couple of days before. He thought he was in Kirkland, and had no idea how he had gotten to Issaquah.


Stolen Honda

A 2000 Honda Civic was reported stolen Jan. 5 in the 1800 block of 12th Avenue Northeast. The report estimates the total loss at $5,000.


Stolen scanner

A diagnostic scanner tool, worth an estimated $6,000, was stolen Jan. 6 in the 100 block of Northeast Gilman Boulevard.


Porch theft

A man in the 20800 block of Southeast Seventh Place reported someone took a pair of packages from his front porch at 5 p.m. Jan. 7. The homeowner has security camera footage of a car driving up to the house, a male getting out of the passenger side and running up to the house, and then running back to the car.
