A malicious mischief report was filed March 4 in the 900 block of Northeast Ingram Street regarding a damaged window on a BMW 330i. The estimated loss was $200.
A Sammamish woman called police after she believed some mail thefts occurred between 2 and 3:30 p.m. March 4 in the 2900 block of 218th Avenue Southeast. The woman saw a white pickup truck with a lawnmower in the back pull up in front of her mailboxes, as did a neighbor. The women say they saw an Hispanic male wearing a bright green shirt and construction vest get out of the truck, while a white male stayed in the truck. The woman found a way to watch the truck unobtrusively, and said the Hispanic male took mail from a mailbox and hid it under his vest. Later on, someone else was able to get pictures of the truck, the driver and the truck’s license plate.
Not the brightest hitchhiker
At 1:45 a.m. March 6, a police officer was driving near the intersection of 212th Way Southeast and East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast. He spotted a man walking along the side of the road, and owing to the inclement weather, offered the man a ride. The officer ran the man’s name through police databases and found he had an outstanding warrant from Tukwila for trespassing. The officer met up with a Tukwila officer, and turned the man over to the Tukwila Police.
A man called to complain about people loitering in Pedestrian Park behind his business in the 100 block of Front Street North on March 5. Police made contact with the man and advised him the park was public, and police could not require people to leave.
A police officer noticed a woman rummaging through the back of her car in the 3300 block of 198th Place Southeast at 10:09 a.m. March 6. The officer started talking with the woman, who had telltale signs of both meth and heroin use on her body. The woman, whose license is suspended, said she was picking up a friend and was parked in front of the friend’s boyfriend’s house. Both the friend and boyfriend have outstanding warrants for their arrest. The police went to the door and knocked, but no one answered.
At 10:59 a.m. March 6, police received a call that someone had left fireworks in the donation box at Fire Station 83 on Issaquah-Pine Lake Road. The police retrieved the fireworks for disposal.
