Police arrest three suspects for Talus burglary

April 20, 2010

A fast-food run landed three Issaquah residents in trouble with the law April 5.

Issaquah Police arrested the suspects — a pair of 16-year-old boys and a male, 18-year-old exchange student — after officers said they burglarized a Talus home March 31.

Police said the men entered the occupied residence in the 700 block of Bear Ridge Drive Northwest between 8 and 9 p.m. The homeowners realized the incident had occurred after a victim discovered a purse missing from the kitchen. They determined someone had entered the home through an unlocked door.

A credit card from the purse was used at a fast-food restaurant not long after the purse disappeared. Police used surveillance video from the restaurant to identify the suspects.

Officers arrested the suspects April 5, and then booked them at the Issaquah City Jail and released them.

City budget: Bus service, maintenance to be delayed

December 15, 2009

Issaquah City Jail will add a corrections officer, but parks and road improvements will be scaled back in the 2010 budget headed to the City Council next week.

The plan reflects difficult decisions as the council sought to balance savings and services amid the recession. City residents will notice changes large — fewer traffic signal upgrades — and small — only two city newsletters will be mailed next year.

Mayor Ava Frisinger proposed a leaner budget for next year for a city with fewer employees and capital projects planned. After several tweaks, the City Council plans to adopt the $99 million budget Dec. 21.
