Pot stop

A 19-year-old Sammamish woman and 21-year-old Issaquah man were caught in possession of marijuana and a glass pipe in a car on the 1800 block of 225th Place Northeast at around 8 p.m. Jan. 11.

Police approached the vehicle after a neighbor complained that the occupants were smoking marijuana inside.

The pair admitted to possessing marijuana and turned over a bag containing 3.5 grams of the drug, as well as the pipe.

Police secured the drugs for disposal and advised the two to walk to their nearby homes.

Motor theft

The motor went missing sometime between Dec. 24 and Jan. 3. Police have no suspects.


A 23-year-old Redmond man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after being pulled over on the 4400 block of East Lake Sammamish Parkway at around 2 a.m. Jan. 4.

The man was pulled over because his vehicle had expired tabs. The man told the officer he had been at The Joker Pub in Issaquah and had drank “a few beers.”

The man performed poorly on field sobriety tests and blew a .15 on a breath test, over the .08 legal limit for driving.

His vehicle was impounded and he was driven to his apartment in Redmond.

Another copper theft

The copper top was stolen off of a stone statue marking the entrance to the Timberline Ridge neighborhood overnight Jan. 3. Police have no suspects.


A 19-year-old Sammamish resident was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after being pulled over near the corner of Northeast 17th Street and 211th Way Northeast at around 12:20 a.m. Jan. 7.

The man, who was clocked driving 47 mph in a 35 zone, smelled of alcohol and marijuana and admitted to having just come from a party at a friend’s house.

The officer could smell the odor of unburned marijuana in the vehicle, but the man produced a doctor’s note authorizing him to possess the drug.

The man blew a .06 on a portable breath test. He was arrested on suspicion of DUI and released several hours later.

Rude awakening

Open door

An officer on patrol found a garage door open at a home on the 1400 block of 271st Place Southeast at around 1:30 a.m. Jan. 9.

The occupants did not answer the door, so police left them a door hanger reminding them to close their doors at night.

Domestic violence

A 37-year-old Sammamish woman was arrested on suspicion of fourth-degree assault after allegedly slapping her husband and hitting him with a broom and shoe.

Police responded to the couple’s home the evening of Jan. 7 after the husband called police.
