One too many
Police were called to a Sammamish home Jan. 12 after first responders needed help treating an intoxicated man who had fallen down a set of stairs. The man was bleeding from the head and needed up to 40 stiches but was angry and refusing to cooperate with first responders. Police stood by as the man was taken to the hospital for detox and a mental health evaluation.
A Sammamish resident reported that nearly $20,000 in jewelry had gone missing from his home in October or November of last year. The resident told police he suspected a contractor that had been doing home repairs in the home, as the pieces of jewelry went missing during the same timeframe. The case remains under investigation.
A resident on the 19100 block of Northeast 51st Street reported that a man had approached him in his driveway and offered to repair some damage to one of his vehicles at around 12:30 p.m. Jan. 5. The resident told police that the man was aggressive and confrontational in his sales pitch and the resident was skeptical of the man’s claim that he could do the work at a discounted rate. The salesman, who was driving a Dodge Ram, left after a neighbor reminded him that soliciting in Sammamish is illegal without a license.
Police documented several pieces of graffiti on a traffic sign, retaining wall and city owned building near the 2400 block of 228th Avenue Southeast. The spray-painted tags showed up the morning of Jan. 10. Police have no suspects but note that the tags appear similar to those found near the Pine Lake Shopping Center and Sunny Hills Elementary in recent weeks.
A resident on the 21600 block of Southeast 32nd Place reported that someone stole a recently delivered package from his front porch at around 11:45 a.m. Jan. 8. The resident reported that he saw a teal Infiniti pull up just after a UPS driver had dropped off a package. A man got out of the vehicle, grabbed the package and then left the scene. The suspect is described as a 6-foot-2-inch male with a dark complexion and thin build. The case remains under investigation.
of court order
Police documented a text message that a Sammamish woman received from her ex-boyfriend Dec. 31. The message appears to violate the terms of a no-contact order between the two parties following a domestic violence incident. The case has been forwarded to prosecutors.
A Sammamish woman reported Jan. 5 that someone had recently hacked into her phone account. The woman told police she had received a text message indicating there had been a change to her phone account. Soon after her phone stopped working. The phone company informed her that someone had opened up an iPhone 5 on her account. The phone company deactivated the new phone and reactivated hers but would not provide information on who had accessed her account. The woman wanted the incident documented for future reference.
A Sammamish resident reported that someone had used their credit card to buy a $50 gift card to Macy’s Jan. 6. The resident had cancelled the card and the case remains under investigation.
