Police Blotter Sept. 4
September 4, 2013
At about 12:25 a.m. Aug. 25, a police officer saw a vehicle traveling 58 mph in a 35 mph zone near the 3500 block of East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast. While the 16-year-old driver was sober, three passengers — a 16-year old boy and two 15-year-old girls — were not.
The driver was given citations for speeding and passing in a no passing zone. After testing, all three passengers were taken to the police station where they were fingerprinted and called their parents to come pick them up. The officer recommended they be charged with being a minor who has consumed alcohol.
A Sammamish man got multiple unwanted phone calls Aug. 21 from a person he did not know. The person spoke against the man’s religion.
The man blocked the number. He also noticed strange activity on an email account he dos not give out. He started getting newsletters he did not sign up for.
is too hard
At 11:19 a.m. Aug. 21, police officers went to the Illahee Trail for what looked like the remains of an explosion. They found debris in about a 50-foot radius including the remains of spray paint cans, a video game, pink duct tape and fireworks. There was also graffiti in the area. A nearby resident reported hearing a loud explosion between 11 and 11:15 p.m. the night before.
At 2:22 a.m. Aug. 21, police were making a check of the area behind QFC where they found three teens.
Two males and an unconscious female. The males said they had gotten the girl drunk and were caring for her. One of the males seemed drunk, too. The officer called the girl’s mother and for medical assistance. Once she was cleared by the medics, she was released to her mother. One boy was taken home to his grandparents and the other was sent on his way and advised not to drive his vehicle.
A woman reported that her husband had hit her in the head and she was having trouble hearing. Her husband had controlled her wrists and shoved her head onto the bed, leaving marks. She and her husband both said they had kicked each other earlier in the evening, but gave differing accounts about who kicked whom first. The man was arrested for assault. At that point, the woman said she did not want him arrested and said she wanted to know how she might protect him.
One of the classics
Police responded to a home on the 3000 block of 255th Avenue Southeast at 11:05 p.m. Aug. 24 when the homeowner reported a flaming bag on his doorstep. He said the flames were 2 feet high. After extinguishing it, he saw two teenage males running away. His daughter was having a birthday party, which he speculated was the impetus for the prank.
A woman on the 24000 block of Southeast 11th Place reported that there were two men on her front porch between 1 and 1:15 p.m. Aug. 21.
Both men were wearing green bodysuits and green masks. They rang the doorbell and then left. The homeowner had not been expecting any servicemen to come.
Fixed bike helps
Police reported to Sammamish landing where a homeless couple had gotten into an argument and the male had broken the woman’s bike. When officers arrived, they found he had agreed to fix the bike, and she no longer wanted to continue with prosecution.
Someone tried to break into a car on the 2400 block of 25th Avenue Southeast at about 8:55 p.m. Aug. 18. The car’s owner was alerted and able to chase the suspect off before he took anything. The car was damaged in the attempt.
