Police Blotter Dec. 4
December 5, 2013
Sammamish Police reported to a 911 cell phone call from the 21700 block of Northeast 29th Street at 11:41 a.m. Nov. 20.
It appeared the call came from somewhere on the golf course at Sahalee Country Club. The officer could find no one in the area who made a call.
Police officers responded to a complaint about a suspicious vehicle parked on the 4300 block of 212th Avenue Northeast at 7:15 p.m. Nov. 19. The officers found three minors in the car, which smelled of alcohol, tobacco and marijuana.
As the teens exited the vehicle, the officer caught sight of a water bong. One said she had just prepared it for smoking marijuana, but had not yet smoked.
Eventually, the officer found some marijuana in the pocket of one the vehicle’s driver. He was arrested for minor in possession, while the other two were let go.
The officer noted the young man did not show any remorse, believing that marijuana was legal, in spite of the fact he is under 21.
Between 5:30 and 6 p.m. Nov. 21, a white van pulled up to a home on the 1600 block of 216th Avenue Southeast. At the time, a middle school-aged boy was home, watching a movie.
He saw the van back up the driveway and heard the garage door open. He heard a noise in the garage, and a moving light, which made him think it was a flashlight. He yelled “get out of here” at the people in the garage, who then left. At about 6:15 p.m., the boy’s mother stopped by. He related the story to her, and she called the boy’s father, who then came home.
The father said it appeared nothing was missing. He said his children frequently forget to lock the garage door, and he is working with them on it.
The boy described the people in the van as two white males and a white female all in their 30’s. They were all wearing baggy jeans. The female was the driver and had short, maybe blond-ish hair.
Yes, that’s what
At about 1 a.m. Nov. 22, a police officer noticed a car driving erratically near the intersection of Southeast 32nd Street and Issaquah-Pine Lake Road. When the officer pulled the car over, he noticed the driver’s breath smelled of alcohol. The driver blew a .248 on a portable Breathalyzer test, more then thee times the legal limit of .08. When he saw the number, he asked: “Does this mean I’m DUI?” Turns out, yes.
The officer arrested the man for DUI and had his vehicle impounded.
A gray, 2004 Jeep Liberty was reported stolen from the parking lot at the Boulder Creek Apartments at the 4200 block of Issaquah-Pine Lake Road. It went missing between 7:15 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Nov. 20.
The registered owner of the vehicle was an Everett man, whom the reporting party did not know. He said he’d bought the car from a local dealership in July.
Sammamish Police got a call from the jail in Des Moines that they had in custody a woman with an outstanding warrant for driving with a suspended license.
The jail said it would hold the woman until a space opened in the Issaquah Jail. At about 4:15 p.m. Nov. 20, Sammamish Police were notified a space had opened, so an officer retrieved the woman and brought her to Issaquah Jail.
He’ll be sorry when the zombies come
A Sammamish man turned in four boxes of ammunition to the Sammamish Police station at 8:55 a.m. Nov. 19.
Sammamish police got a call from Swedish Issaquah that a man had been brought in who was the victim of a hit-and-run. The man was walking home at about 7:30 p.m. Nov. 17 and was crossing the street walking northbound across Southeast 13th Way near 228th Avenue Southeast. He remembers making it about three-fourths of the way across when he was hit by something. A friend found him and transported the man to the hospital. He had non-life threatening injuries. When an officer investigated the area, the only unusual thing he found was a strawberry-shortcake like dessert scattered across the sidewalk and a paper plate about 10 feet away from it.
An employee of Sunny Hills Elementary School found a mountain bike in bushes on the school property at 8:30 a.m. Nov. 14. School officials also checked with Pine Lake Middle School, but no one claimed the bike.
A woman on the 1600 block of West Beaver Lake Drive Southeast had her mailbox smashed sometime overnight between Nov. 16 and 17. The officer believes it had to have been something fairly sturdy, as the mailbox, and another nearby which was also smashed, was made from heavy gauge steel. The owner of the second mailbox reported hearing a loud bang around midnight or 1 a.m.
The old toilet bomb
At about 1:18 a.m. Nov. 17, someone tried to blow up a honey bucket at a construction site near the 1800 block of West Beaver Lake Drive Southeast. When the officer arrived, he found the interior was still smoking.
