Warrant arrest

Sammamish police arrested a man on 700 block of 218th Place Northeast on three outstanding warrants at 8:15 p.m. Nov. 26. The man was a diabetic and had high blood sugar, so the Issaquah jail could not take him.

He was transported to Swedish for treatment and the officer asked to be informed when his condition was stabilized so he could be taken back into custody.


Faked checks

A Sammamish woman contacted the police when two separate checks on her account were written by someone other than her. She does not know how her information was compromised. She closed the account.



A police officer found a man driving 55 mph in a 35 mph zone on the 2700 block of East Lake Sammamish Parkway Northeast at 1:51 a.m. Nov. 23.

When the officer contacted the driver, he noticed the odor of alcohol coming from the car. Later, he blew a .111 on a Breathalyzer, higher than the legal limit of .08. The man also had a suspended license, so the officer arrested him on both charges.


Domestic dispute

Police responded when a Sammamish man hit his son in the back of the head with a closed fist, leaving a lasting mark. The injuries were not severe enough to merit a trip to the hospital. Police arrested the father.


Dude, you didn’t get a Dell

A Dell computer was delivered to a house on the 500 block of 225th Lane Northeast at 12:02 p.m. Nov. 25. By the time the homeowner arrived at 8:30 p.m., the computer was missing.


A pair of suspects

A woman on the 2400 block of 209th Place Northeast reported several pieces of jewelry worth a total of $3,200 had gone missing between Oct. 30 and Nov. 24.

She suspects either her cleaning lady or nanny, the only people with access to the home.


Identity theft

A Sammamish man reported that someone had opened a credit card and checking account in his name after he did a routine credit check. The accounts had been opened in October; he reported it after he discovered the problem Nov. 25.

Whoever did it, tried to take a line of credit from the credit card and deposit it into the checking account multiple times. The bank thought it was unusual and didn’t allow it. The accounts have been closed.


IPod gone

A student at Pine Lake Middle School reported someone had taken his IPod from his locker Nov. 26. No one had turned it into lost and found.



A man on the 500 block of 205th Avenue Northeast reported someone had damaged two vehicles in front of his house overnight between Nov. 28 and 29.

The man suspected his neighbor, saying there had been bad blood between them, and he had recently won a civil lawsuit against him.


He was warned

A police officer noticed a man sitting at the wheel of his vehicle at about 11:05 p.m. Nov. 22 near the intersection of Southeast Eighth Street and East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast.

The police officer recognized the man, who he’d dealt with before. He checked and found the man had a suspended driver’s license. The officer contacted the man and reminded him that his license was suspended. The man said he knew.

The officer went to a different part of the parking lot and waited to see if someone else would get in the car. No one did. The man drove off and the officer followed. The man parked his car at his apartment complex, and the officer contacted him again, asking why he would drive after he’d been warned not to.

The man stared at him blankly. The officer is recommending he be charged with driving with a suspended license. The car was legally parked, so the officer did not have it impounded.



Someone smashed a window and broke into a house on the 1000 block of East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast between 7:55 and 11:20 a.m. Nov. 27.

They took about $80,000 worth of jewelry and $50,000 in cash.


Tools taken

A Sammamish man reported that someone had broken into his employer’s vehicle and taken his personally owned tools between Nov. 22 and 25 on the 500 block of 225th Lane Northeast.

He placed the value of the tools, and damage done to the car at about $2,565.

Fight leads to other problems

Police responded when someone called to report a couple was walking near the intersection of Southeast Beaver Lake Road and 256th Avenue Southeast at about 3 p.m. Nov. 29, having an argument.

When officers arrived, they contacted the female half of the couple who told them her boyfriend had headed off along a nearby trail. A different officer found the man, who said he’d been having an argument with his girlfriend.

The officer found the man had an outstanding warrant for theft out of Renton, so he arrested the man.

While searching the man, he found paraphernalia used in smoking heroin and two methadone tablets. The man was taken to jail on the warrant and controlled substances violation.


The Grinch

wore pink

Police responded to a house on the 2900 block of 278th Avenue Southeast after someone stole a wreath from the front door at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 26. The homeowner had a security camera which captured footage of a late 90’s four-door vehicle driving up to the house.

A woman, described as heavy set, late 20s or early 30s with light hair just below her shoulders wearing a light colored sweat suit with the word “Pink” on it, got out of the car. She walked up to the door, took the wreath, went back to her car and drove away.
