Let them off easy
A police officer saw a group of juveniles on the dock at Sammamish Landing Park at 6:17 p.m. May 14. One of them seemed to have dumped something in the lake as the officer was approaching them. The area smelled of alcohol and a nearby cooler contained beer. None of the teens was willing to claim ownership, so the officer threatened to begin processing them all for minor in possession. One of the juveniles eventually said it was his. The officer talked to the teenager who apologized for having lied initially. The officer could not determine who had actually been the one he saw dumping a can in the lake, so he warned the juveniles and tossed the beer in a dumpster.
