If the van’s

The officer gave them a chance to put some clothes on before talking to the obviously drunk male half of the couple. The officer advised the man not to drive, but the man was more focused on returning to his activities than on listening to the officer. The officer let the couple go about their business and drove a short way off. About 10 minutes later, the van drove past and the officer pulled it over. he arrested the man for DUI. The woman refused transport and decided to walk home.

Just passing through
A police officer noticed a man had slept under a tree in the corner of the park & ride the night of May 23-24. The officer informed the man there was no camping in the city, and that Tent City IV was nearby. The man said he knew about Tent City IV, but that he was leaving to head to Seattle anyway.
A Sammamish woman reported May 23 that a series of unusual events had happened in her backyard on the 21000 block on Northeast 18th Street over the last two years. She found several items, like an unusual rock or gardening tools or a cat collar in her yard, and lawn ornaments had been broken. A police officer went to the house and said he suspected it was either animals, children, or the weather causing at least some of the problems. He gave her advice on how to better secure her yard.
