Police blotter June 11
June 11, 2014
Ring and run
At about 11 p.m. May 23, three boys rang the doorbell of a man on the 1300 block of 270th Way Southeast and ran off.
The man chased the boys in his car and caught up to them a few blocks later. Accounts differ at that point.
The boys say the man yelled profanities and threatened them with a baseball bat. The man denies making the threat. All parties agree there is a bit of a history behind the incident.
All also agreed to have the incident documented without any charges being filed.
Mom’s in denial
A Sammamish police officer noticed a vehicle fail to come to a complete stop and pulled it over at about midnight on 216th Avenue Northeast.
He contacted the driver, an 18-year-old female. The young woman’s eyes were bloodshot and watery and the officer could smell intoxicants on her.
She seems under the influence, but was relatively in control of herself. She declined a portable breath test and a field sobriety test.
The officer doubted her alcohol level was above the legal limit, but since she is a minor, he arrested her for being a minor who drove after drinking. Back at the station, she took a Breathalyzer, and he found her BAC to be .163, more than twice the legal limit.
The officer noted he has rarely seen a person that age and size, with that high of an alcohol level who seemed relatively sober. He spoke to her mother about the situation, and the mother said her daughter doesn’t drink.
The officer noted the only way to develop such a high tolerance to alcohol is from drinking often.
The officer advised that the young lady adopt a more sober lifestyle.
Someone reported that while they left their car in the Safeway parking lot at about 10:15 a.m. May 28, someone reached in through a partially open window and stole hearing aids.
A Sammamish man called police after getting into an altercation with a motorist on the 27200 block of Trossachs Boulevard at 10:30 a.m. May 27.
The man was walking his dog when a car drove by at what the man felt was an excessive rate of speed.
He gestured to the driver with his hands that the man should slow down. The driver then made an obscene gesture, which the man kindly reciprocated. The driver got out of his car and denied speeding. He also hit the man in the chest before leaving the area. The man wanted the case documented in case he sees the man again and the situation escalates.
A man reported that his vehicle’s window was smashed overnight between May 27 and 28 while the car was parked on the 1700 block of 221st Place Northeast.
Police responded to a home on the 22500 block of Southeast 47th Place after a homeowner reported an attempted burglary had happened between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. May 28.
The home has a double door, and the officer believes someone tried to gain entry using a pry bar of some sort at the seam where the doors meet. It does not seem that anyone was able to gain entry to the home.
Get a room
A Sammamish man called police after he saw another man pleasuring himself in his car on the 22400 block of Northeast Inglewood Hill Road at about 4:30 p.m. May 30.
The man said he heard his dogs barking and went to look out of his second-floor window, when he saw into the man’s car. The man appeared aroused and was clutching a flesh-colored object.
When police arrived, the officer found the man’s pants were unbuttoned and unzipped and he was holding a smartphone in his hand. The man later said he had been playing with his knife. He also said that he is allergic to metal so he generally keeps his pants unbuttoned and pointed to a red spot on his waist. The officer recommends he be charged with indecent exposure.
