June 18, 2014
It’s a fish wrapper, not a fire starter
Police responded when a man on the 1400 block of 233rd Avenue Southeast called to report someone had started a fire in his garbage can at about 10:05 p.m. June 6. When police arrived, the officer found a rolled up newspaper lying on the bottom of the can. The man said he’d noticed six juvenile males attempting to start a fire in the can. The newspaper was partially blackened, but had not caught fire. Police searched the area but did not turn up anything.
A Sammamish man on the 22200 block of Northeast Second Street reported someone had taken his pick up truck overnight from June 5 to 6. A jet ski was in the back of the truck and was also missing.
One that got away
Police responded when a man was selling door-to-door without a license on the 21400 block of Southeast 37th Street. The officer explained to the man that he needed a permit and how to get one. The officer then contacted the seller’s manager.
He found that the manager had an outstanding warrant from San Juan County, but it was not extraditable, so the officer let them all go.
it all back
The complex manager at the Saffron apartments found a clear plastic tote bag and called police about it at 10:22 a.m. June 5. An officer recovered the tote and items in it.
He found a phone number written in the tote, so he called that number and was able to make contact with the owner to return the tote. He also found a set of brass knuckles, which are illegal, so he confiscated them before returning the bag and its contents.
Just calm down
A woman pulled into a parking spot at the Pine Lake QFC at 3:45 p.m. June 3. A moment later, a second woman knocked on her car and demanded she get out of her car.
The second woman was upset about the first woman claiming that parking stall. The first woman told the second to “get a life” and went into the store. The second woman parked about eight spaces down.
She then keyed the first woman’s car. A third woman happened to witness the keying. She went into the store to find the first.
Police responded and took statements from everyone involved. The officers arrested the alleged key-er and booked her on charges of second degree malicious mischief.
Police responded when a woman called to report someone had broken the glass on her car window between 9 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. June 2 while it was parked on the 2900 block of 228th Avenue Southeast. The officer found nothing to indicate what had broken the glass. Nothing was missing from the vehicle.
A Sammamish resident reported items were taken from their car on the 800 block of207th Avenue Northeast overnight from June 5 to 6.
A man on the 4100 block of Peregrine Point Way Southeast reported that his mailbox, and other mailboxes in the cluster in his neighborhood, has been pried open recently. He walked past them at 7:30 a.m. May22 and they were fine, and then at 11:30, two had been forcefully opened.
A teacher at Skyline High School notified police May 27 that someone had vandalized a soundboard at the school. A number of knobs were bent over. Most knobs were straightened out, but one seems broken and will need repairs.
