Police blotter June 25
June 26, 2014
Police responded when a Sammamish boy reported he was shot in the eye by another boy with a slingshot June 7. It appears the incident was an accident, and the boy who was hit does not wish to pursue prosecution.
A Sammamish man reported someone had left his mailbox on the 22900 block of Northeast 25th Way open overnight between June 8 and 9. He is not sure if anything was taken. He noted that several other mailboxes were also open. Another man also called and reported missing mail from the 200 block of 214th Avenue Northeast. When an officer arrived, he found numerous mailboxes in the north end of the city to be open, and also found junk mail scattered along a few roadways.
A woman on the 22000 block of Southeast Fourth Street had a similar issue, with a locking mailbox forced open the same night.
Also on June 9, a different officer found mail belonging to 18 different people in the bushes on the 24000 block of Northeast 22nd Street. He collected the mail and made arrangements to turn it over to the post office.
Early celebration squashed
A police officer found a bag with fireworks in it at about 8 a.m. June 9 in the parking lot of the Pine Lake QFC. He placed the bag in the explosive evidence locker for later disposal.
A Sammamish man reported that someone broke into his truck on the 21000 block of Northeast 17th Street overnight between June 5 and 6. It seems like a door lock was punched out and someone removed a logging chain worth $90 from the cab of the truck.
A Sammamish woman reported someone tried to enter her home on the 400 block of East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast between 3 and 4:15 p.m. June 14. A police officer noted pry marks on the door frame. The woman said no items seemed to have been moved or missing.
Someone reported at 10:21 a.m. June 13 that someone had smashed out the rear passenger window of their vehicle on the 19200 block of Southeast 21st Street and removed an item from within.
Someone called a local school and spoke to one for the counselors there. The caller claimed that a neighbor had caught him doing a bad thing and was going to tell his mother. The counselor told him he would have to accept the consequences of his actions. The counselor was with another student and told the caller to call back later. When he did, he said the neighbor had caught him masturbating and was going to tell his mother. Again, the counselor said he would need to accept responsibility for his actions. Later, the counselor found out that someone was making a similar call last year with a similar set of circumstances. Upon reflection, the counselor said the voice sounded like an older male, not a student.
A woman found a book and a sweatshirt on the ground at Big Rock Park at about 8 p.m. June 8. She notified police in case they were part of some sort of crime.
A Sammamish man reported June 9 that a Chevy truck had been parked near the intersection of Southeast 41st Court and 229th Avenue Southeast for three weeks.
At about 6:16 a.m. June 13, a police officer found a man sleeping in his van on 247th Avenue Southeast near the intersection with Southeast 32nd Street. The man said he was homeless, used to live in Sammamish and was thinking about moving back to the area. The officer asked him not to sleep in his van in the area.
A Sammamish woman reported that someone seemed to have hit her car on the 200 block of 211th Place Northeast, leaving scratches along its length sometime between 2 and 4 p.m. June 14. The marks were white, but it is unclear if that was the color of the other car or just primer from the woman’s car.
Items in the Police Blotter come from Sammamish Police reports.
