March 28

Theft: At 5:04 p.m. in the 7300 block of Northeast 142nd Place, a victim reported that someone stole his dirt back from the bed of his black Nissan pickup truck overnight.

School threat: At 7:55 a.m. in the 14100 block of 132nd Avenue Northeast, a notebook was found in a classroom at Kamiakin Middle School that contained some racist comments and vague threats about bringing an automatic rifle to school. Officers investigated the incident and spoke to a multitude of students during the day. One student admitted to have written the items in the notebook and faces school sanctions. There are no criminal charges.

‘Jerkland’: At 8:58 a.m. in the 12800 block of Northeast 85th Street, a driver called to report someone they believed was attempting to hit their car on purpose. The car reportedly swerved into his lane on purpose. In a possible emotional state, he said he may be compelled to take matters into his own by placing dash cams in his vehicle while he drives through “Jerkland” to document the “hateful freak shows” and “human scum” trying to take him out of this world. The caller then hung up.

Dog chase: At 12:21 p.m. in the 13800 block of Northeast 137th Street, a reported caller said her neighbor’s dog chases her all the time. The previous day, the dog chased her down the driveway and caused her to fall. The neighbors let the dog run free and are without a fenced yard.

Unsuccessful spit attempt: At 6:15 p.m. in the 200 block of Central Way, a suspect was arrested for theft in the third degree after she stole merchandise from the Market on Central. During the investigation she attempted to spit on officers. She was unsuccessful. The suspect was booked into jail.

Daffy speaking: At 7:41 a.m. in the 12500 block of Northeast 124th Street, a man was on the line cursing, saying that a female “needs to go back to Asia.” He kept repeating that “Rita” wouldn’t let him have any coffee. The caller was belligerent and argumentative with every question asked. He screamed his name was Daffy Duck. On the incident report the reporting party was listed as Daffy Duck.

Parenting plan: At 8:25 a.m. in the 10600 block of Northeast 38th Place, the father of an Eastside Preparatory School student called to inquire about the school not sharing student information with him — specifically his daughter being on a trip outside the country. The student’s parents are separated. The mother has the student enrolled in the school and the father is not listed as a parent/guardian therefore the school will not release any school info to him. There is no parenting plan to compel otherwise.

Stolen sunnies: At 1:15 p.m. in the 10th block of Lake Street, a brother and sister entered Xhale Vapor ‘n Smoke and created a disturbance when the male couldn’t locate his sunglasses after placing them on the counter. He accused the clerk and an independent witness said she saw the glasses on the counter but did not see where they went. The business was reviewing the surveillance video to determine what happened.

March 30

Extortion: At 1:10 p.m. in the 9700 block of Northeast 119th Way, a man met someone on a dating website and spoke to them on video chat. The other person recorded him and threatened to post the video if he didn’t pay $500. The caller had not given them any money. The caller deactivated his Facebook account.
