May 30

Public enemy: At 2:57 p.m. in the 600 block of Waverly Way, a subject was at the park listening to his rap music. One of the park goers got upset. She told him to turn down his music. Instead, the music enthusiast allegedly turned the music up and then “cussed at her.” But the man told police that the lady actually told him to “turn his f——— music down.”

American rights: At 2:35 p.m. in the 6100 block of 116th Avenue Northeast, a woman used to know the family at the residence. She decided to take it upon herself to collect buckets of water at the house and charge her phone. She continued talking about American rights.

Knife guy strikes again: At 4:27 p.m. in the 100 block of Central Way, the owner of Epicurean Edge reported that someone stole numerous knives. Among the knives taken were three one-of-a-kind Damascus blades. Each was worth about $4,200 and the total value of the knives stolen was about $13,580. No suspect information. Store cameras do not work.

Good aim: At 6:03 p.m. in the 12300 block of Northeast 90th Street, a subject attempted to make a left hand turn onto 124th Avenue Northeast, but slammed on his brakes. A Jeep sped through the intersection from the opposite direction. As the Jeep drove through the intersection it slowed down. The Jeep driver spit on the subject through the window. The saliva hit him in the face.

Broken alarm: At 5:28 p.m. in the 12400 block of 109th Court Northeast, an “incessant” car alarm had been going on and off for the past two days. It was a gold Honda Odyssey. The car alarm could be heard going off in the background during the entire call.

Nature’s course: At 7:57 p.m. in the 10000 block of 130th Avenue Northeast, there was an injured racoon in the driveway. It wasn’t moving but was still breathing. It sounded like shallow breathing and was not looking good. The caller had a dog and a child onsite and didn’t know what to do. They were advised to “let nature be nature.”

May 31

Unexpected car theft: At 1:17 a.m. in the 9400 block of 110th Place Northeast, a 2019 Dodge Ram truck was stolen from a home. The owner left the car unlocked. The keys were on the center console.

No leftovers: At 5:59 p.m. in the 10100 block of Northeast 137th Place, a daughter was angry at her mother over no leftover food in the house from last night’s dinner. The mother told police her daughter was bugging her about the food, so she yelled at her. She also said that her daughter, 32, was the one who called the police.

June 1

Who’s that?: At 3:31 p.m. in the 800 block of 9th Avenue South, a caller saw someone at his back slider on his Ring camera. The homeowner was in Redmond when he saw the unknown person. No one should have been at his home. There was a blonde female in the bedroom. It was his house cleaners.

June 3

No parking: At 8:45 p.m. in the 12400 block of Northeast 145th Place, a subject keyed both side door panels of a new Audi. They were upset over the car parked in a no-parking area.
