May 23

“High” school: At 2:52 p.m. in the 10200 block of Northeast 129th Lane, a teen from Juanita High School came to the front door of the caller’s home. The student started a verbal argument. He was upset that the subject reported him to the high school for smoking marijuana. No one knows how the teenager discovered who snitched on him.

Chicken possession: At 4 p.m. in the 13800 block of 121st Avenue Northeast, someone reported that their neighbor has a lot of chickens, pigeons and dogs. This makes the area smell and is causing a rat problem. The anonymous caller wants to know if anything can be done. Someone will check for unlawful chicken possession.

May 24

Dumping: At 7:47 a.m in the 12200 block of Northeast 92nd Street, someone dumped several bags of garbage in a driveway. It was the home of a 70-year-old veteran.

Just letting you know: At 2:55 p.m. in the 12600 block of Northeast 72nd Street, a caller wanted the police to know of suspicious activity in the area. Mail theft is happening and coupes are using the park for “romantic interludes.” The caller was given the non-emergency number.

Semi scary: At 3:16 p.m. in the 11800 block of 120th Avenue Northeast, a driver reported that her car was almost hit by a semi-truck when she passed in the center turn lane. Then an unknown man came running toward her car and attempted to punch her window. She thought it was the driver of the semi. The subject was gone when police arrived. The semi-truck driver did not confront the woman.

Unemployed: At 3:32 p.m. in the 10400 block of Northeast 37th Circle, an employer received a notification that a former employee had accessed private servers. The employee was terminated the previous week. The employer believed the subject accessed the server for a nefarious reason. Police spoke with the subject. He told police he only accessed the systems to find his certification numbers so he can update his resume. He needs a job.

Bongo time: At 4:45 p.m. in the 11900 block 93rd Lane Northeast, someone reported noise coming from this address. An officer responded and spoke with the tenant, a man playing the bongos.

May 30

Payback: At 9:15 a.m. in the 11800 block of Northeast 118th Street, there were a bunch of signs and cones at a construction site across from the Kirkland Police Department. Video showed a man who had recently been arrested for DUI. He was knocking cones over and breaking signs after his release from jail.
