Blue money: At 10:33 a.m. in the 12000 block of Northeast 144th Place, a victim’s sister accepted a fake $100 bill by accident while managing a garage sale. The money wasn’t even a real bill or real looking at all. It was blue. It looked like toy money. The sister will be more careful next time.

Boat party: At 8:44 p.m. in the 10th block of Kirkland Avenue, there was a boat with people drinking on it while docked at the harbor. The harbor master tried to approach the drinking folks. But three of the group of nine were giving the harbor master a hard time. The harbor master went home.
