Possible prank: At 7:36 p.m. in the 8600 block of Northeast 139th Street, someone came in behind a home camera pointed at the front door and adjusted it. The homeowner noticed this while in Seattle and called to alert police of the strange circumstance. The house was secure with no signs of forced or attempted entry. The reporting person’s car was also secured. However, there was a package of cookies at the front door. The homeowner believed a friend may be pulling a prank on her and her husband.

Unplanned home inspection: At 11:27 p.m. in the 14000 block of 77th Avenue Northeast, a subject received a call from King County inspection saying they were going to come over on Monday.

Cars too loud: At 3:06 p.m. in the 100 block of State Street South, a caller was upset about cars going up Kirkland Avenue from the intersection at 3rd Street. The caller could hear some cars, and the noise from their muffler, as they travel all the way to the freeway. They wanted to file a specific complaint as it feels it just gets worse and worse and nothing is done.

After-hours construction: At 6:12 p.m. at Northeast 128th Street and 94th Avenue Northeast, someone reported construction being done after hours. They appeared to be paving the driveway. The construction crew was contacted and they did not have an after-hours permit. They said they would close up for the day.

Let me finish my chips: At 2:47 a.m. in the 12500 block of Northeast 85th Street, officers were dispatched to the Rose Hill Safeway location for a possible trespass.

Burglary: At 9:18 p.m. in the 12200 block of 131st Place Northeast, a person reported that an unknown male attempted to gain access to their apartment through a ground-floor window. The screen was removed and the suspect scared off by the resident and his firearm. No entry was made.

Escort: At 9:45 p.m. in the 10500 block of Northup Way, a man called to advise police that an escort he had hired several times in the past had failed to show up for their last date after he had pre-paid her $1,900. The subject realized he was engaging in criminal conduct but he wanted the escort taken down. The subject was advised his complaint was civil in nature and to stop soliciting prostitutes. He responded that he would alert the media.

April 24

Toilet removal: At 1:39 p.m. in the 11800 block of Northeast 143rd Street, neighbors were struggling to communicate and come to terms over neighborhood concerns. One of those concerns is a toilet that needs to be disposed of. The toilet owner said he would move it within 48 hours.
