Police Blotter

Feb. 18

Fraud: At 7:49 a.m. at 12804 Northeast 120th Street, a male received a check for $2,550 from “Rose Yannis” for future cleaning services. Yannis asked the man, who owns a cleaning service, to deposit the check. The male went to his bank to inquire about the check, and discovered that the account does exist, but had zero funds. The male did not deposit the check.

Car prowl: At 7:58 a.m. at 11232 120th Avenue Northeast, the door on a pull-behind cargo trailer had been damaged.

Car prowl: At 8:06 a.m. at 431 Kirkland Avenue, a woman’s rear window on her car was smashed. About $1,800 worth of valuables were stolen, including two pairs of APL workout shoes, Lululemon workout gear, Apple Airpods, Sonos speakers, and a Herschel backpack.

DUI: At 8:12 a.m. on Southbound I-405 Northeast, a woman was arrested for a DUI after failing to use her turn signal, drifting within her driving lane, and poor performance on the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. The driver’s preliminary breath test was at .164.

Car prowl: At 8:13 a.m. at 14224 73rd Avenue Northeast, a suspect entered an unlocked vehicle and stole $2,500 worth of car stereo equipment and electrical tools.

Trespass: At 8:17 a.m. at 12655 120th Avenue Northeast, two suspects were found squatting at the Aura Apartments. Both individuals admitted to illegally using controlled substances, and officers observed multiple drug paraphernalia.

Harassment: At 8:33 a.m. at 14128 74th Place Northeast, a female reported an ongoing issue with her mother and neighbor. The report stated that her neighbor had been harassing her mother due to her ethnicity and loud activity of a small child who lives inside the condo.

Harassment: At 8:36 a.m. at 11400 Northeast 132nd Street South, a male had received harassing text messages via a suspect he met on Grindr. The two planned to meet, and the suspect demanded money, otherwise he would report the victim to the police for “being indecent.”

Harassment: At 9:13 a.m. at 207 Park Lane, a male won a large sum of money through sports gambling, but had not received the money from the contact. The male received vague threats if he did not pay the contact $2,000.

DUI: At 9:15 a.m. at 13636 100th Avenue Northeast, a female was arrested for a DUI after committing multiple lane violations and failing to pass preliminary breath tests.

Assault: At 9:30 a.m. at 8629 120th Avenue Northeast, a male was walking in a market walkway in the parking lot of Costco. A driver honked his horn, and the two became involved in a verbal altercation, resulting in the driver spitting into the victim’s face.

Domestic: At 9:38 a.m. in the 13000 block of 101st Lane Northeast, a verbal argument took place. The female involved began throwing her belongings against the walls of the male’s apartment. She was upset because the male allowed her to try drugs for the first time, and she failed a drug test, losing custody of her child.
