A free meal: At 9:02 p.m. in the 100 block of Kirkland Avenue, a suspect dined and dashed on a $77 bill. He attempted to pay with a prepaid card but it was declined. He refused to provide the business his ID and left. He did provide his full name and number. The number wasn’t working.

Aug. 29

Sketchy spa: At 3:48 p.m. in the 8400 block of 122nd Avenue Northeast, a woman paid twice for her service at a spa. She thinks the spa is “not a legitimate business and needs to be shut down.”

Aug. 30

Technical difficulties: At 9:09 a.m. in the 400 block of 7th Avenue, overnight a rock was thrown through a glass pane of a garage door facing the street. The home was purchased with a previously installed camera system. The victim did not know how to operate the camera. It appeared to be malfunctioning. The subject sought out tech support to see if any footage could be recovered.

Sept. 3

Hate-fueled keying: Someone’s car in the 12900 block of Northeast 126th Place was keyed sometime between 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. as the person was attending a religious gathering. They believe the crime was hate related.

Sept. 4

Drive-thru danger: At 5:52 p.m. in the 8500 block of 124th Avenue Northeast, a subject was threatening an employee at a drive-up window. They specifically asked for the employee at the window and threatened to fight him. The aggressor saw that the subject was calling and left.

Sept. 5

Dumping: At 11:22 a.m. in the 6900 block of 132nd Avenue Northeast, someone was dumping trash in the park. It was a white truck with a green bed. The caller called it a “huge load of garbage.” Police spoke with the owner of Cascade Ventures, who explained that the dumpster had been overloaded from a construction project in the park and his employee had to empty part of the dumpster in order to pick up the dumpster. The rubbish that was left was going to be removed. He tried to explain this to the caller.
