Triple Dog Dare
It’s that time of the year again when temperatures are dropping and thoughts start turning to that age-old question: Do things really freeze to poles once contact is made.
It must have been a triple dog dare (TDD) which caused a man to test this theory in the 15100 block of NE Woodinville Duvall Road. (Heck, anyone could have told him this only works with tongues, not car bumpers.)
When police responded to the TDD, they found damage to the utility pole; however, the risk-taker was MIA.
A check of the registered owner’s address found the driver replacing his tire.
He said he didn’t notice the damage to the pole. He got a C+ on that excuse, was cited for hit and run and booted down a long exit slide.
One Man’s Treasure ...
... is apparently another man’s junk.
A burglar broke into a residence in the 15000 block of NE 173rd Street and started ripping open boxes with a childlike glee normally reserved for Christmas morning. Apparently, he didn’t find a Red Ryder BB gun with a compass in the stock, or anything else on his wish list, as nothing appears to have been taken at this time.
It’s just as well, as he probably would have shot his eye out.
A woman in the 13900 block of NE 145th Street must have been in a special hurry, as she and her car took a short cut down a bank.
A witness helped her make her withdrawal from the car. Thankfully, there were no deposits of blood, or anything else made. You can take this to the bank: She was processed for DUI and released.
In a recurring theme these past few weeks, automobile windows have been broken and the purses inside withdrawn. The two latest incidents happened at NE 145th Woodinville-Redmond Road and the 18100 block of 140th Avenue NE.
Please remember: Purses are like babies and dogs. You should never leave them in the car by themselves.
