Police Beat - March 5, 2012

Magnetic Poles

What is it about utility poles that is so downright irresistible to car bumpers?  In two separate incidents, one in the 15200 block of Woodinville-Duvall Road and the other at the 15500 block of NE 175th Street, the power of attraction could not be overcome, nor denied.

With the marriage of metal to wood consummated, it also appears that both drivers had engaged in a premature toast.

Both were cited for DUI and released.

Frequent Flying Filcher

Like a bad penny that keeps turning up, this ol’ gal who must have been dumber than a bag of hammers, returned to the scene of multiple previous shoplifting crimes in the 13900 block of NE 178th Place for yet more misdeeds.

She was called on the carpet and told she would be busted into the middle of next week lookin’ both ways for Sunday.

In other words, the Woodinville officer is investigating this incident for felony organized retail theft.

Chump Change

A pair of sophisticated safe crackers utilizing state-of-the-art drilling equipment, advanced safe-cracking technology and other finely-honed high-dollar crime skills, descended on a phone booth in the 14100 block of NE Woodinville-Duvall Road.

A coin was removed.

There will be no film at 11.

Going South for the Winter

It’s that time of year when some of us start thinking about what could have been, had we just gone south for the winter: A land where it wasn’t snowing at the end of February … where spring seems more than just a distant dream …

Apparently, a credit card from a victim in the 20200 block of 151st Avenue NE decided to make that last minute sunny dash to the warmer climes of Florida, charging supplies to be delivered there ahead of its arrival.

Alas, the bank brought this wayward card’s spree to an end, stopping all orders in their cold tracks.
