Police Beat - April 2, 2012

Hunger Games

While working up a mighty appetite at a gym in the 18600 block of Woodinville-Snohomish Road, a McBurglar broke the victim’s car window and stole his lunch box from inside.

This was, indeed, fast food for the crook, as he made a quick getaway with his happy meal, leaving no clues or crumbs behind.  We’re not lovin’ it.

To Xfinity and Beyond!

An identity thief decided to become well-connected in the City of SeaTac by ordering up cable, Internet and phone service using the personal information of a Woodinville resident.

While our communications crook was happily texting, tweeting and TV viewing, the Woodinville victim was not enjoying the bundled bill, in spite of the deeply discounted deal du jour and lightning fast speeds.

Take Me Out To The Ball Game

A Woodinville police officer saw a suspect he knew to have a suspended license driving on the roadway near NE 200th Street and Woodinville-Snohomish Road.  (Strike one)

He turned around to stop him and the truck nearly drove off into the ditch. (Strike two)

The suspect then switched seats with the passenger as the officer approached. (Foul ball)

The driver was arrested and was found to have something greener and leafier than peanuts and crackerjacks in his pocket.  (Strike three)

The vehicle was impounded (we don’t care if he ever gets back) and the driver was fingerprinted and released pending DWLS and marijuana charges.

And that’s the old ball game.

Let me tell you how it will be

There’s one for you, nineteen for me.

’Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman. Or am I?

The only kind of mail more unpleasant than a bill is a letter from the IRS, especially when that letter claims to be holding your refund check hostage until you supply more information. That situation becomes even more disconcerting when you haven’t filed your tax return yet.  (Or even thought about it)

Our alert taxpayer decided to ask them what they wanted it for (because she didn’t want to pay some more).

Woodinville Police took the fraud report, and we’re thankful the fake taxman didn’t take it all.
