What Goes Up Must Come Down …
… except when you’re talking about gas prices. They’re up, then down, then up again. Who can keep track anymore? One petroleum consumer apparently became so confused about gas futures and pricing fluctuations, that he mistook a company truck in the 15000 block of Woodinville Redmond Road for a fuel pump and proceeded to empty the tank after severing the fuel line. There was no payment or other clues left behind.
Catch Me If You Can
A Woodinville officer made a traffic stop on a suspect vehicle for speeding in the 13900 block of NE 175th Street. The officer ordered the suspect to “stay” while investigating a possible vehicle theft. The suspect must have attended the same obedience school as my dog, as he proceeded to run from the officer who then chased him on foot. He made it back to his vehicle and drove away, attempting to elude the pursuing officer. The officer rammed the vehicle in a parking lot and arrested the driver for a suspended license, attempting to elude and being off-leash. He was booked into the King County Jail.
Sounds a Lot Like Larceny
An unknown male suspect targeted a sound system from a store in the 13900 block of NE 178th Place. This particular guest decided to take the concept of expecting more while paying less to an extreme by passing up the store’s friendly team members standing by at numerous cash registers and absconding without paying. He departed in a blue or green Toyota Corolla leaving team members seeing red.
The victim returned to his home in the 17900 block of 164th Avenue NE to find the door from his garage to the house kicked in and several easy-to-carry items stolen from inside. Entry to the garage was made through the doggy door. The dog is refusing to discuss the incident or provide a description of the thief, having possibly been bribed by biscuits.
