A word of advice… If you have a felony warrant out of the U.S. Marshals’ Office, don’t forget to use your blinker when you make a turn. An Officer stopped a vehicle at River Road NE and NE Woodinville-Duvall Road and after investigating, determined the driver had a warrant. The driver was arrested and during a subsequent search, suspected heroin was found along with drug paraphernalia. River Road NE and NE Woodinville-Duvall Road: The driver was transported to the King County Jail Hilton where he spent the night until he was picked up by the Marshals. Yep, drugs are bad.
After receiving a complaint about abandoned vehicles at 14500 block of 272nd Place NE, Officers located a stolen vehicle out of Duvall. They notified the owner, who inspected the vehicle and found several items in the vehicle that were not his and the thieves must have left behind. Just like the warrant arrest and not using a turn signal, if you’re going to steal a car don’t leave your half-eaten cheese burger in the vehicle (although cheeseburgers are delicious). Officers were glad they were able to locate the vehicle and get it back to the owner in one piece. Remember to remove all valuables from your vehicle and don’t leave keys or your garage remote in the vehicle. Officers think the suspect is the Hamburglar but are not 100 percent sure, so keep your eyes peeled.
