A shopper outside of a pet-oriented retail establishment in the 17800 block of Garden Way NE must have been feeling those animal pheromones when she decided to jump on the back of another patron in the parking lot in front of the store.
Apparently, there was a disagreement over the ownership of a coveted feline which had been up for adoption at that facility.
Once the fur stopped flying, a charge of fourth degree assault was levied. Hissssssss.
A victim got a call from VISA Fraud Prevention stating that her card had been used for a purchase at a Staples store in New Jersey.
The victim still has the VISA card in her possession, has never been to New Jersey and has never even watched Jersey Shore on TV.
The unauthorized use of her card was designated as a fraudulent purchase. That was easy.
Sometimes, the waiting times at urgent care centers seem excessive at best.
Patients may end up sizing up the seriousness of other people’s illnesses and injuries compared to their own and take umbrage at the order in which the cases are triaged.
It’s truly best to keep those evaluations to yourself, because one sure-fire way of losing your place in line is to create a disturbance which requires police intervention.
Such a disturbance occurred at an urgent care center near the 16900 block of 140th Avenue NE. Our combative client had the dubious honor of adding “bruised ego” to the list of medical complaints as they were escorted off the premises.
There have been plenty of car prowls to report recently, but thieves have been upping their game this past week.
Not satisfied with absconding with the goodies contained therein, these pirates have been purloining the entire vehicle:
One victim returned from a theater in the 17600 block of Garden Way NE to find that their tan Nissan Sentra had gone missing sometime between 2100 and 2330.
Another victim discovered their brand new VW Passat stolen sometime during the night from in front of their home in the 13200 block of NE 145th Place.
There were no clues left behind.
