Signs of the Times
Everyone has an opinion when they see campaign signs: Some see them as a stellar display of freedom of speech, others as a blight on the landscape, while some see a distraction to good driving.
One fellow from the 17300 block of 133rd Avenue NE saw nothing but a potential gold mine as he harvested signs from all over the city, county and into Snohomish County for repurposing for his personal business.
Dining Al Fresco
A police officer noticed a man lying in front of a store in the 13900 block of NE 175th Street among several pieces of trash from the trash can.
Store employees said he had been making his dining selections out of the trash can and would prefer that he take the smorgasbord elsewhere. The man was trespassed and left the area.
Lying Low (but not low enough)
When one is driving around with drug paraphernalia and stolen property in the car, it’s always a good idea to keep a very low profile and not do anything which may draw attention to one’s self.
Two suspects in the 17300 block of 139th Avenue NE got the driving around part right, but when they decided to park illegally, all bets were out the window.
Police approached, the illicit goods were discovered and both subjects got a free ride to King County Jail.
In another case of not flying quite low enough under the radar, police responded to a speeding complaint in the 15600 block of Woodinville-Duvall Road and found a woman, well, speeding.
When asked for her driver’s license, she came up empty-handed, since said license had been previously suspended. She was finger printed and released.
