THE LAYERED LOOK
Not only is it fashionable, but during the cold winter months, one can use layers of clothing to keep warm outdoors and adjust to indoor temps by removing said layers. A female shopper in the 17700 block of 130th Avenue NE seemed to have this whole concept backwards, as she left the outdoors with one layer of clothes and started adding layers once inside the store. She then made the decidedly unfashionable choice of leaving the store without paying for those new layers. She was left to cool her heels in the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of theft.
It wasn’t a mouse in his pocket that a man in the 17600 block of Garden Way NE was trying to conceal, but another item that gave him great comfort in the form of a bottle of liquor. It will be a while before our Lennie wannabe gets to tend those rabbits, as he was jailed on several outstanding warrants. Theft charges are pending.
In a recurring theme that has become all too common in recent weeks, catalytic converters have been topping the list for favored targets of theft. One victim in the 19400 block of 144th Avenue NE reported his CC stolen from his vehicle while it was in the shop for service. A second CC was stolen from a company vehicle while it was parked overnight outside a business at the 15500 block of Woodinville Redmond Road. Let’s hope this scam is nearing the end of its ninth life.
Sometimes, you just have to have one. Right NOW. That must have been the state of mind of a suspect who stole a vehicle from the parking area of a retirement home in the 17100 block of 133rd Avenue NE. The vehicle was found a short time later with the engine running in the McDonald’s parking lot, presumably after that craving was satisfied. It is unknown whether there was any supersizing involved.
