BROTHER, CAN YOU SPARE YOUR WALLET?
Police were called to the report of an aggressive panhandler in the 17300 block of 140th Avenue NE who was following customers from the store to their vehicles demanding money. The panhandler made claims of being a professional, living in an apartment in Bellevue and earning up to $30/hr or $150 per day from extremely generous citizens in Woodinville.
Due to his aggressive nature in requesting money and intimidating customers, he was trespassed from the restaurant.
Police advise the public NOT to give money to any panhandlers in the city and to call 911 to report aggressive or intimidating behavior.
This fellow needs to get a REAL job.
MY PRECIOUS ...
The only thing more enticing than a gold ring to Gollum is an unattended laptop or tablet in an automobile.
A thief or thieves helped themselves to their Precious in the 13400 block of NE 177th Place and the 13700 block of NE 175th Street.
You, too can magically extend the life of your favorite apparatus by keeping it with you, rather than letting it fend for itself in the car.
Cars weren’t the only victims of pirated playthings.
Loss prevention officers reported two separate thefts of Play Station and X-Box hard drives from a store in the 13900 block of NE 178th Place. A suspect in previous thefts from adjoining jurisdictions was identified through video. A Woodinville detective is investigating.
WHAT NOT TO DO WHEN
YOUR LICENSE IS SUSPENDED
The first thing not to do is a no-brainer: Don’t drive!
There’s probably a good reason why that license was suspended.
Tip number two is refraining from traffic violations which catch the attention of law enforcement.
Woodinville Police cited and released two such offenders after busting them for traffic infractions. Don’t they teach this in Driver’s Ed any more?
