Police were called to a Woodinville store, where a thwarted shoplifting endeavor led the disgruntled ne’er-do-well to pull a knife on the meddlesome loss prevention officer. When officers arrived, however, the LPO was out of danger and the knife had been recovered. The would-be thief is now contemplating his failure at the local Graybar Hotel. Elsewhere in Woodinville, a woman discovered a strange man in her garage with possession of her bicycle pump. The man, once found, fled the scene not on a two-wheeled transport usually associated with bicycle pumps (as might be expected), but rather one with four.
Employees at a Woodinville bank gave the side eye to an individual attempting to open bank accounts using identities not his own. They contacted police to investigate. Police discovered more than fraud afoot: they learned that the wayward fellow had felony warrants from sea to shining sea. For convenience sake, the man will join the aforementioned failed shoplifter in his enjoyment of three hots and a cot.
