Police Beat - July 22, 2013

A thief with absolutely no sense of propriety entered a Ford Explorer in the 13000 block of NE 197th Place and made off with a woman’s face — well, what would have been her face.

A makeup bag complete with cosmetics and tools of the trade was spirited away and the victim was left to face the day au naturel.


In another crime against beauty and its tools, a burglar broke out a window in the 14100 block of NE Woodinville-Duvall Road to enter the business.

The suspect(s) apparently tried to cut open the safe but then spied the real prize in the form of hair irons. They were so taken with this fabulous find, that they left their flashlight behind.

Fabulous fingerprints, perhaps … 


You know how when the weather gets hot, people start experimenting with food to demonstrate just how hot it is?

To wit: "You can fry an egg on that dashboard!"

One aspiring scientist decided to take that experiment to the next level by seeing if he could cook a pancake breakfast on the hood of a Jeep Cherokee in the 18400 block of 148th Avenue NE.

C’mon, folks! It never gets hot enough in the Pacific Northwest to get a satisfying short stack from a car cooking surface. This hotcake turned into a hot mess, doing a number on the car’s paint job.


Speaking of hot weather, people should not have to be reminded that it’s never O.K. to leave ANYONE in the car, no matter how short the intended errand might be.

We hear reports all the time of pets being left in cars to swelter and suffer, but a mom in the 13900 block of NE 178th left her two young children in her hot-box car while she left to shop. She was issued a citation for child neglect.
