Police Beat - August 5, 2013

  • Written by \Maggie Inahara

Same crime, different place and time: Two unlocked vans, one in the 14800 block of NE 195th Street and the other in the 18400 block of 151st Avenue NE, were entered and every man’s worst nightmare realized:  “Oh, no! Not my tools, man!”  
A plethora of tools now answer to new masters and assist in the home improvement projects of persons unknown. Lock ’em or lose ’em, guys!

Two locked cars proved to be no deterrent for a determined thief or thieves.  
The first in the 14200 block of NE 193rd Place, had a window forced open and a wallet stolen. The other car in the 18600 block of Woodinville-Snohomish Road had the window smashed out and a purse stolen from the front seat.
 Shortly after that theft was reported, Duvall PD arrested a person who was in possession of a purse that matched the description of the purse just stolen.  
Coincidentally, the ID and credit cards also matched the identity of the victim.  
Unfortunately, the suspect had wasted no time in making purchases with the purloined cards. Duvall PD is investigating with charges pending.

A motorcycle rider obviously left his manners at home, cutting off a motorist in the 15000 block of 148th Avenue NE, then stopping his bike in the middle of the road.  
Things went downhill from there, as our hog rider approached the victim’s car and proceeded to smash the driver’s side mirror while screaming profanities at her.
 I wonder what his mother would have to say about this egregious lapse of civility.

It’s bad enough having a suspended license.  
Strike two is adding an outstanding warrant on top of that.  Not satisfied with this double play, a driver near NE 145th and Woodinville-Redmond Road decided to go for a Grand Slam by hitting another vehicle and attempting to leave the scene as officers arrived.  
It will be a while before this guy gets to play in the old ball game again — he was booked into jail with charges pending.  Do not pass go; do not collect any peanuts or Cracker Jacks.
