GEORGE OF THE JUNGLE
Officers responded to a call where a dude was seen crawling through the bushes outside a business in the 17600 block of Garden Way NE. He was contacted and appeared to be under the influence of at least one type of green, leafy vegetable matter. Since there wasn’t a handy rope swing nearby, he was issued a trespass warning and pointed in the direction of civilization.
HOT ENOUGH TO FRY AN EGG?
With record-breaking September temperatures, the temptation was apparently too great to refrain from that age-old experiment of finding out if it’s hot enough to fry an egg on a car. With the analysis taking place in the 12400 block of NE 146th Place, the first attempt was not only not fried — it wasn’t even approaching over easy. Attempts 2 through 6 garnered similarly negative results. These outcomes might prove frustrating for many budding scientists, but pale in comparison to the irritation felt by the owner of the vehicle, who had not offered up her car for experimentation of any kind in the first place. Please save the eggs for your kitchen experiments, you Bill Nye wannabes.
THE ONE THAT ALMOST GOT AWAY
An exercise enthusiast in the 18600 block of Woodinville-Snohomish Road NE ended his workout on a sour note when he found his lock cut from his locker and his gym bag and car keys missing. Tapping into those endorphin reserves, he ran outside to see a culprit attempting to get into his vehicle. Although he yelled at the crook to stop, the suspect had other ideas and was last seen running away and getting into an older model silver BMW getaway car. A Woodinville detective is investigating.
