SOMEBODY STOLE MY FUN

Burglars entered a residence in the 19700 block of 131st Place NE and made off with just about every form of wholesome entertainment one could imagine, including electronics, paintball guns, Xbox, clothing, an assault pack, marijuana and a rifle. The Woodinville Detective is investigating.

OPEN SEASON ON AUTOS

Car burglars struck far and wide, plundering a plethora of prizes including a backpack, duffel bag, computer, camera, clothing, hand gun, glasses, cash, empty medicine bottles, a phone charger and the Pièce de résistance: cookbooks.

In another case, thieves made off with the entire truck, removing it from the victim’s business parking lot, stripping it of its engine and accessories, and unceremoniously dumping the carcass in East King County.

YOU MUST BE THIS TALL TO RIDE

A group of amateur crooks apparently got bored with their Tonka trucks and bulldozers and took their play up a notch by breaking into a construction trailer.  They proceeded to move several tools and heavy equipment around in an attempt to steal them, but were unsuccessful.  They then went after the grand prize, attempting to make off with a forklift.

They were also unsuccessful in that endeavor, damaging it in the effort.

At some point they realized that these were all toys for big boys and snatched a couple of laptop computers, presumably to resume their escapades in the virtual world.

ROAD RUFFIANS

Some people may claim confusion about entering, leaving and yielding right-of-way in roundabouts, but nobody can claim befuddlement about the proper course of action after rear-ending someone, whether in a roundabout or not. 

A large, blue SUV-type vehicle rammed the victim from behind in the roundabout at the 14400 block of 148th NE, causing injury, and fled the scene. 

The suspect vehicle is believed to have front end damage

In another case of bad road behavior, a traffic altercation in the 12800 block of NE 175th ended with one of the drivers being punched in the face.  The responding officer is investigating.
