Between June 27 and June 28, unknown suspect(s) burglarized a business located on the 19000 block of 144th Avenue NE by forcing open a sliding door, and stole approximately $29,000 in tools and equipment, damaging the store by running into walls with a forklift used to transport the stolen goods.
   On June 30, police recovered 900 pounds of new aluminum sheets from an Everett salvage yard. Because of its green coloring, the aluminum is believed to be the metal from a Boeing 727 mid-flap wing reported stolen from another local business a few weeks ago.

   At 1:20 a.m. July 8, a male was kicked out of a Woodinville watering hole, then resisted and allegedly broke the windshield of a nearby car in the parking lot with a hammer-type tool, causing $250 damage.
