MARCH 3, 1997
Also in police reports:
Feb. 26: Police believe a 1986 Honda Accord briefly stolen from a county Park & Ride on the 11700 block of Juanita-Woodinville Way was used in a failed residential burglary attempt. The resident of the house interrupted the burglary and spotted the car as it sped away. Police later recovered the vehicle in the same lot from which it was stolen, though in a different parking spot.
Feb. 27: On two separate occasions last month, a female described as pale with dark hair, in her 20s or 30s, successfully passed counterfeit checks at local businesses, receiving cash above services rendered and food ordered. According to police, the checks are obvious fakes. On one occasion, the suspect eluded police by a mere two minutes, possibly becoming nervous when a cashier went into the back room (where she called police.)
Also on Feb. 27, an unknown suspect entered an unlocked 1993 Ford Ranger in an open area of the 14000 block of NE 181st and stole a cellular phone.
