April 15: In a bad week for Woodinville larcenists, an unidentified, approximately 5'5" female in a blue jacket dropped the pullover she had stolen from Sports World. Owner Emma Missler saw the woman running out of the store with the clothing, gave chase, and recovered the pullover. The suspect drove away in a small white car.
April 16: Captain Dave Mehren of the King County Sheriff's office reports that four local residents have reported ATM card withdrawals of up to $800 from their bank accounts, but none of them had lost or lent their cards to anyone. Mehren pointed out that some credit card machines print the transaction with the account number on the receipt. Anyone at the store might be able to see the PIN number being entered for the sale. A machine to put account numbers on the magnetic stripe of another bank card costs about $150.
