Police Beat

  Compiled by John Price from Woodinville Police reports
   Oct. 21: Police received a silent alarm call from a business in the 19000 block of Woodinville-Snohomish Road. An officer was in the area and responded to the scene in under 30 seconds. On the north side of the building he found a section of fence cut and rolled up. Leaning against the fence was a brand new dirt bike.
   Additional officers arrived and spread out to canvass the area. Eventually the owner arrived and after looking through the shop told police that nothing else had been disturbed. The area check was negative for suspects.
   Oct. 17: A man exiting the park and ride in the 17700 block 140th Avenue Northeast stopped at the light. While waiting for the signal to change he realized that he could not take a left at that time of day. When the light turned green, he drove straight through the intersection from the left-hand turn lane. This caused an accident with another car. Both cars pulled to the side to examine the damage. The man later told police that his English was not very good and he did not understand what the woman was saying to him.
   He told the woman he was sorry and drove off. She gave the license plate number to police who contacted the man later that day. The suspect will be cited for Hit and Run Attended.
   Addition: Last week's report regarding a teenage girl crashing a car in the 14100 block of Woodinville-Duvall Road: The girl did not have permission to drive the car.
