The Redmond Reporter Police Blotter is not intended to be representative of all police calls originating in Redmond, which gets more than 500 calls (emergency and non-emergency) per week.

Prowlers: At 11:41 a.m., Redmond police responded to and investigated a report of a prowler in the 7900 block of 152nd Avenue Northeast in Grass Lawn. Upon arrival to the area, two males were detained and charged through investigations for attempted residential burglary. Redmond police spokesperson Jim Bove said the men claimed to be selling Kirby vacuums door to door. "The victim heard them trying to break into the house, called 911 and we were able to make an arrest," Bove said. "A great job of being a good witness and not getting involved." He said the two men — a 34-year-old from Lynnwood and a 32-year-old from Lake Stevens — were both taken into custody without incident.
Missing person found: A missing man checked himself into Fairfax Hospital at 10:11 a.m.
