May 27

Bathroom theft: At 5:07 p.m. in the 3600 block of West Lake Samammish Parkway, officers searched for a purse that was stolen while unattended in a park bathroom. Police found the victim’s phone under a bush but the suspect and other property were not located.

Left behind handbags: At 8:37 p.m. in the 7700 block of 188th Avenue Northeast, three people reported having their purses stolen out of their cars while they were loading purchases into their trunks. In each case, the suspects snatched the purse while the victims were distracted and took off in a silver sedan. Some of the stolen credit cards were used soon after the thefts. Investigation is ongoing.

Come back: At 1:54 p.m. in the 9400 block of 1956th Avenue Northeast, a 30-year-old male decided to keep a rental car past the return date and ignored repeated attempts from the rental company to bring the vehicle back. Officers located the stolen Nissan parked in front of the suspect’s residence and arrested him on vehicle theft and for an outstanding warrant.

Looking good: At 8:10 p.m. in the 17600 block of Northeast Union Hill Road, police arrested a 33-year-old female on suspicion of stealing perfume and makeup from a local department store.

May 29

Unsuccessful theft: At 6:16 p.m. in the 15200 block of Bel-Red Road, employees at a local pawn shop called police after a male subject attempted to smash one of the display cases open with a rock. After unsuccessfully trying to break the glass, the suspect fled the store and took off in a waiting vehicle. Evidence gathered at the scene is being processed and the investigation is ongoing.

May 30

Home Depot sprint: At 6 p.m. in the 17700 block of Northeast 76th Street, a 45-year-old male was seen running out of Home Depot with a cart full of stolen tools. He fled in a car that also carried his 3-year-old child. Officers quickly located the car and pulled the suspect over. Inside they found the small child unrestrained and crawling over the stolen merchandise in the backseat. The driver had no logical response for why he brought his child. The suspect was booked into jail and police contacted CPS for follow up. Officers picked up a car seat from the station so the child could be driven safely to a family member’s house.

June 2

Prowl: At 4:30 p.m. in the 17700 block of Northeast 76th Street, a thief smashed a car window and stole a laptop and credit cards from a parked car. There was no suspect information immediately available.
