Friday, June 29

7:57 a.m. – Theft of Motor Vehicle: An employee of an auto repair shop called police after a vehicle had been stolen off their lot sometime over night on the 18000 block of Redmond Way. The vehicle was found the following day parked in a fire lane at a Redmond apartment complex. No suspects have been identified.

Multiple Bike Thefts: RPD has received multiple reports of bikes being stolen from locked cages in local apartment complex parking garages. The thieves are breaking into these cages and grabbing bikes that have not been additionally secured or ones with locks that are easy to cut. Police recommend securing bikes with U-locks (preferably more than one) and locking the bike to a stationary object. Locals should also record their bike’s serial number to increase the chance of getting it back if it is stolen.

6:30 a.m. – Burglary/Theft of Motor Vehicle: A woman awoke in her apartment to find someone had entered her home while she was sleeping, stolen her purse and car keys, and then taken her car parked outside on the 16500 block of NE 37th St. The suspect apparently entered her apartment through her sliding glass patio door. The apartment was combed for evidence and fingerprints and the investigation continues.

1:05 p.m. – A woman reported she had been a victim of a fraudster who swindled her into giving up personal information. The victim received a call from someone claiming to be an officer from the Social Security Administration. The caller told the victim she would lose her social security benefits if she did not provide her social security number, date of birth and other details. Government organizations never ask for these kinds of details over the phone and any caller who does should be considered suspicious.
