Monday, May 21

4 a.m. – Theft: Thousands of dollars worth of copper wire and other supplies were stolen from a construction site on the 15500 block of NE 31st St. The thieves cut a hole in the fence to access the goods sometime over the weekend. No suspect information was immediately available.

8:57 a.m.– Residential Burglary: A burglar entered a home through an open window while the owner slept upstairs and stole cash before sneaking out the deck door on the 9900 block of 184th Ave NE. The victim found the window screen knocked in where the suspect entered and discovered her purses had been rifled through. Nothing other than the cash in her wallet was missing and neither the victim or her dog heard any disturbance during the night. Police gathered evidence from the scene and sent it to be processed.

3 p.m. – Fraud/ID Theft: A woman reported she had been scammed by a man posing as a person wishing to rent a room from her. The suspect sent an electronic check over an instant money transfer app to allegedly rent a room for his daughter. He sent the check for $4000 more than the rent money and asked the victim to cash it and send it to other people to help them with travel costs. The victim complied, found out the initial check was a fake, and lost the money. Investigation into the names and phone numbers provided to the victim came up as consistent with similar swindles out of Chicago, IL.
