March 4

Stolen car: At 6 p.m. in the 7300 block of Bear Creek Parkway, an unknown prowler rummaged through two cars parking in a mall garage. One victim did not notice any items missing from their car and no signs of forced entry. The other victim reported their wallet had been taken.

March 5

Out of gas: At 7:14 a.m. in the 12300 block of 134th Court Northeast, police investigated a report of theft after someone siphoned gasoline out of two parked vehicles. Officers collected evidence that is being processed. The suspect has not yet been identified.

Department store grab: At 7:18 p.m. in the 17600 block of Union Hill Road, officers arrested a female suspected of shoplifting clothing from a department store. She also had illegal drug paraphernalia and tools associated with retail theft in her possession. The suspect was booked into jail.

March 7

Burglary: At 1:16 p.m. in the 16500 block of Northeast 35th Court, police were called to the scene of a burglary. The suspect busted open the front door of an unoccupied apartment, ransacked the bedroom, before leaving unseen. Someone walking by noticed the apartment door was kicked in and alerted the apartment office. No suspect has been located but evidence is being processed.

Scam: At 2:16 p.m. in the 16300 block of Cleveland Street, a woman called police after she fell victim to a person posing as a Seattle police homicide detective. The suspect told the victim that her personal bank accounts had been compromised and advised her to send her money to another account to protect her investments. She was also told to mail cash to an address in Florida for her own protection. When the victim looked up the number the suspect called her from, it came back as the Seattle Police Department homicide unit. The investigation is ongoing. The suspect spoofed the official phone number.

March 10

Disturbance: At 8:47 p.m. in the 15700 block of Redmond Way, a 58-year-old male was arrested after he caused an obscenity-laced disturbance in a local coffee shop. Employees called the police after the suspect broke a chair inside the store and was screaming at people in the shop. Officers trespassed the man who then continued his fit on the sidewalk by throwing signs into oncoming traffic, which barely missed a vehicle. The belligerent male refused all directions to stop and attempted to flee from officers. He was ultimately detained and booked on suspicion of disorderly conducted, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest.
