July 15

Looking for ice cream: At 10:02 p.m. in the 5300 block of 154th Avenue Northeast, a resident came home and found her freezer in her garage open. Someone also took a bag of tools.

It’s one, single digit, day: At 2:39 p.m. in the 17700 block of Northeast 76th Street, a 27-year-old female allegedly rented a van for one day using a prepaid credit card. Then, instead of returning it, she kept the rental van for 10 more days. The rental company called police and the suspect returned the van a few hours later.

I’ll just come back later: At 7:30 p.m. in the 15700 block of Northeast 53rd Street, a burglar entered a woman’s garage by using a remote door opener that was stolen from the woman’s car a few days before. The victim heard the garage door open and saw someone in a green sedan pull into her garage. The suspect quickly backed out of the garage and left.

This is why we have kids: At 5:03 p.m. in the 15900 block of Redmond Way, a 4-year-old child watched as a thief stole a wallet from his mom’s purse as they were grocery shopping. The child was able to provide a description of the pickpocket to police.

July 17

Missing box: At 11 a.m. in the 18400 block of Northeast 95th Street, a woman reported that one of her moving boxes went missing. It contained her jewelry worth about $10,000. She thinks the movers stole it.

July 18

Didn’t see that coming: At 6:26 p.m. in the 2000 block of 148th Avenue Northeast, two suspects grabbed $1,000 worth of eyeglass frames from a local store. There was no video footage available.

July 19

DUI ditz: At 7:57 p.m. in the 8400 block of 154th Avenue Northeast, a 22-year-old driver was arrested after police stopped her for a traffic violation, and she almost fell out of her car when she opened the door. She also smelled strongly of alcohol. There was a crushed up, empty box of wine behind the passenger’s seat.

July 21

Attack: At 5:38 p.m. at Red-Wood Road and Northeast 101st Court, a 24-year old man was arrested on suspicion of attacking a woman who was jogging on the Powerline Trail. The victim told police she was grabbed and her headphones ripped from her ears as she was running. She broke the man’s grip and ran away.
