April 29

Canopy theft: At 2:10 p.m. in the 9000 block of 151st Avenue Northeast, a detailed witness description aided officers in tracking down a thief suspected of stealing a truck canopy from a Redmond home. The victim saw the 32-year-old suspect pull up in a truck, load the canopy onto a flatbed trailer and leave. Police located him about 20 minutes later, booked him into jail and returned the stolen property to the rightful owner.

Prowls: Overnight in the 16500 block of Northeast 36th Court and vicinity, two people reported someone prowled their cars overnight, taking credit cards and other valuables from their unlocked cars. No suspect information was available.

April 30

Burglary: At 5:16 a.m. in the 11600 block of 170th Court Northeast, police investigated a break-in at a local home where personal property and two cars parked in the garage were stolen. It appears the suspects gained entry to the home by breaking into a car parked in the driveway and using the garage door remote. Then they entered through the garage’s interior door. Evidence gathered at the scene is being processed and the investigation is ongoing.

Car theft: At 6:30 p.m. in the 5500 block of 161st Place Northeast, a car stolen from a Redmond home during the day was located in Tukwila a few hours later. Tukwila police arrested two males in possession of the car and booked them on multiple charges. The vehicle was returned to its owner.

Get your swerve on: At 9:02 p.m. at Redmond Way and Willows Road, police arrested a 29-year-old driver on suspicion of DUI after she swerved all over the road and appeared to be driving dangerously. Numerous tests for impairment confirmed the officer’s suspicions that she was intoxicated and she was booked into jail.

Skate park fight: At 6:46 p.m. in the 8400 block of 161st Avenue Northeast, after a fight broke out at a local skate park, a 25-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of harassment and assault. Witnesses showed officers video of the suspect throwing coffee on the victim and threatening him with a dumbbell.

May 5

While you were sleeping: At 5:29 a.m. in the 10000 block of 161st Place Northeast, a man discovered a burglar had stolen items from inside his home while he was asleep.
