January 3, 2012

The police department responded to 584 incidents in the week of December 18, 2011 through December 24, 2011. The following is a brief summary of some of the more notable contacts:

Warrant Service/VUCSA, 12/20/11 300 block 91st Ave. NE

While investigating a theft, officers discovered that the 29-year-old victim had an outstanding warrant. The male was arrested and taken to Marysville Jail. During a search of his person, heroin and methamphetamines were found hidden, and an inventory of his backpack included equipment for credit card fraud. The male was transported and booked into Snohomish County Jail for his Warrant and VUCSA. The case is currently under investigation for possible credit card fraud.

Assault/Harassment, 12/20/11

9600 block Market Pl.

A 36-year-old male confronted an aggressive panhandler after he observed the panhandler harassing an elderly female. When the male drove through the parking lot, the panhandler ran after him and got into a fight. During the fight, the suspect pulled a knife and then fled the area. Surveillance video showed the confrontation, but was not close enough to get an idea on the identity of the suspect. A few days later, officers received a call from the victim stating that he saw the suspect from a few nights prior. Officers arrived on scene, and the suspect, a 17-year-old male, was taken into custody. The suspect was released to his father, and charges for Felony Harassment and Assault 4° were referred to the Juvenile Prosecutor.

SR 92 and Callow Rd.

A three vehicle accident occurred with one vehicle ending up in a ditch. The vehicles were towed, and a driver and juvenile passenger were transported to the hospital for possible injuries.

700 block SR 9

An officer walked up on two 19-year-old males parked between two delivery trucks in a parking lot. The male suspects were getting ready to smoke some heroin when they were discovered. The registered owner of the vehicle consented to a search of the vehicle, and drug paraphernalia was recovered. The suspects were released and charges are being forwarded to the Prosecutor.

Assist Fire, 12/23/11

3400 block 99th Ave. NE
