The police department responded to 622 incidents in the week of June 9 through June 15, 2013. The following is a brief summary of some of the more notable contacts:

Theft, 6/10/13

400 Block of 102nd Dr. SE

A 35-year-old female called to report that her daughter’s white and pink bicycle was taken from their front porch sometime during the night. She was able to provide a serial number for the bike and it was entered into the system as stolen. There is no suspect information at this time.

DWLS 3°/Drug Possession, 6/11/13

91st Ave. NE and SR 204

An officer on patrol witnessed a vehicle being driven by a 60-year-old male who he had pulled over a few days prior for driving on a suspended license. A computer check showed that the driver’s license was still in a suspended status with the Department of Licensing. The suspect was in possession of narcotics which he claimed to be holding for his girlfriend. He was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on drug possession charges.

Assist Law, 6/11/13

2900 Block Grade Rd.

A 50-year-old male was stopped after nearly colliding head-on with an officer on patrol. The male immediately handed the officer his driver’s license when she made contact with him but had difficulty locating his proof of insurance and vehicle registration. His speech was slurred and his movements were slow. A Washington State Patrol Trooper responded to the scene to process the driver for Driving under the Influence.

Collision/Hit and Run/DUI, 6/14/13

11200 Block of S. Lake Stevens Rd.

An Officer responded to a report of a single vehicle collision. It was reported the vehicle hit a utility pole which may have caused a fire. The 47-year-old suspect tried to start his vehicle after the collision and when he wasn’t successful, tried to flee the scene. A witness pointed out the suspect who quickened his pace when he saw the police and refused to comply with the officer’s commands. He was apprehended and placed in restraints. There was a strong odor of alcohol and the suspect asked about what he had hit. Washington State Patrol arrived to process him for DUI. Officers remained on scene for many hours keeping the scene clear of people because of the downed power lines. Public Works assisted with the road closure until PUD flaggers arrived.
