STOLEN FROM YARD: A relative of the owner of a Farrelly Street home reported the theft of patio furniture and a windmill valued at $300. The reporting party believed he knew where the windmill was and the owner was going to pursue the matter. If that contact did not work out, a theft report was to be filed.

ARREST ASSIST: A city officer responded to a Rainier Avenue address the afternoon of Sept. 6 to assist King County authorities with the arrest of a burglary suspect. The issue was handled and the suspect was turned over to deputies.

DISTURBANCE: Police responded at 4 a.m. to a report of a fight in progress on state Route 410 in the vicinity of Farman Road. Contact by an officer responded in the impound of an illegally-parked vehicle that was creating a traffic hazard. The three people involved were released at the scene.
