She had suffered total memory loss and could not identify who she was or where she lived. Paperwork in her possession included a family name and Enumclaw address.

The man stated he was wanted on an arrest warrant, which turned out to be true. The man was given a ride to a rural Enumclaw address and advised to take care of the King County warrant, which stemmed from a charge of driving under the influence.

GROCERY THEFT: Police received a report Dec. 15 of groceries being stolen from a city store. Witnesses watched as subjects took groceries and loaded them into a black Lincoln.

By the time police determined the exact location of the suspect vehicle, it was gone.
