FRAUD: A city resident told police Jan. 11 she had received a check through the mail, along with instructions to cash it. The check was turned over to police who determined it was fraudulent.
TRASH DISPUTE: A Cole Street complainant told police Jan. 11 a neighbor had thrown garbage into his yard and continues to tell at family members. Police contacted the father of the suspect and told him the situation should cease or someone would be arrested.
UNWANTED: Police responded the evening of Jan. 11 to a call regarding an unwanted person at a Kibler Avenue residence. The subject was taken into custody for fourth-degree assault and booked at the police station.
AID NEEDED: Officers responded shortly after 7 p.m. Jan. 10 to a Chinook Avenue address and soon determined medical aid was needed. A subject was then transported to St. Elizabeth Hospital.
WELFARE CHECK: Police were asked Jan. 10 to check on the welfare of a young person. The child had not been to school since the holiday break and the school had been notified of any troubles. Police contacted the mother, who indicated the child had been sick. She was advised to notify the school as soon as possible. The police dispatch center also called a school counselor to update the status of the student.
WARRANT ARRESTS: Police were notified Jan. 10 a subject wanted on a Black Diamond arrest warrant was in the Enumclaw courtroom. The subject was taken into custody and booked; the warrant had been issued for the subject's failure to appear in court on charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. That night, a man arrived at the police station, surrendering due to a Maple Valley arrest warrant; the warrant was issued because he failed to appear in court on an assault charge.
VEHICLE SHOT: Two people arrived in the lobby of the Enumclaw police station at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 10, reporting they had been followed by subjects in a pickup who fired a weapon at their vehicle. Further investigation revealed the suspects might have believed the victims were stealing mail; in fact, they were delivering a weekly newspaper. The victims remained in the police station lobby until authorities from the King County Sheriff's Department arrived; the situation was turned over to deputies since it had originated outside city limits.
DOMESTIC DISPUTE: Police took a call the morning of Jan. 9 from a Cole Street resident who reported a man was pounding on her door, yelling and swearing. An officer contacted both parties involved and determined the disagreement was verbal only. The man involved agreed to leave the scene.
DOG BITE: A citizen called police Jan. 9, reporting being bitten by a dog while on a morning walk. The incident occurred near a Cinkovich Street residence. The victim did not request medical assistance, but was advised to report the incident. An officer contacted both the victim and the dog's owner and collected information that was to be turned over to King County Animal Control.
TOO CLOSE: Officers learned Jan. 9 of people who were protesting/soliciting at the doorway of a Cole Street location. An employee advised them of the need to stay 25 feet from the door. An officer responded and found the people on the sidewalk, allowing plenty of room for people to pass by.
RESISTING ARREST: Police attempted to contact an individual Jan. 9 at a residence on Southeast 424th Street. The subject fled and will now be charged with resisting arrest.
VEHICLE PROWL: A Washington Avenue resident told police Jan. 9 that a window had been smashed from a vehicle and two briefcases were stolen.
