GROCERY HEIST: Three males stole groceries Sept. 2 by fleeing a Roosevelt Avenue business. They departed in a beige-colored sedan, southbound on Blake Street. They were not located.
CYCLE TROUBLES: City police, King County deputies and Washington State Patrol troopers received multiple complaints the afternoon of Sept. 2 regarding a large group of motorcycle riders cruising the area.

VEHICLE PROWLS: Police learned Aug. 31 of a rash of vehicle prowls the previous evening. Three vehicles on Olsen Place were entered. There was no damage, but everything had been gone through. A few dollars in change was missing from one of the vehicles. Two vehicles on Rainier Avenue were targeted, with cash and an emergency roadside safety kit taken; the emergency kit was later found dumped along the road. Three vehicles were gone through on Berninger Street, with a motorcycle helmet and jacket taken. Another prowl was reported at Warner Avenue and state Route 410.3
TWO CHARGED: Police initiated a traffic stop the morning of Aug. 31 on a vehicle with expired license tabs, but wound up arresting two men for theft and providing false information. A Honda generator was recovered and returned to its owner. Police followed up at a Griffin Avenue location, where they recovered a stolen racing bike in a hotel room; it, too, was returned. The owner of both items had reported them stolen from a vehicle on Franklin Street.
