NO COOPERATION: An officer responded to the Enumclaw fire station at 9 p.m. Sept. 18 to assist firefighters. A woman initially needed medical assistance, then wanted to speak to county and city authorities about a report she had filed in Enumclaw. Once an officer arrived, she refused to provide any information and also refused medical treatment.
DOG COMPLAINT: A citizen notified police Sept. 18, concerned about two dogs that are allowed to run loose. One of the animals reportedly chased a girl on a bicycle. An officer contacted the dogs' owner, who was advised of city ordinances relating to care and control of pets.
RESIDENTIAL ALARM: Police responded the morning of Sept. 18 to an alarm at a home on Olie Ann Place. A female at the home did not have the code to helot the alarm but it was determined she was authorized to be there.
GRAFFITI: Police were asked Sept. 17 to provide extra patrol around a Kibler Avenue address due to graffiti having been painted on windows.
FAMILY FRAUD: A case of fraud, stemming from the theft of a credit card, was reported to police Sept. 17. An officer made contact and, upon investigation, revealed the suspect to be a family member. The reporting party was to contact police within a couple of days, advising what action was desired.
DON'T DRIVE: Police received a hang-up 911 call shortly before 10 p.m. Sept. 16, then received a busy signal on two return calls. An officer responded to the Jensen Street address where the call originated and found a highly-intoxicated woman with a revoked driver's license who was refusing to take a taxi home. She agreed to walk.
KEEP HOOPS QUIET: A city resident called police shortly after 4 a.m. Sept. 15, reporting a group of 10 to 15 young adults were playing basketball at a Kibler Avenue site. Police made contact and the group agreed to keep quiet.
SIGNS DOWN: Police were alerted twice the morning of Sept. 15 to stop signs missing from busy intersections. The first call was about a sign missing from the corner of state Route 410 and Semanski Street; an officer put up a temporary sign and notified the appropriate city crew of the need for a replacement. The second call concerned a sign missing from Southeast 440th Street Southeast and 244th Avenue Southeast; city police put up a temporary sign and notified King County authorities.
CYCLIST HELP: Police were notified the afternoon of Sept. 15 to a bicyclist who was weaving in and out of traffic on Griffin Avenue. Both a city officer and Washington State Patrol trooper made contact. Medical assistance was sought and the bike rider was transported to St. Elizabeth Hospital.
