Driver stopped once, stopped twice | Buckley police reports July 10-13

STOPPED TWICE: Following a routine traffic stop at 2 a.m. July 13, the driver was found to be in possession of a suspended license; an officer issued a criminal citation and warned the man not to drive. Minutes later, the man drove past the same officer. He was pulled over, placed under arrest and booked into jail while his vehicle was impounded.

INTERLOCK: A speeding vehicle was stopped shortly before 1 a.m. July 13 on state Route 410. It was determined the vehicle was supposed to be equipped with an interlock device; it was not, so the driver was arrested. Because a passenger was intoxicated, the vehicle was left at the scene.

YOUNG, DRUNK: An officer was on patrol at 5:39 p.m. July 13 when he spotted an 18-year-old male carrying beer and showing signs of intoxication. The teen was arrested and later released with a citation and a court date.

WILKESON THEFT: A Wilkeson man told police someone had entered his garage and stolen hunting equipment.

SCAMMED: An officer was dispatched the evening of July 12 to an address where a senior citizen had given money, via phone, with the hope of winning $1 million. The woman later realized she was being scammed.

TWO CHARGED: A routine traffic stop July 11 turned up a female driver who had a suspended license and also was wanted on an arrest warrant. Because no jail space could be found, she was given a criminal citation. Her male passenger was arrested for being in violation of a no-contact order and making false statements to a public servant. He was booked into jail and the vehicle was impounded.

DRIVER ARRESTED: A vehicle was stopped July 10 due to a registration issue and it turned out the driver was wanted on an arrest warrant and also was driving with a suspended license. He was booked into jail and the vehicle he was driving was impounded.
