MULTIPLE CITATIONS: A Sequim, Wash., resident received an infraction and multiple criminal citations the afternoon of June 23 after being stopped at a River Avenue intersection. After stopping the 22-year-old for a traffic violation police found he was driving with a suspended license; he later was found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia.

ASSAULT CHARGE: Officers were dispatched the evening of July 23 to a Cottage Street location. There, they contacted a male suspect, 26, and a male victim, 25, both from Buckley. Officers determined both an assault and harassment had occurred; the suspect was arrested and booked into jail.

DRUNK AND YOUNG: At 1:21 a.m. June 21 officers stopped a vehicle at state Route 410 and Jefferson Avenue for an equipment violation. The passenger, an 18-year-old from Enumclaw, was found to be intoxicated. She was arrested for being a minor in possession of alcohol, given a criminal citation and released at the scene.

DRUNK DRIVER: Officers watched at 1:49 a.m. July 21 as a driver committed a  traffic violation. The vehicle was stopped and the 51-year-old woman behind the wheel was determined to be driving under the influence. The Lake Tapps resident was given both an infraction and criminal citation.

DRUG CHARGES: Police were dispatched at 8:46 p.m. June 20 to a Jefferson Avenue location after hearing of possible drug activity. They contacted a suspect vehicle, which was occupied by a 20-year-old Kent man and an 18-year-old man from Moses Lake. Both were arrested for possession of both marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

AUTO ISSUE: Officers contacted an Enumclaw motorist the evening of June 16 regarding a possibly disabled vehicle. The man said he was test-driving the car, but a routine check of license plates showed it as stolen. The driver took police to meet with the registered owner, who confirmed the vehicle had not been stolen; rather, the owner said her brother had likely stolen the plates and put them on the vehicle. The stolen plates were removed and the vehicle was returned to its owner.
