Police Blotter



• A patrolling officer spotted two vehicles Jan. 22 that had not moved for several months. They were parked in the vicinity of Jensen Street and Battersby Avenue. Impound warnings were placed on both.


• Police officers were called to a residence on 424th Avenue Southeast to assist fire department personnel who were having problems with a combative patient. When police arrived, the patient had departed and was headed to Enumclaw Regional Hospital. Fire personnel also went to the hospital and confirmed the patient had arrived.


• Police arrived at the Enumclaw Youth Center Jan. 22 after hearing of an assault. After investigating, it was determined to be a “mutually instigated altercation.” The situation was to be resolved the following day and one of the subjects declined to make a report.


• A Jan. 22 traffic stop in the vicinity of Cole Street and Stevenson Avenue ended with an officer confiscating drug paraphernalia. No charges were to be filed. A passenger was cited for being a minor in possession of alcohol.


• A Porter Street resident reported Jan. 21 that a burglary had occurred while he was out of town. The victim was to fill out a report and return it to the police.


• Police responded Jan. 21 after hearing that a helicopter had landed in a field at the intersection of state Route 410 and Farman Street.


• A traffic stop in a Griffin Avenue parking lot resulted in the driver being arrested and booked on drug charges.


• An officer flagged down a vehicle Jan. 20 in a Garrett Street parking lot and contacted the two occupants. The driver was eventually cited for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, then relased.


• An officer responded Jan. 20 to a Cole Street address after hearing of an altercation between a man, his fiancée and his sister. An investigation determined that a physical assault had occurred between the two females but the situation did not meet the criteria for domestic violence. Both parties declined to file charges.



• At 1:15 a.m. Monday officers were dispatched to a Park Avenue address to check out a loud music coming from a stereo in one of the apartments. When police made contact with the apartment’s occupant, they asked that he turn down the music and also move a car that was blocking the sidewalk and parked two feet away from a fire hydrant. There was no attempt to relocate the vehicle, so it was impounded.


• Early Sunday morning a 35-year-old Buckley man was pulled over at the 28700 block on state Route 410 for speeding and lane travel and has found to be operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol. The male subject was transported to the Buckley jail where he was issued multiple citations and was booked.


• An Albert Street couple reported 10 p.m. Friday that the windshield and the driver’s side window of their vehicle had sustained an estimated $600 in damage. The shattered glass appeared to have been caused by either a BB gun or a pellet gun and there were no suspects or witnesses at the time of the report.
