BIKE THEFT: At 8:50 a.m. April 25, a citizen reported the theft of her son’s bicycle from their 208th Avenue East residence. She said she believed the culprit was an area male who she knew to have been kicked out of his home that day. The bicycle was entered as stolen in the state and national crime database.

BURGLARY TOOLS: At 2:32 a.m. April 27, an officer patrolling Church Lake Road East observed a man with an LED flashlight crouching in the shadows next to a bicycle, rummaging through a tan backpack. The officer turned around and observed the man walking eastbound on the road without the bicycle. An emergency stop was initiated and an assisting officer was called to the scene. The man was asked if he lived at the residence where he was first observed, and he said no. He at first denied having a bike. When the assisting officer arrived, the original officer found the bike pushed into the bushes outside the house. When asked again about the bike, the man said he was tired of riding it and put it in the bushes for safekeeping until his friend could bring him back to retrieve it; he said he did not want to get a ticket for riding without a helmet. The man granted permission for police to search his backpack. They found, among his personal effects, tools commonly used for burglary, intravenous drug paraphernalia, and plastic bags containing crystalline residue. The man denied having intent to commit burglaries, and stated that the white substance was methamphetamine for personal use. The man was arrested and transported to Enumclaw Jail, where he was booked for possession of burglary tools. A citation for drug possession was mailed to the man following a field drug testing kit that confirmed the crystalline substance found was methamphetamine.

BURGLARY: At 9:19 a.m. May 1, an officer was sent to Church Lake Drive in reference to a prior residential burglary. The resident reported unknown suspects had entered his garage overnight and stolen a battery charger. He said he believed the suspects entered through an unlocked and unsecured door, as their were no signs of forced entry. He said he did not intend to file a report with his insurance company, but wanted police to be aware of the matter.

MISSING FROG: At 2 p.m. May 1, a citizen reported the theft of a decorative frog from his front yard. It had last been seen April 29. The man reported he had heard juveniles running around the neighborhood that evening, but had not seen anyone in the vicinity of his yard. The artwork was described as blue and black aluminum, approximately 30 inches long and 18 inches tall. A report was completed for informational purposes.

VEHICLE PROWL: At 10:09 p.m. May 5, an officer was flagged down in the Fred Meyer parking lot, where a woman reported her vehicle had been prowled. She stated she had parked almost 30 minutes earlier and returned to her car to find the passenger window smashed out. A purse containing only makeup had been stolen out of the vehicle. The officer provided the woman a case number.

DRIVEWAY THEFT: At 8:40 a.m. May 6, a 193rd Avenue East resident reported the theft of tools from his driveway. More than $1,500 worth of heavy and light duty hardware — three of the items secured by bike chain — had been taken from under a tarp in his driveway. He told police he believed their was more than one suspect due to the weight of two generators among the inventory. The responding officer provided a case number and advised the man to monitor Craigslist and local pawn shops.

WARRANT: At 1:59 p.m. May 7, an officer on patrol observed a vehicle traveling northbound on West Tapps Highway with several large cracks in the driver’s line of sight, cause for a verbal warning. An emergency stop was initiated and a records check on the driver’s license showed outstanding arrest warrants for assault and minor in possession. The man was arrested and transported to Pierce County Jail, and issued an infraction for having no proof of insurance.
