Felony Warrant: While on a routine patrol, officers contacted a random check of a vehicle’s license and pulled the car over because the registered owner has a revoked driving status. Once contact with the driver was made, officers determined she was not the registered owner of the car. After a records check, it came back that the driver had a Benton County felony arrest warrant. The officers took her into custody and transported her to the Pierce County Jail for booking.

Hit and Run: Officers responded to a reported hit and run shortly before 7 p.m. The vehicle that struck fled the scene because the driver panicked but was followed by the vehicle he hit until the car pulled over. Once officers made contact, the driver of the vehicle who fled had no proof of insurance. He was issued a criminal citation for the hit and run and an infraction for failure to provide proof of insurance and for inattentive driving. The driver who’s vehicle was hit had excessive damage to the front passenger side of her vehicle. She was treated on scene by East Pierce Fire and Rescue.

Stolen Vehicle: Officers responded to a state Route 410 store around 9:30 p.m. for a report of a missing vehicle. The reporting party stated she went into the store for roughly 20 minutes and came out to find her vehicle missing from the parking lot. The officer was unable to contact the store’s loss prevention and obtain surveillance footage. No suspect information was available at the time of the report. Two days later on July 5, the reporting officer was contacted to confirm the recovery of the missing vehicle. It was returned to the reporting party.
