Threats to police | Bonney Lake Police Blotter

Officers were serving as the Bonney Lake High School resource officer on Sept. 21, investigating reports of threats made on the previous day. It was reported to officers that a father of a student called the school, believing his son was being bullied and the school was doing nothing about it, and made threats toward the school's safety officer.

SHOPLIFT IN PROGRESS: On Sept. 18 officers were called to a possible shoplift in progress. Officers were told a female was placing Safeway merchandise into a reusable bag. Officers arrived on scene, initially unable to find the woman until they located her in the woman’s bathroom. A records check revealed she had a warrant for her arrest out of Lakewood. Since she didn’t leave the store with the unpaid-for merchandise, Safeway only wanted her trespassed. Officers transported her to Lakewood police.

THREATS TO POLICE: Officers were serving as the Bonney Lake High School resource officer on Sept. 21, investigating reports of threats made on the previous day. It was reported to officers that a father of a student called the school, believing his son was being bullied and the school was doing nothing about it, and made threats toward the school’s safety officer. Officers later spoke to the man, who admitted he did not handle the situation properly, but felt that school staff exaggerated what he said over the phone. The dad agreed to stay away from the school and the district office and to handle these sorts of situations calmly in the future. The report of the incident was forwarded to the city prosecutor for review.
