Weapon Violation: Officers while monitoring traffic on SR 410, they observed a vehicle driving westbound. After a routine records check, officers learned the registered owner has a suspended license. Officers pulled the vehicle over and made contact with the driver. She was not the registered owner and said she was in the process of purchasing the vehicle. Officers noticed the male passenger becoming increasingly nervous as officers continued to speak with the driver. The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department had spoken with Bonney Lake police officers earlier in the day and told them they had information that the passenger may be in the area. As other officers arrived on scene, they contacted the passenger and asked him to step out of the vehicle. After a search of his persons, officers found a taser and 9 MM bullets. With consent given, officers then searched the vehicle for a firearm and found a 9 MM in the driver’s purse. It is believed the passenger put it there and the driver was released at the scene. The passenger was arrested and taken to the police department and the vehicle was taken into custody. At the time of the report, this case was forwarded to a detective for follow up.

Stolen Vehicle: Officers responded to the report of a stolen vehicle. The reporting party told officers he was inside his home when he heard someone drive off with his car that was parked outside. He told officers he had left the doors to his car unlocked but all car keys were accounted for. At the time of the report, there was no further action taken by officers.
