UNKNOWN GAS: On Nov. 25 officers were alerted to a report of an unknown type of alarm going off. When officers arrived on the scene there was no answer at the address and confirmed with neighbors that the previous occupants had moved out recently. Officers conducted a search of the area, smelled natural gas coming from the back yard and called East Pierce Fire and Rescue. Firefighters forced entry to ensure there was no one in the residence and there was no natural gas inside the residence. Firefighters remained on the scene to silence the alarms.
