Black Diamond, Buckley police blotter | May 24 – June 12

Open beer while driving, a juvie shoplifter, and a party on McKay Lane.

The Enumclaw police blotter will be available after the week of June 20.


May 24

– Officers were called out to locate two missing juveniles around 6:12 p.m. They were located on the Foothills Trail near SR 165.

May 29

– Police observed a car driving on S. Naches Street around 8:43 p.m. and ran its plates, learning the driver had a suspended license. Officers pulled the driver over and saw an open beer in plain view. Finding the driver impaired, he was arrested on DUI and driving without an ignition interlock device.

– Officers pulled over a truck on SR 410 for a vehicle equipment violation around 11:21 p.m. The driver had a suspended license, and officers observed unopened boxes of tools in the truck. It was later determined the tools, and some paint, were stolen from Home Depot, so the truck was seized and the driver arrested.

May 30

– Police watched a motorcycle driver “pop a wheelie” while on SR 410 between vehicles around 9:11 a.m. After pulling him over, officers learned the driver had a warrant out for his arrest, had a suspended driver’s license, and — after arresting him — found about 100 pills on his person, suspected to contain fentanyl, as well as some meth.

June 4

– Officers watched as a truck failed to properly signal as it turned onto Naches Street around 12:17 a.m. After pulling the car over, police smelled intoxicants and the man had slurred speech; he was arrested for DUI.

June 5

– Officers observed a red truck driving erratically on SR 410 and failing to signal property before pulling into a gas station around 11:15 a.m. Police contacted the driver, who admitted to smoking meth an hour before getting into the car; he was arrested for DUI, and a firearm was seized.


June 10

– Officers were called out to Lake Sawyer Grocery for a theft report around 9:30 a.m. The suspect was a juvenile, who was trespassed.

– Police responded to a report of a recently-seen stolen truck on 229th Avenue SE around 4:45 p.m. Officers found the truck without license plates and parked in a handicap spot; it was towed for being illegally parked.

June 11

– Officers were dispatched to 3rd Avenue to an unwanted subject report around 9:15 p.m. When police arrived, they were informed the subject in question had already left. Officers later contacted the subject and told him not to go by the property again.

– Police were called out to a party complaint on Mason Street around 11 p.m. The reporting party told officers the unit in question was an Airbnb with a limit of five individuals. Police contacted the people in the unit and requested everyone leave the area.

– Officers were again called out to a party complaint, this time on McKay Lane around midnight. Police heard multiple people in the backyard being unreasonably loud, so they asked the homeowner to quiet down.

June 12

– Police were called back to McKay Lane around 12:30 a.m. Officers again heard unreasonable noise and contacted the homeowner, who agreed to turn off the music and have everyone come inside.
