Oct. 18

– An 11 p.m. traffic stop in the 25100 block of Roberts Drive turned up a motorist who was driving under the influence. He was arrested and booked into the Issaquah jail while his vehicle was impounded.

– City police were dispatched just after 6 p.m. to the 25700 block of Lawson Street where they assisted King County deputies who were investigating thefts that had taken place within their jurisdiction.

Oct. 17

– Officers responded to the 23500 block of Roberts Drive after taking a report of potentially-offensive political signs being placed in the area. Police searched but were unable to locate any illegal signs.

Oct. 16

– A city officer was contacted by a King County deputy who wished to confirm that an arrest warrant had been issued against an individual in county custody. The warrant was confirmed and city police met with county authorities to exchange the individual. The subject was then booked into the Enumclaw jail.

– Officers were dispatched to a business on Third Avenue with regard to a request for citizen assistance with a civil matter. Upon arrival it was discovered one of the parties was wanted on an arrest warrant. The individual was detained but later released at the request of the originating agency.

Oct. 15

– It was 3:20 a.m. when officers contacted a man – who was not wearing pants – near the intersection of Third Avenue and Roberts Drive. After determining he was not in need of mental or medical assistance, police found him a pair of pants and then provided a ride to a bus stop.

Oct. 13

– Police headed to the 23300 block of 289 th Street after hearing of a dispute. It seems the caller’s new boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend had arrived at the home and refused to leave. She was gone, however, by the time police arrived. She was later contacted by officers and advised to stay away from the 289th Street location.

– At 12:23 a.m. an officer stopped a vehicle at state Route 169 and Pass Road because it was being driven with a blown-out front tire. Subsequent investigation revealed the driver had been reported missing in Tacoma. It also was determined the driver had been involved in a collision at an unknown location. The driver was found to be suffering from a medical condition and was transported by TriMed to a nearby hospital.

Oct. 12

– Police were dispatched shortly after 11 p.m. to a Third Avenue business where a man was reportedly going through the trash. The man said he often rummages through trash, looking for interesting items others throw away. Officers determined the business was secure and undamaged.
