Black Diamond police blotter | July 6 - 12


July 12

– A traffic stop in the 31100 block of Third Avenue turned up more than expected. It was 7:17 p.m. when officers stopped a vehicle due to a registration violation. It was determined that the driver was operating the vehicle with a suspended license and, additionally, a passenger in the automobile was wanted on a felony warrant. The driver was cited and released, the passenger was arrested and booked into the King County jail and the auto was impounded.

July 11

– A suspect faces two charges stemming from an afternoon report of a missing person. While investigating, police contacted a man at a Third Avenue business and first discovered he was actively violating a no-contact order stemming from a domestic violence incident. Then, while searching the suspect, officers located three grams of heroin in the pocket of his pants. He was arrested on the first charged and booked into the Enumclaw jail. Felony drug charges were to be filed with the King County Prosecutor’s Office.

– A juvenile called police to report he had been in a physical altercation with his older brother. Police arrived at the scene and so did the boys’ father who dealt with the situation. Medical personnel evaluated the caller and eventually cleared the scene.

– A solar-powered sign that uses radar to tell drivers the speed they are traveling was found to be missing from the 29800 block of 224th Avenue Southeast. The incident was being investigated.

July 10

– A citizen contacted officers at the station, hoping to turn over some shotgun shells. Police took the items and booked them into evidence, headed for destruction.

– Several agencies responded at 3:30 p.m. to the scene of an automobile accident in the 33100 block of Third Avenue. Fire personnel were already there and a Washington State Patrol trooper arrived to take the accident report. Police provided traffic control until the WSP and Tri-Med cleared the scene.

July 9

– A citizen notified police of a vehicle speeding on Pacific Street. When they arrived, the complainant reported he had spoken with the father of the driver and the father advised he would be speaking with his teenage son. No other action was taken.

– A suspicious woman was peering through the front-door window of a home on Adams Street at 7 p.m., prompting a call to the police. When they arrived, the complainant noted that the woman had entered a neighboring home. Police investigated and found the woman was a guest at the second house and had been confused about where she was headed.

July 7

– Shortly after noon, three vehicles were involved in a traffic collision in the 32600 block of Third Avenue. No one was hurt and one vehicle was towed from the scene.

– Enumclaw officers asked for assistance as they dealt with a call of a person with a firearm at a Charwila Lane address. Black Diamond police responded and stood by as the EPD investigated.

July 6

– A dispute between Fifth Street neighbors had police responding at approximately 1 p.m. Officers contacted both parties and issued a no-trespass letter to one; the second person was given information about obtaining an anti-harassment order from the court system.
