Bonney Lake Police news

COLORFUL CRASH: Officers were called Sept. 1 to a hit and run report. Witnesses told officers a white van was tailgating them, but when they pulled over to let the van pass, the van’s drivers-side tires hit the curb, spun out and collided with a tree, which is how the scene looked when officers arrived. Witnesses also told officers the driver ran away from the scene. It was clear the van belonged to a painting company, as paint supplies and ladders were thrown about. Officers received a phone call from the owner of the van who gave officers the name of the driver. Officers believe there is probably cause for a hit and run and negligent driving.

CAUGHT BY PLAINS-CLOTHES: Officers responded to a shoplift on Sept. 22. Loss prevention informed officers that they were doing plain-clothes floor surveillance when she noticed a male subject remove a pistol holster from its packaging and conceal it under his clothes. He then met up with a female, who hid several pieces of clothing in a plastic bag. Loss prevention then watched the the male exit the store to keep watching the female. Loss prevention stopped the woman after she left the store without paying for the clothes and detained her. The woman was cited and trespassed. The man was identified but not located.
