DANGEROUS DRIVING, DEATH: Officers were on patrol on Oct. 17 when they came across several cars with their hazard lights on. A witness told officers a car was speeding on the road and lost control while taking a sharp corner, crashing through a street sign and a fence. Officers attempted to find the car, but instead found a passenger, who told officers he got out of the car after the crash. The passenger called officers later with information about the man driving the car, but he was contacted by the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office, telling him that the same man who was driving the car had stolen the passenger’s motorcycle, crashed and died in the hospital. Officers confirmed the death and checked again with witnesses that the man was driving the car in the previous crash.

SWINDLED: Officers were contacted Oct. 18 when a woman reported being scammed out of $3,400. According to the woman, she received a letter in the mail stating she won some money. She called the number and confirmed she had won the $3,400. She then received a check in the mail and was instructed to put the check in her bank account, withdraw the $3,400 and deposit it into an account provided by the man she talked to on the phone. Later, her bank called her and said the deposits were fraudulent and needed to contact the police. Officers told her the fraud may have happened out of the country and would limit the time officers could spend on the case.
