The following is a sample from the Bellevue Police Department’s Bellevue Beat Blog:

Jan. 21

Credit toss: At 2:01 p.m. in the 1600 block of 140th Ave. NE, customers told employees that a male subject threw three credit cards behind the employee-only counter, before fleeing on foot. The credit cards belonged to three different people and have not been reported stolen yet.

Church thieving: At 5:41 p.m. in the 4200 block of 124th Ave. SE, three suspects approached the victim behind a church and threatened him. They stole his iPhone and speaker. Authorities located the suspects 15 minutes later, walking at SE 38th Street and Factoria Boulevard. Three suspects were detained and positively identified by the victim. They were arrested for robbery — three booked into youth detention and one booked into jail.

Bathroom shooting: At 11:53 p.m. in the 1000 block of Northup Way, an unknown suspect fired two rounds through a bathroom window toward a juvenile female. The female was not hit or injured. There were no witnesses to the crime. The investigation is ongoing.

Shots fired: At 3:03 a.m. in the 800 block of 164th Place NE, two bullets were fired into a home and narrowly missed a female sleeping inside. She was not injured. Officers could not locate any witnesses, but recovered both bullets and their casings from the scene. The incident is believed to be related to the bathroom shooting.

Jan. 22

High school car theft: At 11:55 a.m. at Bellevue High School, witnesses saw two suspects stealing cars in the school parking lot and crashing into other cars in the process. One suspect fled before police arrived. The second suspect was arrested and booked into youth detention. Both suspects were prowling several cars in the parking lot.

Jan. 23

Nature neglect: At 7:32 a.m. in the 5800 block of 172nd Place SE, a city of Bellevue forest technician reported that someone had cut several city-owned trees and bushes on a city property near Lakemont trail. The technician suspects the owner of a nearby home cut the trees to gain a better view. A report was completed and forwarded to prosecuting attorney for review.

Only the essentials: At 4:03 p.m. in the 15100 block of SE 38th Street, a suspect stole baby formula and alcohol. The suspect was arrested and charged.

Jan. 26

Just go home: At 11:55 p.m. in the 13900 block of SE 46th Street, while addressing a citizen complaint and attempting to write a parking ticket, an officer was approached by an extremely intoxicated suspect who interfered with the ticket issuing process. The officer repeatedly asked the subject to move along and was eventually escorted to his nearby home. While trying to complete the ticket issuing process, the suspect again approached the officer and was taken into custody for obstruction. The officer contacted a sober family friend and the suspect was released with an advisement of a court summons in the mail.
