April 30

Burglary: At 3:30 p.m. in the 900 block of 148th Drive Southeast, officers investigated a residential burglary. The suspect made entry into the home through a small kitchen window. There is no information on the suspects who took items from the home.

Lime car theft: At 12 p.m. in the 10300 block of Northeast 17th Street, suspects have been renting Lime cars to facilitate porch thefts and burglaries in the Northtown area. There have been several thefts. On April 29, an officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the suspect after a reported theft. The suspect fled at a high rate of speed but there was no pursuit. The investigation remains ongoing, as officers work to identify persons of interest.

May 1

Robbery: At 2:25 a.m. in the 100 block of 148th Avenue Northeast, officers responded to investigate a robbery in progress. The suspect implied a weapon in his coat pocket and demanded cash from the register. The suspect took cash and fled the store. The K-9 was unable to locate the suspect.

Burglary: At 2:30 p.m. in the 4100 block of Factoria Boulevard Southeast, two males entered the store and filled a black trash bag with items and ran out of the store without paying. Suspects were possibly involved in other retail thefts. They left in a white vehicle.

May 3

Mind your manners: At 12:32 a.m. in the 500 block of Bellevue Way Northeast, there was a report of two subjects who had possibly snorted cocaine from a table top at a restaurant. The subjects were each issued a notice of trespass and they left the area. An hour later, they returned to the property. The subjects were arrested for trespassing. Both subjects were booked without incident.

Identical fugitives: At 2:01 a.m. in the 1600 block of 140th Avenue Northeast, an officer contacted the suspect because she looked like a different subject with an active arrest warrant. The female was not the subject in question, and showed her ID to the officer. The officer returned to his vehicle and conducted a check of her name and date of birth. The check found the subject also had a warrant out for her arrest. She was booked into jail.

May 5

Loud car: At 11:20 a.m. in the 1400 block of North 30th Street, officers responded to assist Washington State Patrol on a traffic stop — a suspected shooting incident on Interstate 405. State Patrol conducted the stop on the suspect’s vehicle after receiving information about a shooting on the interstate. Three other vehicles were believed to be involved and Bellevue officers stopped the cars. It was discovered that no firearm was discharged and the initial vehicle in the incident had a malfunctioning exhaust system which caused a loud backfire from the muffler. The detained subjects were all released.

Domestic violence: At 7:14 p.m. in the 16100 block of Northeast 14th Street, a suspect unlawfully entered his ex-girlfriend’s unlocked apartment and assaulted her. The suspect then took the victim’s car keys and fled. The victim chased the suspect into the parking lot to recover her keys and the suspect hit her with the vehicle, running over her foot. The suspect, a violent offender and officer safety risk, was not located. The case was forwarded to detectives.
