Shark Tale: Bellevue Blotter June 5 – June 10

June 5

POWDER: A bank customer was attempting to put $5,000 in $100s into their business account through an ATM when the machine jammed. The customer reported the jam and later an ATM technician came out to take a look. The technician found a strange baggie filled with white powder stuck to the machine. The powder tested negative for narcotics.

STICKY SITUATION: Three suspects stole gum from a store on Factoria Boulevard and were found by officers in their vehicle just a short distance away. The suspect offered to return the gum, and the clerk at the store just wanted the group trespassed from the store. However the thief had a warrant out for his arrest in Renton and was arrested.

June 6

WALK DIRECTLY TO JAIL: An officer contacted a subject for jaywalking across Northeast 8th Street and discovered he had a felony warrant. He was booked into jail.

CHAIN OF FOOLS: A group of suspects were in Downtown Park after closing hours and were approached by police. One of the suspects had a baggie of Xanax around his neck on a chain.

June 7

MALICIOUS HARASSMENT: A man was in a store on 148th Avenue Northeast yelling racially charged words to no one in particular. The same suspect had been accused of harassing someone earlier in the week in the same manner. He was arrested during a welfare check.

June 8

GO-AWAY PRO: A man was witnessed masturbating with both hands in a store aisle on Northeast 8th Street. Security arrived and the suspect ran, and officer caught up to the man and arrested him, finding a Go-Pro camera which was believed to film the obscene act.

REALLY? AGAIN?: A suspect was seen behind a beauty school on Northeast 20th Street masturbating. He walked around the building continuing the act. The witness chose not to press charges against the suspect.

SHARK TALE: A transient had provided a false name to a police officer earlier in the week. The officer was able to follow up and identify the man thanks to a large tattoo of a great white shark on his arm. The man had a felony warrant for burglary out of King County and was arrested.

June 9

FULL MENTAL JACKET: An officer arrested two suspects for outstanding warrants and then searched their vehicle after seeing drug paraphernalia and a bullet inside. Inside the vehicle was a stolen firearm from a motor vehicle prowl in Woodinville along with 27 grams of heroin, shaved keys and other drug equipment.

June 10

SATURDAY, BLOODY SATURDAY: A resident on 110th Avenue Northeast heard glass shatter in their home and upon arrival found a blood-covered broken window. The suspect entered the home through the window and left through the front door, bleeding all the while. He was arrested in the same building and treated at the hospital for his profusely bleeding arm.
