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.

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.

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.

SATURDAY, BLOODY SATURDAY: A resident on 110th Avenue Northeast heard glass shatter in their home and upon arrival found a blood-covered broken window.
