July 15

Caught red handed: At 9:37 p.m. in the 400 block of Bellevue Way Northeast, officers responded to a report of a domestic dispute.

July 17

Burglarized storage units: At 9:45 a.m. in the 12800 block of Northup Way, four storage units at the location were burglarized between July 16-17. The investigation found that the suspect may have gained access through a southwest corner. There was disturbed barbed wire.

Concerned mother: At 2:31 p.m. in the 14600 block of 34th Street, a woman reported that her son had been screaming and breaking things at the apartment. The suspect had only destroyed his own property and therefore not commited a crime. But he was arrested on a warrant.

Watchful daughter: At 8:35 a.m. in the 12000 block of Northeast, a subject was inside a gas station paying for gas when the subject’s daughter, who was in the car outside, ran in.
