You can’t make this stuff up: At 11:57 a.m. in the 1600 block of 140th Avenue Northeast, as officers were investigating a stolen car they recovered, someone walked past officers, got into the recovered stolen car and took a phone charger. An officer noticed that a phone in the suspect’s possession was flashing “Where’s my I-Phone.” Police were able to locate the phone’s true owner, who was the victim of a car prowl.

Wake up: At 6:29 a.m. in the 15900 block of Northeast 1st Street, someone called 911 because a car was blocking his driveway. The car had two people in it who were sleeping.
