HAHAH my favorites:
"Bothell Wy. Citizen reported that 3 employees smelled like pot. Officer said there was no odor of marijuana but the 3 smelled like garbage."
"Suspicious vehicle. Was grocery delivery."
"Report of pit bull and boxer running loose. The boxer was returned home – was sitting in the middle of the street like a traffic cone."

Not so funny- outgoing mail stolen, checks bounced. People SHOULD NOT send mail from unsecured mailboxes. See tips on preventing mail identity theft: http://www.shorelineareanews.com/2010/06/secure-your-mailbox-to-prevent-mail.html
