Shoreline Police blotter 1-7 to 1-19-2010

During a 12 day period in January, here are some of the things our Shoreline police spent their time on:

  • Several people driving drunk or stoned and/or with drugs in the car.
  • Working with the Shoreline Customer Response Team, police investigated eight abandoned vehicles, most of which were stolen in Seattle and left on Shoreline streets.
  • Three people died at home and the police were called.
  • 17 cases of threats, stalking, violation of restraining orders, expelled students showing up on campus, juvenile runaways, family fights, and several suicidal residents.
  • One person was so unwise as to spit at a deputy when he was being questioned.
  • A teenaged girl woke up half-naked at a party and reported rape.

Businesses in Shoreline came in for more than their share of crime:

  • Goodwill - a female shoplifter was stashing items in her purse. She seems to be known by name to the store personnel.
  • Rite Aid at Ballinger Village - a vehicle in the parking area was broken into and items were stolen.
  • 24-Hour Fitness at Ballinger Village - a patron had items stolen from an unlocked locker.
  • Walgreens at 17524 Aurora - three juveniles shoplifted bottles of cologne.
  • Fortune Cafe at 14725 Aurora - windows broken with a rock.
  • Everest Chicken at 14561 Bothell Way - window smashed with a rock, but no entry to the premises.
  • 24-Hour Fitness at Ballinger Village - a few days after the first incident - this time someone picked the lock and stole items from a locked locker.
  • Costco - larceny.
  • Public Storage at 200065 15th Ave NE - locks were cut off three units - unknown at that time what was stolen.
  • Public business at 18300 Aurora - shoplifting.
  • SeaShore Mini Mart - broke glass door with rock. Stole a lighter.
  • North City Elementary - cell phone stolen from unlocked car.
  • Shoreline Health at 2818 NE 145th - stolen license plates.
However, at least three of these, including the SeaShore break-in, were solved. See Sgt. Larson's story.
