Notable Calls/Incidents 

Welfare check
Officers were asked to perform a welfare check on an individual who had not been seen for over a week and whose mailbox was overflowing. When officers arrived, they were able to see the subject through a window. They were not able to get a response from the subject, who was not moving. With fire department assistance, officers were able to gain entry and determine the subject was deceased. Many disturbing illegal images depicting children and 30 firearms were in the residence. 

Burglary at local store

Burglary at local market

Officers responded to a burglary at a local market. The suspect smashed a window, stole several items, including the cash register, and fled. A related vehicle was located by an officer and seized while the subject ran away. Officers were unable to deploy a K9 track due to new law restrictions. 

After a search warrant was issued, the cash register, lottery tickets, illegal narcotics, a handgun, and other stolen items were found. The cash register and lottery tickets were returned to the very happy owner.

Suspect rebooked on Seattle theft
A suspect in our recent Thanksgiving Day burglary was in possession of the same or similar firearm at a theft in Seattle. This was after he was booked and released on our arrest with Kenmore. The suspect was taken into custody and booked. He is facing several charges including our LFP crimes. 

Domestic violence
Officers responded to a dangerous domestic violence assault where serious injuries were sustained to a mother and her daughter by the boyfriend. The suspect fled prior to police arrival and multiple attempts to locate him were unsuccessful. It was determined that the victims were at great risk staying in the home. Through the budgeted Safe Harbors program, Detectives were able to secure two nights at a local hotel for the family while they work with our DV advocate for further assistance. One of our detectives also purchased diapers for the family.

Don't be telling me officers were unable to deploy a canine due to law changes. They chose not to deploy a dog because of their interpretation of the law. The canine could have tracked and found the suspect - biting/hurting/harming the suspect is when the new law might have become problematic. Maybe its time to train labradors and other scent hounds to assist the police rather than one trained to attack.

I think Anonymous is accurate in their statement saying that the interpretation of the new law may not be true to the intent of the new law. This needs looking into.

You have no clue about that case. In fact, probable cause could not be established under the new laws. Therefore, without P.C., K9 rightfully (under the new laws) could not track. The business owner, who gave P.C., did so hours after the crime. Educate yourself on the new laws before posting incorrect information.
