Police Log

Skate and run

Sheriff’s deputies arrested a pair of 16-year-old males, one on obstruction of justice charges, the other for obstruction and attempting to elude police, early Friday morning after the pair was caught skateboarding behind Sportsman’s Warehouse and then fled from the pursuing deputies by zigzaging their way by car through the Costco parking lot. Both teens jumped out of the car and one attempted to hide in some nearby bushes. The suspect’s vehicle, a 1988 Chevy compact car, was impounded and the two teens were booked into juvenile detention.

Barn break-in

Someone broke into the Clear Creek Interpretive Center sometime during the weekend of June 4 and stole a 13-inch television and $8 in cash. There were no suspects.

Dumping the loot

The store clerk at Tracyton Market called 911 on June 1 after discovering a deposit bag containing cash had been stolen by two men who walked to the back of the store.

The first man walked into the store and asked to use the restroom. A few minutes later another male walked in and asked to use the restroom. She told him it was occupied, but he went to the back of the store anyway.

The clerk became suspicious, walked to the back and saw movement in the back office and yelled for the men to come out. One exited the office and the other exited the restroom. The clerk followed them out of the store then went into the office and discovered that a deposit bag containing cash was missing. A Sheriff’s K-9 found the bag — still filled with cash — that had been discarded by the thieves. There are no known suspects.

Only one beer

A stumbling and mumbling 21-year-old Silverdale man was pulled over for speeding on Ridgetop Boulevard at 2:10 a.m. on May 26, and when asked, told the deputy he only had one beer.

He could not provide a driver’s license, registration or proof of insurance. He failed the field sobriety tests and refused to provide a breath sample. He was arrested and booked into jail for DUI and third-degree driving with a suspended license with bail set at $5,000.
