The blotter feature is both a description of a small selection of police incidents and a statistical roundup of calls to the Bothell Police Department that are dispatched to on-duty police officers. The Bothell Police blotter is not intended to be representative of all police calls originating in Bothell.
Malicious mischief: 2:08 a.m., 24100 block of 7th Pl. W. Police were called to a home in Bothell where a 36-year-old man was reportedly driving his vehicle across a neighbor’s front yard, through a fence and shrubbery. The man was reported to be a felon but was in possession of a firearm and suicidal. Upon contact, police saw the vehicle “high centered” in some bushes and tire tracks in the neighbor’s front yard. A six-foot high fence separating the two homes was destroyed, and the backyards were torn up as well. The vehicle had one rear window broken and damage to the windshield. The suspect was not immediately located, but his mother told police he was suicidal, and she took a semi-automatic rifle away from the man after he fired it at a tree and five or six more shots into the air. Police called in a K9 search team to look for the suspect but were unable to locate him. Police returned the next day to find the suspect and placed him under arrest. They also found cocaine residue in the man’s wallet. Upon another search of property, officers found six bullet holes in the ceiling of the man’s bedroom.
Domestic: 5:34 a.m., 12600 block of NE 183rd St. Police were called to a residence when a woman stated that her 74-year-old husband tried to make her stop breathing while she was sleeping. Upon contact, the man told police that he was tired of his wife’s snoring and tried to get her to breathe differently. Both informed officers that the man has a post traumatic brain injury, and the wife told officers she was scared of her husband and requested that her be medically evaluated at the VA.
Theft: 2:03 p.m., 12600 block of NE 180th St. A man called police to report that a package was taken from his front porch containing a rifle, ammunition and an ammunition belt. Officers confirmed with FedEx that the package was delivered to the residence. No suspects have been identified.

The suspect was wearing a black wool jacket, black pants, a black backpack, “aviator style” black sunglasses and had a burgundy-colored scarf covering his mouth.
