Bothell

July 9

Drugs in the park: At 10:38 a.m. in the 1100 block of 208th Street Southeast, an adult male was smoking purported heroin in Centennial Park lot. They were arrested and later released.

Hot dog: At 1:27 p.m. in the 21000 block of Bothell-Everett Highway, there was a dog inside a hot car at a Fred Meyer. An officer arrived and heard the dog barking. They approached the car and found an older black lab with a gray muzzle inside a Ford Explorer, and a note taped on the driver-side window that read “don’t leave your dog in the car in hot weather. Next time I will call 911.” The outside temperature was 75 degrees but inside the car, the officer measured 98 degrees using a laser thermometer. A woman with a cane and man returned to their car. The dog was a therapy pet named Coco. The officer asked the woman if she had water for the dog. She responded that she did but that it wasn’t accessible to the dog. The officer told the woman she would be fined for having no water for Coco and for leaving her alone in the car in warm weather. That’s when the woman’s husband turned to her and said, “I told you.”

Suspicious card: At 2:03 p.m. in the 18400 block of 101st Avenue Northeast, the city finance office received a suspicious card with $3 attached. It was addressed to the finance director, but was not expected. It had a sticker depicting slave trade and a “Walter J Freeman Foundation” sticker on the front. It also had a “George III” sticker on the back. They were unable to determine who it was from or where the money should be applied.

July 11

Locker theft: At 8:07 p.m. in the 11800 block of Northeast 195th Street, a victim was lifting weights at the Northshore YMCA. When they returned to their locker an hour and a half later, they found that someone had stolen their wallet.

July 12

Missing bike: At 2:37 p.m. in the 18300 block of Bothell Way Northeast, someone placed their bike in a designated bike rack at the Six Oaks apartment garage. It was seen on June 30, but when the victim returned from a trip to Canada, they discovered the bike was gone.

July 15

Neighbor dispute: At 3:13 p.m. in the 15000 block of Waynita Way Northeast, a person returned home after a 16-hour double shift and tried to park their car in their designated open parking spot. But their neighbor’s parking prevented this from happening. So, the subject parked the car in a visitor’s parking spot, which happens to be across that same neighbor’s unit. When leaving for work, the subject found a note super glued to the driver’s side windshield. They attempted to remove it but were unable to. There were also some scratches on their car that weren’t there before. They attempted to talk to the neighbor but he would not say a single word and just stood there staring. The staring has happened a number of times.

Hole appears: At 5:58 p.m. in the 9400 block of Northeast 191st Street, someone heard a very loud noise and thought someone was slamming into their front window. They saw no one outside. The next morning they discovered a spot about the size of a quarter in the outside portion of the glass in the front window. It may have been a pellet gun or a rock, but the resident noted that the area between the window and the street is screened by a huge tree and rhododendrons.
