Aug. 6

Keyed car: At 9:53 a.m. in the 15500 block of Juanita-Woodinville Way Northeast, a car was keyed at the Willina Ranch Apartments. The victim suspected someone who works for the complex may have done the damage. The victim has been in a dispute with the manager, who told him to park his car in the garage and not in the open parking spaces.

Aug. 7

Wrong plates: At 12:05 p.m. in the 18500 block of Campus Way Northeast, a woman reported to campus security that she had been receiving parking tickets the last several days. But she noticed that her front and back plates were different. One was registered to her, the other was from a stolen vehicle out of Seattle.

Aug. 8

Car prowl: At 1 p.m. in the 10800 block of Northeast 193rd Street, a subject showed police a video. It was security footage of what appeared to be a man in a gray hooded sweatshirt entering a Ford Explorer parked in the driveway. The car door was unlocked and a wallet was stolen.

Bike locks cut: At 10:20 a.m. in the 24000 block of Bothell-Everett Highway, two mountain bikes were stolen overnight. The two bikes had been locked on the rear of a trailer. An unknown suspect cut the cable lock to steal the bikes.

Aug. 10

Whoops: At 12:49 p.m. in the 8400 block of Northeast 203rd Place, someone forgot to close their garage door. The next morning, they discovered one of their bikes were stolen.

Aug. 12

Dino damage: At 2:14 p.m. in the 100 block of 236th Place Southwest, a dinosaur skeleton stood next to a home for 11 months. But its head was ripped off and stolen. The neck and frame of the dinosaur were bent, but remained. The neighbor said they heard something at about 1:30 a.m. outside. Sounded like some youngsters “up to no good.”
