Aggressive caller: At 2:19 p.m. in the 18400 block of 101st Avenue Northeast, a person received a phone call on their office phone. The person on the other line was aggressive and said the subject had hit their car and there was green paint all over it. The subject’s car was indeed green but had not hit another car. The caller said the subject left a note with a phone number on their windshield but did not specify when and where this happened. The subject said they were going to hang up the phone. That’s when the caller said they were going to kill him. The subject hung the phone up and called back. The operator message said the phone had been disconnected.
Locker stealing: At 7:15 p.m. in the 18000 block of 120th Avenue Northeast, someone stole a subject’s wallet from an unsecure locker at the 24 Hour Fitness location.

Looking out for a coworker: At 7:32 a.m. in the 9700 block of Ormbrek Street, officers were dispatched to a vehicle prowl at the Bothell Pet Clinic. The reporting person witnessed a white female suspect prowling his co-worker’s Chevrolet. A second witness reported the same. They also followed the suspect and saw them inside another car at the Pop Keeney field parking lot.
Identity theft: At 12:28 a.m. in the 1600 block of 228th Street Southeast, someone gave out their personal information over the phone to someone claiming to be from the Social Security Office. They told the victim he was being investigated for a crime in Dallas. When the victim asked about the crime, the caller said they had found “blood stains and a s*** ton of cocaine” in a car they had rented two years ago when he visited there. In order to avoid trouble, the caller warned he had to disclose his personal information, including his Social Security number. He obliged.
Tootsie’s rescue: At 1:12 p.m. in the 10000 block of Northeast 183rd street, officers were dispatched to a call of a dog in a hot car. When they arrived, a woman said she had been there for about 20 minutes but did not know how long the dog had been inside the car. She began to cry and begged the officer to help the dog. Others outside watching from the sidewalk yelled “break the window.” The female subject had already checked inside the businesses and could not find the dog and car owner. Police observed a black dog, panting heavily with the tip of his tongue flicking out of his mouth rapidly. Beads of saliva from the dog’s tongue had collected in the lid of a travel cup that was filled with water the dog could not access. The car’s windows were cracked about two inches but there was no water for the dog. The officer measured the internal temperature of the car and it was 102 degrees and minutes later at 104 degrees. Officers were able to lift the car handle from inside the car. The dog’s owner appeared as the car alarm sounded. He told the officers he didn’t believe the temperature was 104 degrees inside his car. The dog was kept inside the air-conditioned police car to cool off as officers told the owner he would receive an infraction in the mail.
