Sept. 3

Theft: At 10:46 a.m. in the 300 block of 213th Place Southwest, a bike was left in the front yard of a home the night before. When the residents woke up the next day ready to ride it around, it was gone. There was security footage of a red-headed woman picking up the bike and leaving in the morning.

Graffiti: At 12:51 p.m. in the 18400 block of 101st Avenue Northeast, there was a report of graffiti on the sidewalk on the east side of Bothell City Hall. An unknown person wrote the N-word in a red, melting substance. The graffiti was cleaned.

Sept. 5

Bathroom theft: At 8:42 p.m. in the 22600 block of Bothell-Everett Highway, a Rite Aid employee told police a male with a backpack was in the bathroom with store product. The employee also found scissors in the bathroom trash can. There was one man in the stall when police arrived. He was seen holding a large piece of tinfoil in the stall.

Sept. 6

Car prowl: At 5:13 p.m. in the 19100 block of 112th Avenue Northeast, a jeep was parked overnight in the apartment garage. When the building had a power outage, the door was propped open so people could get in and out. The jeep had the front half of the hard top off but the car doors were locked. The vehicle was found the next day with the passenger door and glove box open. The only missing item was a tool kit.

Trespass: At 4:50 p.m. in the 1300 block of 214th Street Southeast, police contacted two homeless people camping in the woods on private property. The adult male and female were arrested for trespassing and booked into Lynnwood City Jail.

Sept. 8

DUI: At 11:35 p.m. on northbound Interstate 405 near milepost 28, an officer in an unmarked patrol car observed a Toyota Corolla drift into the right lane with no turn signals, and then correct themselves. The car would slow down and speed up. The driver was arrested after sobriety tests were given.
