King County Sheriff's Weekly Report

Thursday, Oct. 22

Purse snatcher: At 7:30 a.m., a white male walked into the Coach store in North Bend and asked questions about purses. He walked around the store for about 20 minutes, then went outside for a few minutes. While on his phone, he came back to the store and wandered for a bit. Minutes later he squatted down by the front door. A witness said he look like he was going to steal something. The witness yelled, "Hey!" Looking up, the man grabbed three black purses off the bottom shelf next to the exit and ran out the front door into a waiting black four-door car. Stolen merchandise was valued at $1,392.

Odd driving: At 9:15 a.m., the park chairman and co-chairman for security at the Wilderness Rim Homeowner's Association heard a ruckus at the park across the street from his house. He saw a car leave the lot and noticed that someone had been spinning donuts. He attempted to talk to a driver who was still in the lot, but the man acted like he was mute, and turned his radio up. Another vehicle arrived at the lot, and as the reporting party, he walked toward it, the man in the first vehicle said something. Walking back, the man started to drive away, saying "Don't worry, I'll come back later. I'll follow you to your house." The chairman took a picture of the suspect and vehicle. The area was checked, but the suspicious man was not found.

Warrants: At 9a.m., an officer doing a routine check of Depot Park in North Bend and saw three men sleeping there. One man told him that he had a warrant and was going to turn himself in the next day. The man had no identification, so the officer took his name and ran it by the King County Sheriff's Office dispatcher. The man had three warrants from Kirkland, Bellevue and Issaquah. He was booked in the Issaquah jail.

Found bike: At 10:27 a.m., a citizen brought a bicycle to the North Bend substation and wished to claim the bike, as he noticed it was in a ditch for two weeks. He was told to complete a found property report and was given instructions on claiming the bicycle. The bicycle serial number was checked and was confirmed to not be reported as stolen.
