Missing car? A deputy responded to a report of a missing car at the Snoqualmie Casino. At noon, a woman said she left her vehicle in the parking garage. She and her husband came in separate cars but went home in his car, leaving hers behind. She returned to the casino on Dec. 11 to pick up her car, but it was missing. The officer asked her to show him the exact spot the vehicle was parked. The woman said she was unsure whether the vehicle was parked on the second, third or fourth floor, admitting that her husband had been driving, making her unsure of the exact location. Casino security personnel were asked to provide surveillance footage; casino staff electronically log the plate of every vehicle that enters and exits the casino. Their data showed that the woman's vehicle had not been in the garage since Oct. 20, exiting at midnight. The officer drove through the garage to confirm the vehicle was not there.

Another intoxicated driver: At 11:45 p.m., an officer was driving west on Redmond Way when a car approached eastbound with its high beams on, refusing to dim them. The officer made a u-turn and activated emergency lights. He followed the blue Chevrolet Geo for about 1.5 miles before it stopped. The officer asked for the woman's license after she had given him her bank card. The officer asked if she had been drinking, but she said she had not been. However, the driver had two bottles of wine on her front seat. She was asked to perform voluntary sobriety test and agreed. She was unsteady on her feet and performed the tests several times, but was unable to complete them. She refused a breath test and was put under arrest. At the station, after consulting with an attorney, she agreed to complete the breath test and was released without charge.
