Friday, Dec. 25

Green stuff: At 11 p.m., an officer driving west on East North Bend Way saw a blue Chevy Camaro driving without headlights. Pulling the car over, the officer smelled the strong odor of unburned marijuana from the vehicle. He asked the man at the wheel if he had any marijuana. The driver said no. He asked again, and the female passenger pulled out a plastic bag with green vegetable matter. The officer placed both the driver and passenger in custody. Searching the car, the officer found a clear bag in the chest pocket of the man's jacket. The man said there was more marijuana in the woman's purse. In the purse, he found an unlabeled pill bottle with what appeared to be marijuana inside, plus a glass smoking device. Both the man and woman said they had smoked 10 to 20 minutes ago. They were told to call a friend to take them home, and were released at the scene.

Shoplifted soda: At 9:30 p.m., two women and a man walked to a North Bend QFC display rack and grabbed four 24-pack cases of Coca-Cola worth $6.49 each. Witnesses saw them get into a gold Buick and drive east. The car was registered to someone born in 1950 and did not match up with the description of the suspects, who were in their 20s.

Sunday, Dec. 13

Coach grab: At 6:20 p.m., the sales manager at the Coach Outlet in North Bend noticed two young men wearing baggy clothes enter the store. The suspects stood at a display for a few moments.

A witness saw them jump into a white Nissan Altima. The three bags were priced at $348 each.

Snoqualmie Police Dept.

Wednesday, Dec. 23

Bad license: At 11:10 p.m., an officer noticed a blue 2003 Nissan 350 coupe traveling south on Railroad Avenue. The car had expired license tabs. The officer stopped the vehicle on Bendigo Boulevard at Southeast Park Street. The driver, a 22-year-old man, said he did not have a license because it was suspended for unpaid tickets. A dispatcher advised that he had a $2,000 misdemeanor warrant for a third-degree suspended license charge out of King County. The officer arrested the man and took him to the Issaquah City Jail.

Tuesday, Dec. 22

Another bad license: At 8:40 p.m., an officer driving east on Railroad Avenue noticed a 1993 Ford Taurus traveling a few cars ahead. The officer was aware that the driver, a 20-year-old man, had recently been arrested for driving with a suspended license and minor consumption of alcohol. The officer stopped the vehicle at an intersection and asked the driver why he was driving after being arrested. The driver responded that he had just gotten out of the Issaquah Jail and needed a ride home. He knew he was not supposed to drive, but thought the one time would be fine. The man was arrested once again and taken back to the Issaquah Jail to be booked.

Saturday, Dec. 19

Still another bad license: At 4 p.m., an officer noticed a white 1997 Honda Civic traveling north in the 8300 block of Falls Avenue. The officer registered the car and found that the 22-year-old man driving the car had a suspended driver's license for unpaid tickets. The officer stopped the vehicle and informed the man that his license was suspended. The driver said he was unaware of that fact. The officer forwarded a charge to the prosecutor for review. The driver was released at the scene and advised he would receive a court date.
