Deadly prank, Casino assault: Weekly police and fire reports

Local police and fire agencies in the Snoqualmie Valley responded to the following:

King County Sheriff's Office

Saturday, Jan. 2

Deadly prank: At 4 p.m., a victim parked his truck at the Rattlesnake Lake parking area. He returned to his truck to find that someone had siphoned gasoline out of his tank. He was able to drive away, but when he attempted to apply his brakes, the pedal went to the floor — he had no brake power. As he was approaching a steep hill, the man decided to put his truck into the hillside on the west side of the roadway. As he did so, the truck flipped onto the passenger side and blocked the southbound lane. A deputy discovered that all four brake lines had been cut in half. There was no evidence, and no sign of brake fluid at the Rattlesnake Lake parking lot. The man escaped injury.

Shoplifter: At 1:53 p.m., the manager of the North Bend Liquor Store was behind the security window when she saw a shopper select two bottles of tequila and concealed them under his jacket. She confronted him and recognized him as a shoplifter in the store a few weeks ago. He apologized, gave her the bottles and left. She followed him and called 911. She lost him as he walked through the parking lot. The Issaquah Liquor Store reported that the man was also a suspect in Redmond as well as Issaquah. Officers lifted four latent fingerprints off the bottles.

Thursday, Dec. 31

Assault: At 3:40 p.m., an officer responded to Snoqualmie Casino to investigate an assault. Casino security and the victim were trying to persuade a woman to get into her car and leave the premesis when she punched her victim on the lower left arm, causing pain but no injury. The assailant was very intoxicated and was placed under arrest for assault. She ate the trespass notice the casino gave her and was spitting on the walls and doors of the waiting room. The officer had to place a spit bag over her head.

Bad graffitti: At 1:11 p.m., an unknown person used fluorescent orange spraypaint to graffiti pillars supporting the I-90 eastbound overpass in North Bend. The officer located a cap at the scene from the spray can and collected evidence for processing.
