Snoqualmie Police Dept.

Monday, Sept. 10

Suspended license: At 7:18 p.m., an officer pulled into a parking lot in the 9000 block of Railroad Avenue Southeast, and saw a woman known to have a suspended license in the driver’s seat of a parked vehicle.

No light, no license: At 6:36 a.m., an officer patrolling Railroad Avenue Southeast stopped a vehicle at Southeast Northern Street, for not having a working license plate light.

Friday, Sept. 7

Truck towed: At 4:35 a.m., police received a report of a suspicious vehicle in the 39100 block of Southeast Epsilon Street. The truck was parked facing the wrong direction, and sticking out about two feet into the roadway. The caller said two men had left the vehicle and thought the behavior was suspicious. Since the truck was in a high-traffic area near the high school and directly in front of a daycare, the officer had the vehicle towed.

DUI Assist: At 12:48 a.m., police took over from a Sheriff’s deputy who’d stopped a vehicle on Snoqualmie Parkway Southeast at Southeast Swenson Drive. The vehicle had been driven erratically, and the driver said she’d had a few drinks with dinner and was lost, trying to find a friend’s house in Snoqualmie.
