April Fool’s?: At 12:55 a.m., a caller in the 7800 block of Baker Avenue Southeast, Snoqualmie, told police that someone had just called his daughter, telling her to “come outside, someone hit your car really hard.” The parent was suspicious, and looked outside but did not see anyone. Police investigated and found no damage to the daughter’s car.

Scared: At 10:41 a.m., a woman in the 6000 block of Cascade Lane Southeast, Snoqualmie, called to report a burglary in progress.

The police  also received alarm notifications from the home. They responded, and met the fire department, which had received a medical alarm from the home. No one answered the door, so firefighters breached the door. The homeowner, hidden in a bathroom closet, then called 911 again, thinking someone was breaking into her home to burglarize it. Firefighters broke three more doors before locating the home-owner, scared but uninjured, in the closet.
