Rough night or ruffies; home-made business card declined

Snoqualmie Valley police responded to the following calls last week:

Saturday, July 26

No memory, no theft: At 1:21 p.m., a woman in the 8100 block of Falls Avenue Southeast Snoqualmie, contacted police about a theft. She thought she'd been drugged, because she woke up at a friend's house with no memory of the previous night. Someone told her she'd been at Smokey Joe's, and they'd found her stumbling in the street. She didn't remember being at the bar, said someone had taken the jewelry she'd been wearing and her purse. Police found her belongings at the bar and returned them to her.

Bike violation: At 9:07 p.m., police conducted a traffic stop at Southeast River Street and Falls Avenue Southeast, Snoqualmie, for a bike violation on a man known to have a warrant for his arrest. They took him into custody and booked him into the Issaquah Jail without incident.

Hallucinating: At 1:11 a.m., a man contacted police in the 8200 block of Railroad Avenue, Snoqualmie, asking for a non-emergency ride to the hospital. He appeared confused and disoriented, and claimed to be hallucinating after smoking marijuana. Police took him to the hospital.

Noises: At 12:08 a.m., a caller in the 7600 block of Dogwood Lane Southeast, Snoqualmie, told police someone was walking through the park making strange noises. There were no lights on in the park. Police investigated and found a man from the neighborhood walking his dog in the park.

Suspicious: At 10:56 a.m., a caller in the 200 block of Bendigo Boulevard North, North Bend, called police about a man acting strangely. She said he may have followed her into the bank in this block, and he tried to give her his business card. She didn't see him do any business at the bank, and refused the card, but he gave it to her anyway. It was a homemade business card, with a photocopy of his driver's license. Police used the information to check the man's record and learned from the Auburn Police Department that they had contacted him July 8 when the man, a registered sex offender, was found passing out cards seeking sex and companionship, to various women. The caller could not give police a detailed description of the man, but said he was white, about 6'2" and had brown hair. Police could not locate the man in North Bend, but planned to issue a trespass notice to him by mail.

Shady spot: At 9:51 a.m., police were called to the 200 block of Bendigo Boulevard South, North Bend, where a caller reported seeing a middle-aged man slumped over the wheel of a car. Police responded with aid and contacted the man, who said he'd been sleeping in the car, where there was shade.

Bad day: At 8:37 p.m., police received reports of a man on foot on Bendigo Boulevard at the I-90 roundabout, North Bend. He was seen walking toward the city, yelling at passing cars. He was dressed in jeans, a green shirt, black shoes and a blue headband, and was carrying a skateboard. Police contacted him and found out that he had been having trouble getting a ride home, because his phone was not working. He'd just contacted his father, who would be picking him up.

Thursday, July 31

Shots: At 12:39 a.m., a caller on Ogle Avenue Northeast, North Bend, called police about hearing a shot fired, possibly at Sixth Street Northeast and Merritt Avenue Northeast. There were no sounds of a disturbance after the shot. Police walked the neighborhood, and heard four shots from a small-caliber gun, but found nothing in the area.

Stoned sitters: At 2:57 a.m., police noticed two youths sitting on the west side of Snoqualmie City Hall and contacted them. They smelled strongly of marijuana. The officer brought the two to their home and handed them over to an adult who had been informed of the situation.
