Juvenile problem: At 2:02 p.m., police were called to 432nd Avenue SE in North Bend where a woman was locked out of her house by her son after an argument. Police arrived and discovered the argument started because the son didn’t want to move firewood to the side of the house.

Tuesday, Nov. 21

Hazardous road: At 7:12 p.m., an unoccupied vehicle in a drive-through for a business on the 700 block of SW Mount Si Boulevard, North Bend, was reported. The caller said it caused a traffic jam as other drivers had to back out. Officers found that the vehicle belonged to the manager of the business and was blocking the drive-through because of minimal staffing at the time.
