Police and fire agencies in the Snoqualmie Valley responded to the following calls:

Snoqualmie-North Bend Police Department

Friday, Nov. 10

Mischief: At 7:20 p.m., a caller on SE Braeburn Street, Snoqualmie, reported that someone had vandalized his front yard some time in the past four days. Police met with the caller and a neighbor, who mentioned that there had been a wind storm two nights earlier that had blown garbage around the yard.

Dog in car: At 6:13 p.m., a caller complained that a large dog had been left inside a black pickup truck in the parking lot of a store in the 400 block of SW Mount Si Boulevard. Police officers checked on the dog, which seemed fine, and told the caller they couldn’t really do anything for a dog that spends a lot of time in a car. They told the caller to contact animal control, unless the dog seemed to be in danger.

Road rage: At 4:30 p.m., a caller contacted police to report that he was being followed by another vehicle on North Bend Way after a road-rage incident on Interstate 90. The caller said the vehicle was tailgating for a while, then passed him and was periodically braking, then got behind him again. The caller met police at the outlet mall and the other vehicle followed, running a red light to stay behind the caller. Police spoke to both drivers and determined that bad tempers had led to bad driving from both of them.

Tuesday, Nov. 14

Suspicious: Police investigated a report of suspicious behavior at a business in the 400 block of E. North Bend Way. Two men had reportedly been standing outside the business, making people uncomfortable. A caller thought the two were on drugs and got a partial license plate number from the red SUV the two left in. Police identified the vehicle, but could not locate it.

Thursday, Nov. 16

Ejected: At 12:56 p.m., police were called to a hotel in the 6500 block of Railroad Avenue, to remove a guest who was arguing with staff and refusing to leave. Police removed the woman from the hotel and walked her to her car, but since she was under the influence of narcotics, they did not give her the keys. The woman said she’d wait in her car until her daughter came to get her. The police held her keys for her to pick up at the police department. At 3:08 police were again called to the hotel, to remove the woman from the nearby gift shop. She said she didn’t realize the gift shop was on the same property and had just gone there to charge her phone. She returned to her vehicle.
