Police blotter.

Feb. 4

DUI: At 8:10 p.m. while conducting a routine patrol, an officer saw a vehicle leaving the “closed after dusk” park area. After speeding away, the officer ran the owner’s license plate to find no license and an expired ID. The officer conducted a traffic stop and saw several open beer containers on the floorboard and inside the driver door. The driver smelled of alcohol and had delayed responses. He blew over three times the legal limit for alcohol.

Yelling in the bathroom: At 4:38 p.m. a report came in from Si View Park about a man yelling in the restroom. Officers arrived and contacted the male who advised he was having “bathroom issues” and was okay. He declined medical attention.

Offer up ad: At 8:44 p.m. a female met with a man at 200 block of West Bend Way, who was interested in purchasing her vehicle that was advertised on Offer Up. She had spoken to the male for several minutes before she had allowed him to do a vin check prior to purchasing. The male never returned with her vehicle.

Lost ball python: At 11:06 p.m. dispatch received a call from a hysterical subject in the 34000 block of Southeast Salal Street stating that their python snake had gotten out of its cage, and they didn’t know where it was. Officers attempted to locate the snake with no luck.

Feb. 8

DUI: At 1:29 a.m. an officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle that was halted at a green light on Meadowbrook Way Southeast and Railroad Avenue Southeast. The driver exited the vehicle stating she was lost while she slurred her words. When asked to do a field sobriety test she agreed but stopped after the first test because “she didn’t think she could perform them.”

Suspicious circumstance: At 5:20 p.m. officers received a call at the North Bend Ace Hardware concerning two subjects inside a vehicle smoking something and passing it back and forth. Officers arrived and determined what was being passed back and forth was a cigarette.
