Missing purse: Around 8 p.m., a woman’s Coach purse went missing while she was at IGA Village Foods.

Stolen vehicle recovery: At 3:30 p.m., on Harding Place, officers pulled over a vehicle that had been reported stolen from Seattle. Both the driver and passenger had outstanding arrest warrant, and officers found GPS navigation devices, a pistol holder and fully loaded .45 pistol magazine with seven bullets inside the vehicle. The men claimed they didn’t have guns and knew nothing about the firearm paraphernalia. Both were booked into jail.

DUI: At 1:07 p.m., an officer pulled over a swerving driver with a blank look on his face on Snoqualmie Parkway Southeast at Fairway Avenue Southeast. With fast, slurred speech, the man said he likes driving his green Mazda RX-7 that way because it “is like a go-cart,” and that he was in a hurry to get to the pharmacy to have his Percocet prescription filled. During field sobriety tests, he complained that he had bad eyes from being a welder, as well as a bursted pus pocket in his throat. After he pulled up his pant leg to show off his injured legs, he lost his balance and stumbled backwards. On the way to the police station following his arrest, the man told the officer he had been drinking all night because his girlfriend left him, and stole his medication and guns. He was released to his neighbor.
