In the blotters: Naked shopping, bad driving and beverage stealing

  • flickr/stevendepolo

Here's a roundup of some of the funnier police blotter bits from around the county over the past few weeks. Most identifying details are removed.

Regardless, nothing might ever beat the whiskey-bacon-beauty products shoplifter from November.

While taking her DOL driving test a 16-year-old female failed to put the vehicle into drive and backed into a fence.

Arlington: Police were called to a domestic dispute between a boyfriend and girlfriend. She went to the store and did not come home. Turns out she went to the casino for a couple of hours.

Everett: An employee calls 911 after telling a female, who has stolen from her store before, to leave. The female walks to the coolers and takes a cold beverage before leaving without paying. Based on information provided by the employee, officers easily find the female who is still holding the cold beverage. Immediately, the female throws the drink down and states, “I didn't steal anything!” Officers detain the female and the employee positively identifies her as the thief. The female is arrested, given a trespass warning to stay away from the business and is booked into the county jail.

Everett: Night shift officers respond to a business on the report of a male and female prowling the back of a tractor trailer. The area is marked “No Trespassing.” Officers contact the male but the female flees. There is no damage or entry made to the trailer. Early in the morning, officers again respond to the business on the report of a female climbing on top of the 53-foot trailer. Officers contact the female who states she is looking for her lost German shepherd. After further investigation, the female states she thought there was a concert on top of the trailer. There is no damage or entry made to the trailer. Officers arrest and book the female into county jail for trespass.

Mukilteo: The parents of a 9-year-old female reported that the child ran away from them after a temper tantrum, was hiding behind the trees and would not come back. The officer walked over to the juvenile and escorted her back to the parents.

Mukilteo: Taxi driver reported a customer was refusing to pay his cab fare. A group of (athletes) were returning from a bar, ran from the cab when it arrived at the hotel, and left their passed out buddy in the cab. One of their sober teammates staying in the hotel paid their cab fare for them.

Mukilteo: (Caller) reported a naked female in the store. Officers contacted subject. She was not wearing any pants and could not explain why she was trying to shop without any pants on. She was not any danger to herself or others and ultimately was given a (ride) back to her home.

Mukilteo: The officer responded to the above area for a 911 open line. A male could be heard saying, “I can't get high off opiates right now.” The female said “I'm trying to quit.” The officer called the number back. A female answered, refused to talk, and then hung up.

Stanwood: A 59-year-old man reported the theft of a set beaver trap.

Stanwood: A two-car, non-injury parking lot accident occurred due to the at-fault 49-year-old male driver failing to yield the right of way. The driver of the other car stated that she didn't see the other driver run the stop sign because she had been distracted due to eating French fries.

Previously in blotter bits: October, September and August.
