The following blotter entries were posted on the Tukwila Police Department’s Facebook:

Tuesday, April 10

Stolen Vehicle

15000 block 42nd Ave: A resident reported that when he was on vacation, his vehicle was stolen. One of our regulars from the nearby problem apartment complex was involved. Renton Police Department had contacted several people on April 7 in the vehicle including our gold level frequent flyer due to suspicious activity. At the time, it wasn’t reported as stolen. They booked one of those in the car on a warrant and impounded the vehicle after unsuccessful attempts to contact the owner.

Vehicle Prowl

17500 block Southcenter Parkway: A vehicle prowler broke a window and stole a laptop case from the vehicle. No laptop was inside the bag so the joke’s on them.

Vehicle Prowl/Malicious Mischief

4700 block Southcenter Blvd: Three females were observed peering into vehicle windows in an apartment complex. One of the three is a resident of the complex who made the epically poor decision to try and prowl vehicles where she lives. Goes back to the age-old adage — “Do not doo-doo where you eat.” One member of the group slashed a tire on a vehicle then all three went back to the suspect’s residence. One of the females was arrested for malicious mischief for slashing the tires. Again, if it is not yours, do not touch it.

Parking Complaint

15300 block 65th Ave: Many parking tickets were written throughout the day in the perpetual problematic area where people continue to blatantly disregard “No Parking” signs.

Attempted Burglary

3500 block 146th St: Two males and a female were reported trying to break into a residence using a screw driver. Officers located all three and detained them in the laundry room of the complex. One of them had an outstanding warrant for theft and unlawful possession of a firearm. He claimed to have swallowed meth and was transported to the hospital by ambulance.

Shoplift

5300 block Southcenter Blvd: A group of three males stole $1,500 worth of battery-operated self-gratification devices and fled in a tan hatchback vehicle.

Unwanted Persons

15000 block Tukwila International Blvd.: Yet again, we found ourselves responding to a group of unruly individuals hanging outside a business. They were refusing to leave, smoking the devil’s lettuce and just generally being obnoxious to the point that businesses had to call 911. Officers contacted the group and trespassed several of them from several businesses in the area.

Unwanted Persons

15200 block Tukwila International Blvd.: Officers contacted some of the same group as above awhile later at Mickey D’s aka the House of Ron. They were McTrespassed from the location.

Wednesday, April 11

Suspicious Activity

42nd Ave. S. at Interurban Ave S.: A male with no shirt was observed standing on the banks of the Green River near a bridge yelling and screaming while pointing. At some point, he fell in the river but was able to get himself out thankfully, and not swept away. He was transported to the hospital for evaluation.

Recovered Stolen Vehicle

14200 block 42nd Ave: A 1992 Honda Accord was abandoned in a parking lot. It had been stolen in Seattle on April 8. Officers recovered it and notified the owner.

Assault

14000 block Interurban Ave S.: A manager of a business was assaulted by an intoxicated female. He did not want to pursue charges at the time of the report.

Warrant Arrest

14200 block Interurban Ave S.: A male was taken into custody for an outstanding felony warrant issued by the U.S. Marshals Office.

Poorly Attempted Shoplift

17100 block Southcenter Parkway: While officers were dealing with a dispute next door to this business, a male with little to no situational awareness thought it would be a good time to try his hand at shoplifting having apparently missed the multiple clearly marked patrol vehicles out front. He was contacted by officers before he could go through with the act and trespassed from the location.

Shoplift

Southcenter District: A male and female shoplifted approximately $500 in merchandise and fled in a black 2008 Dodge Charger registered to a male in Kent whose matches the description of the suspect. Nice try. You may return the merchandise to the store.

Unwanted Persons

15000 block Tukwila International Blvd.: Made it to 6 p.m. before getting multiple calls about a group of more than 10 individuals hanging out, drinking and disturbing customers in the usual spot. Officers contacted them and told them to move along.

Assault

Southcenter District: Three females in their late teens to early 20s threw a tantrum and began to throw hangers and clothing on the floor and at employees. They slapped the manager and then attempted to spray her with an unknown substance believed to possibly be pepper spray. The suspects fled on foot. Again, another reminder to those seeking to act the fool in public. There are cameras everywhere recording your criminal acts and there are consequences for your actions.

Shoplift

17100 block Southcenter Parkway: Criminal fail of the day — two females loaded up two very large bags with merchandise and ran out the front door. They hopped into a waiting vehicle out front and took off. Officers stopped the vehicle. The suspects were positively identified by loss prevention and arrested.

Unwanted Person

15200 block Tukwila International Blvd.: A female engaged in a party of one in the bathroom for an extended period of time. When employees contacted her and asked her to leave multiple times, she refused to do so and threw a McFit instead. Officers contacted her and she left.
