The Enterprise Elementary School PTA ESCAPE charity auction

Enterprise fundraiser today

The Enterprise Elementary School PTA will host an ESCAPE charity auction at 6 p.m. today, April 26 at the Centre at Norpoint in Federal Way. Funds raised will benefit the Accelerated Reader reading program and repairs to playground equipment.

The event will feature dinner as well as silent, dessert and live auctions. For more information, e-mail enterprisepta@comcast.net or call (253) 945-2621.

Murder suspects

On April 17, Seattle police detectives arrested a 22-year-old man who goes by the name of “13” at his registered address in Federal Way for the alleged April 14 murder of Noel Lopez, 25. Lopez was beaten to death at a Seattle construction site. He may have been homeless at the time.

A man notified detectives April 16 that while at the New Horizons Youth Shelter in Seattle he overheard two men, who went by the names “Smurf” and “13,” bragging about beating a man with metal pipes and two-by-four boards because he was attempting to sleep with a 15-year-old homeless female. The man reported both men wore blood-splattered clothing, according to court documents.

Police identified “Smurf” and an accomplice in the murder, “13,” on April 17. They arrested the latter the same day at a location listed as his home in Federal Way. On April 21, “Smurf,” age 20, was arrested at a Seattle address.

Both men are being held at the King County Jail on $1 million bail. The suspects’ names are being withheld because neither has been charged of the crime of murder in the first degree.

Prescription for trouble

Christopher M. Day, 31, of Federal Way, was sentenced to four months in prison April 24 for the felony offense of acquiring a controlled substance by forgery and subterfuge, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office press release.

Day, a former pharmacy technician, filled and sold approximately 55 false prescriptions for the drug oxycodone between November 2006 and April 2007. Day began engaging in the illegal activity while he was employed by Bartell Drugs.

He sold 60-pill prescriptions for 20 milligram, 40 milligram and 80 milligram strength oxycodone, according to the release. The wholesale value of the oxycodone prescriptions sold were $8,133.

Day was also ordered to perform 40 hours of community service and pay $8,133 to Bartell Drugs as restitution for the loss incurred, according to the press release.
