Extortion: At 3:24 a.m. April 17 in the 34000 block of 2nd Lane, a victim reported that he was attempting to meet a companion online via the Kik dating app. The victim sent a Kik user two nude photos of himself. The Kik user threatened to post the nude photos on social media if the victim did not make porn site purchases.

Bomb hoax: At 7:15 a.m. April 16, a student at Todd Beamer High School reported to school administration and police that a bomb warning was received from a voice message. The message was a computer-generated voice that gave a bomb warning near Seattle in the next hour. The voice message was left on the phone the night before. Police were able to determine that this may be part of a hoax that has happened in other locations.

Student attacker: At 12:43 p.m. April 16 on Southwest 325th Place, police responded to a male student at Silver Lake Elementary School who was attacking other students and staff. Police had to physically restrain the child. He had been yelling, screaming and trying to get loose. He is a special needs student and was saying that he wanted to die. His father arrived to try and speak to the child, but the student rejected him as well.

Stolen car returned: At 4:08 p.m. on April 16 in the 3700 block of Southwest 335th Court, a female reported to police that her stolen vehicle had been recovered. When she began to clean it, she started to feel very ill. She contacted her insurance company, who sent out a team to investigate. The insurance team found crystal meth inside the car. The crystal meth was collected and submitted to police evidence for destruction. The drugs were not weighed or investigated any further due to possible fentanyl involved.

Smoking at school: At 5 p.m. April 9 in the 600 block of South 314th Street, police were dispatched to smoke coming from behind a playground shed at Mirror Lake Elementary School. Upon arrival, police found two brothers, ages 5 and 10. The two boys stated that they found a lighter nearby and had lighted a few pieces of paper on fire. The school principal and parent guardian were contacted.

Retrieved stolen property: At 3:16 p.m. April 17 in the 2300 block of South 278th Street, police took several subjects into custody for trafficking stolen property. The owner of the stolen trailer found it for sale on Offer Up. The owner then posed as a potential buyer of the trailer and upon arrival confirmed it was his. A second stolen vehicle was located on the scene and later found to have been used in a vehicle prowl and theft of a Coast Guard sailor’s equipment.

Scam: At 10:37 a.m. April 16 in the 34000 block of 35th Avenue Southwest, a male reported that his elderly father had been the victim of a scam that had been ongoing for about two months. The scam involved an unknown person depositing money into his father’s account or sending him checks and then having the father send part of the money back in the form of prepaid cards for iTunes, etc. The exact amount of money lost was unknown. The scam originated when the victim tried to purchase computer software and then received a refund for more than the amount of the purchase.
