Inner tube arrest: At 11:07 p.m. Jan. 17, police were dispatched to the 31000 block of First Avenue South following a report of a suspicious noise that sounded like a muffled gun shot. Police learned previous domestic violence was reported at the residence, and one of the residents had a misdemeanor warrant for fourth-degree domestic violence assault in the amount of $5,100. Police detained the suspect as he was leaving his residence. The supsect told police a bicycle inner tube had popped inside the apartment. He permitted officers to enter his residence, and they found the damaged inner tube in the garbage. The suspect was taken into custody for the warrant and booked into SCORE Jail.

Not a tea party: At 8:55 p.m. Jan. 17 on South 342nd Place, officers responded to an apartment for a domestic assault where one roommate threw hot tea on another person, causing first- and second-degree burns. The suspect was arrested and booked into jail. The victim was transported to Harborview Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Armed robber: At 12:18 p.m. Jan. 17 in the 2100 block of Southwest 336th Street, an unknown male entered the Beverage and Smke Shop, pointed a silver revolver at the owner and demanded money. The suspect stole $461 before fleeing. Police did not find the suspect during checks of the area.

All in the family: At 5:31 p.m. Jan. 16, police responded to a residence in the 31000 block of First Avenue South following a burglary report. A woman reported seeing her grandson leaving the back of her residence with her iPad. The grandson had entered her residence after breaking a rear sliding door with a large rock and concrete decorative pillar. The woman pointed out the grandson to the office. The iPad was returned to the woman, and the suspect was booked for burglary.

Not appropriate for school: At 2:30 p.m. Jan. 16, an officer was contacted by Federal Way High School school administrators regarding a student in possession of an Airsoft pistol. A school principal found the weapon in the student’s backpack while conducting a “safety search.”

Realistic-looking gun: At 12:49 p.m. Jan. 16, an officer was dispatched to the 31000 block of Pacific Highway South following a report of a person with a gun. The officer contacted the suspect, who admitted to having a BB gun in his pocket. The officer seized the BB gun, which was described as a realistic replica of a Makarov .380 caliber pistol. The suspect was found to be a truant Federal Way High School student. The student was returned to school and released. He asked the officer dispose of the BB gun as it didn’t belong to him. The gun was booked into evidence for destruction.

At 8:41 a.m. Jan. 16 in the 35000 block of Pacific Highway South, employees reported a theft of wire at a work site. The wire was in two containers, and the foreman had placed vehicles blocking the opening to them.

The suspect then placed plywood against the container to block the view from the street. There is no suspect information.
