Not really missing: At 2:47 p.m. Jan. 3 a person reported missing from Auburn came into the Federal Way police station. She had no visible injuries or complaint of pain. She said she left home because her family disliked her new boyfriend. The female’s family was called, and they picked her up.

Wrong way to make a political state: At 11:45 a.m. Jan. 3 in the 33400 block of 37th Place Southwest, a woman reported an unknown suspect sprayed graffiti on her fence. The graffiti were pictures of male genitalia and words: “F*** Trump and Putin. While the incident occurred last week, the woman wasn’t sure she should call 911 until her friends told her to. She does not know who may have done it. A neighbor also got graffiti painted on their house, but they cleaned it up. The woman was referred to the city’s graffiti removal.

Wrong fight to pick: At 7:55 p.m. Jan. 2 at the McDonald’s on Pacific Highway, a female reported an unknown person took her unattended backpack from a table inside the restaurant while she was in the restroom. The victim said a minute later she saw a male outside in the parking lot. Thinking it was the suspect, she challenged him to a fight.

Gang signs: At 8:08 p.m. Jan. 2 in the 3000 block of South 288th Street, someone reported three unknown suspects spray painted what appeared to be gang signs on the rear part of the victim’s home and fence line. The victim said he heard a noise and chased the suspects away. He said it was very dark, and he could not describe them. He said this has been an ongoing issue for the past two years but has picked back up in the last week. Damages were estimated at $200.

Hi-tech scam: At 6:42 p.m. Jan. 2 in the 1000 block of South 315th Street, a victim reported his computer was “locked up” by a virus and he believed a company out of India that contacted him was going to fix it.

An officer advised him to also contact the FBI to attemp to report the international fraud.
