May 16

Fleeing vehicle: At approximately 3:02 a.m. near the 34400 block of 16th Ave. S., officers attempted to make a traffic stop with a vehicle. The vehicle then fled the traffic stop and drove through a fence at the listed business, damaging the fence. Photos were taken of the fence and entered into the case log. The vehicle was not found.

Ring theft: At approximately 11:10 a.m. near the 2040 block of S. 327th Lane, officers responded to a reported theft at the listed location. Apparently an unknown family member stole a gold diamond ring valued at about $3,000 from the victim’s mother’s apartment. The victim said her mother had just passed away and had willed the ring to her. The victim wanted this incident documented but she did not want to press charges. The case is currently closed, for records only.

DOC sweep: At approximately 4:23 p.m. near the 1900 block of SW 304th St., officers were conducting Department Of Corrections warrant sweeps. According to the report, during a welfare check of an abandoned transient camp, contact was made with a subject. The subject willingly gave their identification and a check with dispatch revealed an active and confirmed warrant for his arrest out of Des Moines. The subject was arrested and transported to SCORE jail.

Parking lot domestic violence: At approximately 1:42 p.m. at 1900 S. 314th St., officers responded to a call of a physical domestic violence taking place in the parking lot of the listed business.

Verbal domestic: At approximately 7:13 p.m. near the 1320 block of S. 324th St., officers responded to a call of a verbal domestic in which a male was seen throwing a female to the ground. Upon officer arrival and after an investigation, it was determined no assault occurred. The female had swung her purse at the male and fell due to her intoxicated state. The female requested transport to the hospital for minor bumps and bruises.

Vehicle pursuit: At approximately 12:13 a.m. near the 1800 block of S. 288th St., officers located a listed stolen vehicle in the area of 288th and Pacific Highway. The stolen Honda attempted to flee northbound on Pacific Highway, but lost control and crashed into a stopped vehicle. Both occupants then proceeded to flee on foot. Officers gave chase on foot and successfully took both occupants into custody.

May 19

Involuntary committal: At approximately 2:50 near the 31850 block of Pacific Highway S., officers witnessed a female who was not making any sense when speaking. She kept saying she was Jesus and the police were demons. Then she started saying she had built the tires on the police cars and she was a demon while her mom was the devil. She had soiled herself, and proceeded to say she was doing magic tricks with her face. She thought they were in Seattle, and asked to be taken to Arizona. Business owners called the police on her for shoplifting.

Robbery: At approximately 4:39 p.m. near the 2200 block of S. Commons, a juvenile suspect had shoplifted several items from Target. Once the suspect exited the store with the unpaid merchandise, stoer security attempted to detain the suspect. The suspect then began fighting with security and bit one of the security officers multiple times on his hand.
