The following is a sample of the Federal Way police blotter:

Colors just don’t coordinate: At 2:02 p.m. September 13 in the 30000 block of 24th Avenue Southwest, police were called after an unknown suspect shot seven light blue paint balls at the front of a residence. The person who called police did not see the suspect but heard a vehicle speed away. The paint balls hit the east side of the house and upper window. The victim was advised to wash the paint off with water. Officers spoke to several neighbors who had recorded surveillance, and they agreed to inform police if a suspect is identified in the footage.

Odd parenting technique: At 12:02 p.m. Sept. 12 in the 34500 block of Ninth Avenue South, an officer was contacted by a mother over the phone. She said she was at a doctor’s office with her 1-year-old daughter and the daughter’s father. The woman reported the father asked her if she wanted to “see something funny” and she agreed. The father then said something to his daughter about “a French kiss” and stuck out his tongue. The daughter then licked the father’s tongue. The mother reported that, due to drug use, the father does not have unsupervised visitation with the daughter.

Strange man reported by school: At 3:39 p.m. Sept. 12 in the 4600 block of Southwest 320th Street, a person reported to police that a shirtless male holding a beer was near a bus stop asking children if they had a ride and was also possibly exposing himself. The officer contacted someone in the area who said he did not see the man. The officer could not reach the reporting party. An area check was conducted, and the suspect was not located. The officer noted that school was being dismissed at the time and the place where incident occurred, and was within walking distance of the elementary school.

Delaying the inevitable: At 6:54 p.m. Sept. 11 in the 32000 block of Pacific Highway South, an officer responded to Rite Aid for an unwanted female, who was refusing to give concealed property back to the store employees. The female was arrested for theft, and a routine name check came back with three confirmed warrants. The suspect was searched and then placed in the back of a police car. While en route to SCORE Jail to book the suspect, she stated to the officer she swallowed three grams of heroin the officer had missed when searching her. The female’s hands were cuffed behind her back and seat belt at the time. She was taken to St. Francis Hospital and cleared after four hours. She told police she was having mental issues and wanted to be evaluated by a health care provider who subsequently cleared her to be released. The female was finally transported to SCORE Jail.

Mysterious shooting: At 11:17 p.m. Sept. 11 in the 32500 block of Military Road South, someone called to report hearing four to five gunshots in the area. Officers located a witness who heard five shots being fired from a car driving south. The reporting party was not able to describe the car or any of the suspects. A search of the road located one .45 casing. Police found no other witnesses or evidence.
