Burglary suspect flees house when resident comes home for lunch

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

May 7

Fabricated story: At approximately 9:58 a.m. at 2450 S. Star Lake Road, an officer was dispatched to Mark Twain Elementary School to a robbery call. The school was on lockdown. When the officer arrived on scene, he contacted the principal, the mother of the student and the student who claimed they had been robbed. After further investigation it was determined that the student had fabricated the story about a man with a shotgun.

Harassment: At approximately 3:39 p.m. near the 2600 block of SW 330th St., a male victim called 911 to report harassment by an individual. According to the victim, the suspect wishes to pursue a romantic relationship with the victim, even though the victim is not interested. The harassment has consisted of unwanted text messages and postings on social media. At this point in time the harassment doesn’t seem to be criminal, but the victim was advised to call 911 if the suspect shows up at his home. The victim requested a case number.

May 8

Burglary: At approximately 12:09 p.m. near the 32300 block of 18th Ave. SW, officers responded to a residential burglary. An unknown male was found inside the residence unlawfully and stealing items from the residence. The suspect fled the house and the area in a black Mercedes-Benz after a witness returned home in the early afternoon for a lunch break. A possible suspect and vehicle description was found and forwarded to CIS for review.

Homeless harassment: At approximately 3:18 p.m. near the 34800 block of Pacific Highway S., officers responded to a call to document a voicemail received by the mayor’s office. The message was left by an unidentified male who asked if he needed a “permit” to clear off the area of drug addicts and homeless people who were allegedly harassing his business. The unidentified male did not tell his name or the name of his business. The caller said he was going to show them how to do it. This is an informational report only.

May 10

Abandoned dog: At approximately 4:42 p.m. near the 1320 block of S. 324th St., a vehicle was parked at the listed location for about five hours with a dog observed in the back seat. The dog had a bed and a food bowl, but it appeared the dog had already eaten the food. The dog was shaking and appeared to have been abandoned. Burien was contacted to try to locate the owner but no response was received. The dog was transported to the station. The owner is currently unknown.
