Man licks a mirror in parking lot and gets caught with marijuana

The following is a sample from the Federal Way police public information log:

• At 5:52 p.m. March 7, a male was seen in a parking lot at 1200 S. 324th St. licking a mirror and acting paranoid. Police officials were contacted and when they arrived, they saw the vehicle reported with the male inside. They found a glass pipe in his pocket and a bag of marijuana.

• At 12:28 a.m. March 12, officers were informed that a woman was found lying in some sticky bushes near 30809 18th Place SW, crying and not knowing how she got there. The woman said that she had just woken up and didn’t know what had happened, but showed scratches on her arms and face, and said that her boyfriend had dumped her the night before. She then went into an apartment, but when police officers arrived she wouldn’t open the door for them. Fearing for her safety, officers opened the door with the manager’s keys and found the place full of different kinds of drugs. The woman was eventually arrested for a warrant.

• At 12:13 a.m. March 9, officers responded to a call about conditions at a local residence. When arriving at 31224 20th Ave. S., there were two adults and three children. The place was extremely cluttered, filled with cat feces in every room, with flies and food scattered around the place.

• At 1:33 p.m. March 8, a lady who was seated on a bench inside a restaurant at 32065 Pacific Highway was reported to be yelling very loudly and talking to the wind. She was arguing about owing the restaurant and saying that George Washington had told her that it was OK. No charges were taken.

• At 10:02 p.m. March 7, officers received a call from a person who heard two suspects shout about shooting at a location in 1300 SW Campus Drive. The vehicle with the two men was identified; one occupant had a felony escape warrant and was immediately arrested and taken to King County jail.

• At 8:00 a.m. March 6, at 34600 12th Ave. SW, a 10-year-old student reported that he was being assaulted and harassed at his elementary school by other students in his class.

One of the store’s employee’s followed the suspect out of the store, but the man climbed into a van that was already waiting for him and left. No further suspect identification was provided.
