Davita hires overnight security after burglaries at new Federal Way site

The suspect entered the construction site, broke the chain hoisting two welders to the ceiling and stole the welders.

Following is a sample from the Federal Way police log:

Feb. 6

Malicious mischief: At 6 p.m. at 930 S. 336th St., the owner of a local business arrived at work to find a broken rear window to the office building. After further review, it appeared that an unidentified subject heaved a large granite slab through the large plate glass window. Evidence showed the suspect did not make entry inside the office. No property was missing.

Birthday bash: At 9:41 p.m. in the 31000 block of 50th Lane SW, the victim was having a birthday party for the suspect at her residence. Both became intoxicated and the suspect broke a closet door. The suspect was arrested for malicious mischief and domestic violence, and was booked into jail.

Parking violation, drug possession: At 10:13 p.m. at 31130 Pacific Highway S., officers were conducting extra patrol in the area and viewed a vehicle parked in a handicapped stall without the proper handicap identifiers. Officers contacted a male walking away from the vehicle, and police discovered he had a Federal Way warrant for his arrest. Officers searched the suspect and found drugs inside his pockets. He was arrested, transported to the police department and then released from custody after he was given a court date.

Fraud: At 2:35 p.m. at the Club Palisades apartments, officers responded to a report of a fraud and interviewed the victim who reported an unknown person called him and asked him for his social security number. The victim gave his information due to the caller stating he was a law enforcement officer of some kind. The victim was unable to give any accurate suspect information. Officers gave information to the victim explaining how to report the credit fraud to the credit bureau.

Assault: At 4:16 p.m. in the 200 block of S. 341st Place, a boyfriend and girlfriend were involved in an argument that turned physical when the boyfriend began punching and slapping the girlfriend. Police arrested the boyfriend; the girlfriend was transported to the hospital as she may be pregnant.

Feb. 5

Man cashes, spends fraudulent check: At 11:06 a.m. at 1900 SW Campus Drive, the reporting party told police he had received a random check in the mail from a Susan Knable out of Minnesota in the amount of $6,750. He cashed the check and spent the money before the check returned as fraudulent. He said the bank advised him it was a fraudulent check. He did not know why someone would send him the check. Police were unable to determine a crime due to there being no loss.

Burglary: At 6 p.m. at 32275 32nd Ave. S., an unknown suspect entered a construction site for the Davita office building and stole two welders that were hoisted up to the ceiling with a chain hoist. The suspect broke the chain and unbolted the welders. The job site was also burglarized a week prior. The project manager stated they will be hiring security overnight starting Feb. 5. There is no suspect information.

Transient with felony warrant: At 10:04 a.m. at 1014 S. 320th St., an unwanted person was sleeping in the doorway of a business. An employee called to have police remove the man. Police found the man has a felony warrant out of Pierce County for failing to register as a sex offender, no bail. The suspect was booked into Pierce County Jail.

Feb. 4

Business burglary: At 9:52 a.m. at 1830 S. 324th Place, employees arrived at the business complex to discover their dental office had been burglarized. It appeared the suspect made forced entry through the rear broken window to the business. The suspect ransacked the interior and multiple electronic devices appeared to be missing.

Malicious mischief: At 6:30 p.m. at 533 S. 336th St., a business owner reported someone threw a rock at a large window next to the main door of his business and shattered the window. He reported somebody had broken out the first pane of the window a few nights ago. He is concerned that he or his business are being targeted by an unknown suspect.
