The following is a sample from the Federal Way police log:
Just a day late for fireworks: At 11:26 p.m. July 5 in the 30000 block of 11th Avenue South, officers were dispatched for a fireworks complaint in addition to South King Fire and Rescue. The reporting party told police a firework had been thrown from a vehicle and that the grass of the listed location had caught fire. When they arrived, officers found burned a patch of grass 5 by 15 feet, and it had been extinguished.
Suspect just can’t stay away: At 2:23 p.m. July 5 in the 1300 block of Southwest Campus Drive, police responded to the location after a call from the previous day. The suspect pulled a gun on her and her daughters at their home but fled shortly thereafter.
This man just isn’t safe: At 7:58 a.m. July 3 in the 31600 block of Third Place Southwest, a husband, coming off of a methamphetamine high, got into an argument with his wife over potential infidelity. The husband told his wife he “just wants to die” but confirmed that it was just a statement and had no meaning. Police gave the husband a ride away from their residence but he texted his wife and said he was returning. She said she didn’t feel safe but police had no reason to keep him from returning. The officer told the wife she would need to go to the courthouse to get some type of protection order for that, but she replied, “No way would I do that. I love him too much.”
Just buy a generator already: At 8:48 a.m. July 3 in the 1700 block of South 320th Street, unknown suspects cut the lock around the grated covering on a Stacks Burgers food truck sometime over night and stole a generator. Police found lock parts at the scene but do not have any suspect information.
Man makes serious threats at Safeway: At 12:05 a.m. July 2 at 2109 SW 336th St., a suspect threatened to kill another person, the manager of Safeway as well as employees. The suspect was arrested and booked into SCORE jail and the case was forwarded to a Federal Way prosecutor.
Man pays for room, not the bugs that came with it: At 6:26 a.m. July 2 in the 33000 block of Pacific Highway South, a man called to report a dispute between him and a New Horizon Motel employee. The man said there were bed bugs and cockroaches in the room. When he went to confront management, management refused to return his identification card or give him a refund. Management claimed the man only paid for one bed in the room but used both beds in the room and demanded an additional $30. Management advised they cannot “hold ransom” the identification card and wanted the man trespassed.
