Following is a sample from the Federal Way police log:

Five fake names: At 5:56 a.m. Oct. 11 in the 1600 block of South 312th Street, an officer on foot patrol found two men sleeping in the back of a parking lot. The officer knew one of the men, but the other man gave the officer five fake names. That man’s real identity was confirmed, and he had two warrants from Des Moines. He was arrested.

Makeshift hut: At 12:14 p.m. Oct. 11 in the 1600 block of South 312th Street, officers located a makeshift hut behind a private business with three transient individuals inside. Another transient individual was sleeping beneath a tree in the same area. All four were banned from the property.

Preschool lockdown: At 12:46 p.m. Oct. 11 in the 30000 block of Pacific Highway South, officers responded to reports of illegal gunfire in a wooded area. Officers found four transient campsites along the trails. A female transient was trespassed from the private property. No suspects were located in relation to the sounds of gunshots. A nearby preschool was put on temporary lockdown while police checked the area.

Church youth leader: At 3:50 p.m. Oct. 11, a woman and her daughter came to the Federal Way Police Department to report that the daughter has been involved in a sexual relationship with her 24-year-old church youth leader.

Celebration Park: At 5:22 a.m. Oct. 10 at 1095 South 324th Street, officers responded to reports of a male looking into vehicles at Celebration Park. The male had a felony warrant and was booked into SCORE Jail.

The students felt scared for their safety and found the contact unusual, although the man did not speak to them.

Tow yard arrest: At 3 p.m. Oct. 10 in the 33100 block of 15th Avenue South, an officer responded to a parking complaint and discovered the vehicle’s owner had two misdemeanor warrants. The man fled on foot when officers tried to contact him, and a search in the area turned up negative. The vehicle was impounded for having expired license plates.

Gun in parking lot: At 9:30 a.m. Oct. 9 at 1400 S. 348th St., police responded to a report of a handgun that was found in the parking lot of the Quality Inn and Suites hotel. Police took the gun.
