Man found laying in traffic: At 7:54 p.m. June 28 in the 1800 block of South 330th Street, police arrested a man on a $25,000 King County warrant for residential burglary after they found him laying in traffic and acting strangely. Medics arrived after he complained of chest pain and breathing issues. He was cleared and police transported him to SCORE jail.

Woman kidnapped: At 11:14 a.m. June 28 at the intersection of South 320th Street and 32nd Avenue South, a witness reported seeing a man get out of a vehicle and grab a female from behind and force her into his vehicle. He then threw the female’s phone to the ground and stomped on it. The man then drove southbound on 32nd Avenue South. The witness picked up the phone and turned it into police. Patrol officers were unable to locate the vehicle and the phone was booked into evidence.

Stop dirkin’ around: At 7:24 p.m. June 27 in the 28800 block of Military Road South, police arrested a man wanted in Auburn and Pacific and King and Pierce counties. The officer found him walking behind a strip mall near Walgreens, which happens to be near a known drug house. The man was acting strangely and wouldn’t take his hands out from under his armpits as the officer spoke to him. As he was detained, the officer found a slingshot in his left hand and a dirk in his right pocket.

Police catch heroin users: At 1:39 p.m. June 27 at 33838 Pacific Highway S., detectives trespassed multiple people after they caught them about to inject heroin in the parking lot of Kitts Corner apartments.

Homeless people trespassed: At 8:24 a.m. June 26 in the 32000 block of 32nd Avenue South, police were notified of an active transient camp near a southbound Interstate 5 off ramp. Police checked the area and found the camp on private property. They discovered trash and two shopping carts. The property owner has a current no trespassing letter on file for the land. Officers told the person at the property to “move along” and he agreed.

Three transients warned, encampment cleaned: At 9:30 a.m. June 26 in the 36300 block of Pacific Highway South, police trespassed three homeless people from a wilderness area they were using for an encampment. Police noted in their report that a notice to vacate was issued 10 days prior and was still posted at the time they were trespassed.

Creepy driver follows teens: At 1:08 p.m. June 26 in the 34400 block of 21st Avenue Southwest, two 15-year-old girls were walking southbound on 21st Avenue Southwest when they were approached by a man in his 30s driving a blue pickup truck. The man followed the girls and asked them if they wanted a ride. The girls went home and called 911. The investigating is ongoing.

Toddler found sleeping near mother’s heroin needles: At 5:04 p.m. June 26 in the 31800 block of Pacific Highway South, officers responded to an unwanted subject call and found a woman sleeping in her vehicle with a 2-year-old boy sleeping in the backseat.

Shooting reported at Union Apartments: At 12:39 a.m. June 25 in the 2100 block of Southwest 352nd Street, officers responded to a shooting at the Union Apartments. The victims weren’t injured, nor did they cooperate with the investigation, declining to prosecute.

Man committed for ingesting meth: At 4:40 a.m. June 25 in the 33300 block of Pacific Highway South, a male reported he swallowed $60 worth of meth and was unable to control his movements, nor speak. South King Fire & Rescue was unable to get his vitals because of his uncontrollable movements. He also couldn’t stand on his own and told them his heart felt like it was going to explode. Because he was unable to get medical care on his own, he was involuntarily committed. Police noted he also has an outstanding warrant for his arrest.

Resident reports pants-less man: At 12:55 p.m. June 23 in the 35300 block of 21st Avenue Southwest, a neighbor called to report lewd activity near a wooded area across the street. The complainant said they saw a man in his 60s, bald, wearing a green shirt, possibly homeless who was exposing himself from a wooded area inside a fenced area. Officers walked the area but could not locate the male described.

“Low life” brandishes gun in road rage: At 2:16 p.m. June 23 in the 100 block of South 348th Street, a victim said, while driving westbound on South 348th Street, he saw a white Volkswagon GTI cut off other vehicles in traffic. As they were stopped next to each other at a light, they got into an argument about the way the driver in the Volkswagon was driving. The victim said he told the driver to pull over. The suspect then produced a black handgun and held it on top of his steering wheel. When the light turned green, the two drove off in different directions. The victim didn’t get the license plate, but he did see the back of the suspect’s vehicle had a sticker that said “low life” on the back window.

Drunk driver crashes into store: At 8:38 p.m. June 23 in the 4600 block of Southwest 320th Street, police arrested a driver for a DUI after they crashed their vehicle into a 7-Eleven store’s front window. The vehicle was towed and held for 12 hours.

Strong armed robbery at Grocery Outlet: At 7:06 p.m. June 22 in the 32900 block of Pacific Highway South, police arrested a man for first-degree robbery.
