Stealing appeared to be the crime of choice in Edmonds in recent weeks, according to police department reports. Here’s a summary:
81oo block Lake Ballinger Way: A restaurant reported that a suspect ordered lunchtime food and drinks, then left without paying for his meal.
An Edmonds doctor told police that a former employee stole prescription forms from his office. The ex-employee was caught later that same day passing a forged prescription at a pharmacy in the 7300 block of 216th Street Southwest.
An unknown suspect broke into a locked refrigerator at the rear of a pizza restaurant in the 21100 block of 76th Avenue West. The thief grabbed a case of steak, some discarded used frying pans and – to make matters interesting -used tires and rims.
7300 block 224th Street Soutwest: A 52-year-old man was issued a criminal trespass warning after he was seen trying car door handles at a condominium complex.
21100 block Highway 99: A customer punched a kiosk machine in the lobby of a fast-food restaurant, breaking the glass screen.
8100 block 236th Street Southwest: A man reported that his flat screen TV was stolen from his apartment while he was out of town.
A gas station in the 22000 block Highway 99 reported that a man and woman pumped gas into their vehicle and drove away without paying.
A sandwich shop in the 23800 block of Highway 99 reported that a customer stole approximately $50 from the register till.
23600 block of Highway 99: A grocery store reported that a woman’s purse was stolen from her shopping cart. Using recorded video surveillance, the store provided a description of the suspect but police weren’t able to locate him.
Not quite in Edmonds… but…. my neighbors told me that there was a rash of theft at the Mountlake Terrace pool complex last weekend. Someone went through the lockers stealing keys, wallets, and phones, then went to the parking lot and used the keys to steal things from the vehicles! All of a sudden, paying 25 cents for the privilege to use a locker sounds like a good deal.
anyone know what all the sirens were about in Edmonds south of Meadowdale Monday night the 13th around 9PM?
Steve – I believe those may have been related to a car thief that was being chased in the Edmonds/Lynnwood area in that time. I happened to be looking at the police reports this morning, and the time frame and general location would be about right.
