The following information was compiled from the City of Sammamish police reports:
Sammamish police broke up a party July 31 containing approximately 200 teenagers in a “normal-sized” house in the 2700 block of 232nd Avenue Southeast.
The organizer, whose parents were out of state, reportedly locked her younger siblings, 14 and 10, in her parent’s bedroom while the party was taking place. Neighbors expressed concern because one of the siblings had Multiple Sclerosis and is severely disabled. Both children were safe and healthy.
Police contacted the parents and warned them of letting their daughter throw parties of this magnitude when other children are in the home. The report was forwarded to Child Protective Services.
BB GUN ACCIDENT
Sammamish police responded to a call of a 9-year-old accidentally shooting a 4-year-old in the eye with a BB gun July 31.
Upon arrival, emergency responders told police the boy was shot in the left eye and they believed the BB might still be in the socket.
The boy who shot the gun said he was shooting his Red Rider BB gun out on the porch on a home in the 2100 block of Southeast 35th Place when the other boy walked outside and he accidentally hit him in the eye. The boy was transported to Children’s Hospital by his parents who declined an ambulance.
A Sammamish woman called police July 31 after her neighbor allegedly flipped her off and gave a menacing look.
When police arrived they told the woman that the man’s actions weren’t criminal. She said that she just wanted the information documented as they have had numerous problems in the past.
When police asked the man if he made the gesture to the woman, he smiled and said, “They are the reason we had to sell our house and move, so yes, I may have waved at her.” Police warned the man that some people could see it as threatening. He was receptive and said that it was the last day in there house in the 3400 block of East Lake Sammamish Shore Lane Northeast, and he hoped this would all be behind them soon.
FAILED TIRE THEFT
Sammamish police were called Aug. 2 after a man took a tire off a vehicle and attempted to put it on his own car.
The man, who said he occasionally crashed at the home in the 1700 block of 211 Way Northeast, told police that he had permission to take the tires off the vehicle. However, the wheel didn’t fit on the man’s car as the “lug nuts were all wrong.” When police contacted the owner of the vehicle he said the man did not have permission. Because the tire was still at the house and it had no damage, the owner agreed to let the man replace the tire and go on his way.
A man called police Aug. 1 after someone stole a briefcase, an iPad and passports from the back of his vehicle.
The man said he must have left his vehicle unlocked the previous night in the 1500 block of 220th Place Northeast. He feared that some of the sensitive information in the briefcase would be used for identity theft, including his son’s passports and other tax documents.
A homeowner called police July 30 after discovering someone entered his home and stole several prescription drugs including oxycodone and hydrocondone.
The thieves appeared to enter the home in the 21600 block of Northeast Way through a rear sliding glass door that was left open.
Sammamish police transported a man to Redmond on July 30 after he failed to display a proper peddler’s license.
When police approached the man, he said he knew why they were there and that he had a license with the city, but he left it in his vehicle. The man could not identify the name of his boss or company and was told that next time he needed to have a license or a future violations could result in an arrest.
A woman called police Aug. 1 days after receiving a call from a post office employee from a private cell phone after normal post office hours. The woman, who was returning from vacationing in Arizona, told police she had been in contact with the post office a lot because she was having her mail forwarded to her. The call “creeped” her out because she felt the employee was checking to see if she’d be home anytime soon for personal reasons.
The caller admitted it might have been nothing but wanted police to be aware in case they could relate any burglaries to calls from the post office regarding mail stoppage.
A resident along Lake Sammamish called police Aug. 1 after their large two-person inner tube went missing overnight.
The tube was tied up on the beach area next to the house dock.
The caller believed someone who frequents the “community dock” just south of the location took the tube after dark. It was not known if the tube was taken, or drifted from its resting place.
A rear window of a car was reported shattered Aug. 1 after a man parked the vehicle in a different area because of resurfacing in his complex in the 22700 block of Northeast 4th Street.
Nothing was taken from the vehicle. It appears it was just an act of vandalism.
A home burglar alarm thwarted an attempted theft Aug. 1 in Sammamish.
Neighbors called police when they heard the alarm in the 2900 block of 224th Place Southeast. Upon arrival officers found a shattered window with rocks near the ground.
