The following information was compiled from City of Sammamish police reports:
An employee of a Klahanie restaurant called police Aug. 17 to report unruly activity by a female customer.
The 47-year-old Sammamish woman, who appeared highly intoxicated, was exposing herself to customers by undressing in the parking lot and provoking customers by flipping them off.
The woman then entered the restaurant bar and started taking her clothes off.
After making a scene, the woman got in her car and took off. She was spotted driving through Sammamish by police and pulled over on Inglewood Hill Road.
The woman, who in a previous arrest kicked out the window of a patrol car, was placed under arrest for DUI for drug use and taken to the Issaquah Jail.
SIGN VS. VAN
Sammamish police responded to a call of a vehicle being struck by a flagger in a construction zone Aug. 17.
The white van was traveling in the 23000 block of Northeast Eighth Street where the driver said his vehicle was purposely struck by a flagger holding a stop sign.
The construction worker said the van was traveling at a high rate of speed as he approached the site and that he was motioned at to slow down. The worker said when the sign was shown for the driver to stop, he did, but not in time as he collided with the sign.
Police were unable to determine who was telling the truth. There was no significant damage done to the van, only a black smudge that was easily rubbed off.
DIRT BIKE DUD
An apartment complex manager called police Aug. 23 to report that a resident was recklessly driving his dirt bike through the property on Inglewood Hill Road and damaging the landscaping.
Video evidence showed a rider wearing a helmet ride up a grass covered embankment, with several tire tracks in it, and use the lip of a curb to jump into a highly-used parking lot.
Police attempted to contact the alleged driver, who did not answer the door. Because no faces were seen in the video, police could not be certain who was riding the bike.
A Kirkland woman called police Aug. 24 to report that someone stuck an unused sanitary napkin to the grill of her SUV while she was at work in Sammamish.
The victim wanted to document the case in case it was the beginning of some form of harassment.
A City of Sammamish worker called police Aug. 22 to report a burglary and vandalism at Beaver Lake Park.
The worker found a supply shed opened and a John Deere tractor taken for a joy ride. The machine caused substantial damage to the field.
Vandals used a sharp stripe paint machine to write several racist, satanic and obscene phrases in the parking lot and walkways. The graffiti included a swastika and the phrase “Hail Satan.”
Police are unsure how the vandals entered the shed, but there didn’t appear to be any forced entry.
A Sammamish couple called police Aug. 21 to report someone broke into their home while they were away camping and stole more than $18,000 in items.
When they arrived at their home in the 3000 block of 212th Avenue Southeast, they found their gun safe opened in the driveway.
Several pieces of jewelry and electronics were taken. Thieves also made off with $1,800 worth of rolled quarters and a .22 caliber rifle.
Police responded to a call of construction items being stolen Aug. 23 at Northeast Eighth Street and 233rd Avenue Southeast in Sammamish.
Thieves allegedly took 10 traffic cones, a barricade and a no thru traffic sign. All items were valued at $300.
A Sammamish resident called police Aug. 25 to report someone stole mail from Margaret Mead Elementary, opened it and dumped it on a trail near the school.
Police met with the principal who identified it as “insignificant junk mail.” She said it was taken from the unlocked box in front of the school and that all important mail goes to the district main office. She also said she would request a locking mailbox from the district.
BLOWN UP BOTTLE
Sammamish police responded to a report of what sounded like a gunshot Aug. 23 in the 2200 block of 236th Avenue Northeast.
Upon arrival police found a Honey Bucket outhouse that smelled strongly of sulfur and had a broken Advil bottle inside. The bottle appeared to have been blown up from the inside out and had what looked like a hole for a fuse in the lid.
No observable damage was done to the Honey Bucket.
