In the blotters: cereal killers, amateur mechanics and zombie eagles

  • Flickr/8136496@N05

Here's a roundup of some of the funnier police blotter bits from around the county over the past few months. (Most) identifying details have been removed.

Disturbance between live-in boyfriend and girlfriend. Boyfriend was throwing Fruit Loops cereal all over the carpet. Investigation determined no crime occurred. Information report taken.

Complainant came into the station regarding being charged monthly for the past two years for a service she did not want. After that time she realized the e-mails she had been receiving were not junk mail, but the instructions on how to cancel the service. She was advised to follow the instructions to cancel the service.

Intoxicated female jumped out of car while husband was driving. Female then urinated on the pavement and fell down into some sticker bushes.

A male was trying to get his motor home running after it had been sitting for some time. When the motor stalled in the (roadway), he decided to pour gas in the carburetor. The gas ignited and started the vehicle on fire, which almost burned completely to the ground before being extinguished.

(Caller) called from Langley to report being called names while loading on to the out-bound ferry in Mukilteo. She said a man she almost hit in another vehicle called her a bad name. (She) wanted him arrested. (She) was advised that he could not be arrested for calling her a name. (She) was not satisfied and hung up on the officer.

(Caller) reported there were two bald eagles, one was injured and one was dead. Prior to arrival, both birds flew away.
