Amber Alert called for abducted girl

SEATTLE – An Amber Alert was called Thursday morning when a 9-month-old boy was abducted from Children’s Hospital in Seattle hours before he was supposed to have surgery, police said.

Police believe the baby, Riley Rogers, may be with his mother, Tina Carlsen, 35, of the Puyallup area, according to the Seattle Police Department.

Carlsen is described as a white woman with blond hair, standing 5 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing about 140 pounds. She was wearing blue jeans, a T-shirt and had her hair in a pony tail.

Police said Carlsen is believed to be driving a 1987 Jeep, license number 990-LFZ, and not to be driving a 1994 green Plymouth Voyager van, license number 270-SVS, police spokeswoman Deanna Nollette said early Friday

Anyone with information is asked to call the Seattle Police Department at 206-625-5011.

Bellingham: Everett firefighter pleads guilty

An Everett firefighter pleaded guilty Thursday to illegally using his fire department vehicle to pull over a Bellingham woman on I-5.

About 10:30 p.m. April 20, Jack C. Robinson, 59, was following a car northbound on I-5 near the Whatcom-Skagit county line when he turned on the emergency lights, causing the other car to pull over, according to Whatcom County District Court documents.

Robinson approached the car, driven by Joyce Gidigbi, 43, and motioned for her to roll down her window before seeing she had a passenger and returning to his car.

When police found Robinson, a loaded gun was in the fire car’s trunk.

Robinson was charged with impersonating an officer and possessing a loaded weapon. He was sentenced to 80 hours of community service and a $250 fine and is retiring on disability from the fire department, said his attorney, Jeffrey Lustick.

Robinson also received a year probation and a deferred sentence, meaning if he commits no violations in a year, the crime will be removed from his record.
