Auburn police responded to the following calls for service, among many others, between Feb. 8 and Feb. 12.
Burglary: Overnight, 1015 24th St. NE. A person, or persons, unknown pulled costumes through the open window of room 306 at Cascade Middle School, then dumped powdered poster paint over them and onto the ground. Officers found several broken Old English brand beer bottles on the ground by the window. The intruders also used the poster paint to write "MK" on the outside walls of the school and on the grass.
Theft: Overnight, 200 block of 16th Street Southeast. A boy told police that a man he considered a friend swiped his skateboard.
Weapons offense: 1:31 p.m., 800 4th St. NE. Auburn High School authorities found a student on campus with a pocket knife. Because that is a violation of school policy and state law, the school suspended the girl. The law intends to charge her with possessing a dangerous weapon at school.
Fraud: Noon, 6100 block of Nathan Way Southeast. Sometime between Dec. 1 and Dec. 23 of last year, an Auburn resident sent $900 via wire transfer to a bogus travel company, which promptly pocketed the money and disappeared. The resident is trying to get the money back.
Theft of services: 1 p.m., 801 Auburn Way N. Apparently dissatisfied with her 'do, a woman refused to pay for services Third Dimension Hair Salon had rendered to the hairs upon her head.
Trespassing: 5:08 p.m., 1346 6th St. NE. Somebody at a home for sale rendered him or herself so obnoxious that he or she got the scramola.
Burglary: 11:59 p.m., 100 block of E Street Southeast. Somebody stole a power tool from a man's shed sometime between Dec. 31 and Jan. 2.
Shoplifting: 3:30 p.m., 1101 Supermall Way SW. A man stole jackets from an undisclosed business at the SuperMall on Feb. 6. Employees recognized the man upon his return four days later when he selected several coats from displays and fled with the goods. Police arrested the man in a vehicle as he was trying to make his getaway. Police also arrested the driver for motoring with a suspended license and possessing drug paraphernalia, and busted a passenger for a warrant.

Credit card/ATM fraud: 11:30 p.m., 1000 block of 6th Street Southeast. Somebody slithered into an unlocked car and stole a woman's purse. Somebody, maybe the same person, maybe not, later used the woman's debit card at three separate locations.
Disorderly conduct: 3:08 a.m., 2802 Auburn Way N. A fellow beat so vigorously upon the windows and directed such a stream of colorful, exotic phraseology at shocked patrons of the Sports Page Bar and Grill that police showed up and arrested him.
