Auburn police blotter | Nov. 30
Auburn police responded to the following calls for service among many others, between Nov. 19 and Nov. 25:
Theft: 7:37 a.m., 1700 block of A Street Southeast. While a woman was inflating her tires, some thief reached inside her car and swiped her purse.
Obstructing justice: 10:10 p.m., 1001 18th St. NE. While police were undercover, scoping out a a location for possible murder suspects, some guy interfered with surveillance, blew their cover and refused to go home.
Vandalism: 6:42 a.m., 230 block of 14th Street Southeast. Police arrested a male person— no hint of age offered — for some undefined act of malicious mischief with a scosh of equally undefined obstruction of justice chunked in for some sort of balance in vagueness.
Prowl, theft, trespassing: 8:49 p.m., 3400 block of C Street Northeast. After a witness came upon him while he was stealing fuel in an industrial parking lot, a thief tried to escape but police busted him a block away.
Warrant arrest: 11 a.m., 25 W. Main St. When a woman missed the date when she had been required to show up in court to answer for failing to operate a vehicle without a court-ordered interlock device, the court issued a warrant for her arrest, police caught up with her, busted her and released her with a shiny new court date.Burglary: 4:50 p.m., 5800 S 331st St. Somebody broke into a construction trailer but didn't appear to have stolen anything.
Pole pilfering: 9:55 p.m., 1148 E. Main St. Auburn City Imports was closed for the night, and a burglar tried to take advantage of that fact by stealing a metal pole but got caught, fessed up, and the business gave him a vigorous boot from the premises with a warning not to come back.
