Burglary: Overnight, 2707 I St. N.E. A burglary was reported at Work Source. Though the intruders damaged two locking mechanisms, they took nothing.

Flower filching: 11:44 a.m., 2902 Auburn Way S. Two males allegedly stole flower baskets hanging in front of the QFC grocery store. No value for the boosted blooms was given.

Bomb threat: 1:07 p.m., 30620 116th Ave. S.E. Somebody wrote a bomb threat on the wall of a bathroom stall at Rainier Middle School.

Attempted Burglary: Overnight, 2109 Auburn Way N. A man called to report that somebody had tried to break into one of his commercial buildings. Apparently the burglar, trying to break through a false roof, fell instead onto the curb. Nothing was taken.

Assault: 10:15 p.m., 500 block of 27th Street Southeast. A man got into an argument with his wife, things got primitive and police arrested him for second-degree assault. Seems his bride was unhappy with him because she sent him out to buy crack cocaine and he returned with mere booze.


Trespass: 10:10 a.m., 12400 Southeast 312th Street.
