I love living in a town where you get reports like these in the local newspaper:
A handcarved wooden pheasant statue was likely stolen from a woman’s Island House apartment sometime between Jan. 2 and Jan. 6. There is also a chance that it was misplaced or given away, according to the woman’s daughter. No suspects are known.
A 19-year-old Mercer Island male shoplifted a bottle of Advil from the QFC on S.E. 28th Street on Jan. 12. He was detained by store security officers who saw him leave without paying. The suspect confessed to the theft. Police confirmed the suspect’s identification, and he was cited and released.
