Dec. 23: A woodinville man came home from work one snowy evening recently to find his house utterly ransacked. Many valuable items were missing, including a large-screen TV, video equipment, medications, and snowboards. But what the thieves failed to take away with them was - their car. It was stuck in more than a foot of snow at the bottom of the driveway.
Not that they hadn't tried. Clearly they preferred an escape with their take by car rather than on foot. A great many footprints in the snow at the scene, holes dug by hand around the car tires, and the presence of dirt from a nearby garden and various pieces of carpet and board in the driveway for traction give a hint of what must have been their near-desperation to get away. But like many of us, they were foiled by nature. The car was traced to its owner in Stanwood and will likely lead to the perpetrators. Bring chains next time!

Food emergency: Fla. man dials 911, complains that sandwich shop left sauce off Italian sub
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)
The sauce for a spicy Italian sandwich was apparently a must have for one Florida man. The man, Reginald Peterson, called 911 twice after a sandwich shop left off the sauce.
Peterson initially called the emergency number Thursday so that officers could have his subs made correctly, according to a police report. The second call was to complain that police officers weren't arriving fast enough.S
ubway workers told police that Peterson, 42, became belligerent and yelled when they were fixing his order. They locked him out of the store when he left to call police.When officers arrived, they tried to calm Peterson and explain the proper use of 911. Those efforts failed, and he was arrested on a charge of making false 911 calls.
Peterson did not have a listed phone number.

The case of the missing basketball hoop. It wasn't really stolen as mom suspected. The son just put it away this time when he was finished with it. Mom apologized for calling police.
In the middle of the night a man thought someone had been in his house. He didn't hear or see anyone, and nothing was moved or missing, but he did leave the door unlocked, and it was still unlocked. It was a "creepy night" in the quaint little town of Duvall.
Concerned mom called to discuss her daughter's activities. She was concerned that her daughter is shacked with the wrong guy (who is still married) and not making wise choices. Ya think?
