Burglary report

When a homeowner returned to find a strange man inside his house, he understandably called 911 — and so did the intruder.
Lt. Kelli Sheffer said the intruder told police he had broken into a home Monday evening shortly before the owner arrived. He decided to call for help because he was worried the homeowner might have a gun, she added.
The Oregonian newspaper reported the intruder had been taking a shower in the house in Washington Park, Portland., when the owner returned.
Accompanied by his two German Shepherds, the homeowner asked what the man was doing and the intruder locked the bathroom door.
That was when the the man called the police. At the same time, the homeowner also dialed 911 with his account of what was happening.
The Oregonian said Portland police arrived with their own dog and arrested the intruder "without further incident."
Sheffer said 24-year-old Timothy James Chapek, of Portland, was booked into jail for investigation of first-degree criminal trespass.

Snow Foils Escape

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!
