THEFT: A trailer parked in the 300 block of 37th Street Northwest Thursday afternoon was broken into and tools were taken. Damage to the trailer door was estimated at $4,000.

$4000 for a trailer door?

BURGLARY: The Gosanko Chocolate Art store at 116 A St. S.E. was broken into and $1,500 in cash was taken. A glass door was damaged to gain entry.

As not chocolate was taken, I assume the criminal was a man.

CANDY MAN: At about 1:20 a.m. Oct. 26, police pulled over a driver in the 16100 block of Redmond Way for erratic driving. The officer's suspicions were aroused by the bolt cutters on the front passenger seat of his car. The car had some boxes strapped to the roof under a tarp and the officer asked the driver, a 38-year-old Seattle man, what it was. He told the officer he found them outside a grocery store and decided to take them. Upon closer investigation, it was revealed the man was carrying about $1,500 worth of stolen candy, in addition to some Christmas decorations and four large and expensive planter pots. He was arrested. The merchandise was confirmed to have come from a Bellevue QFC store, to which it was later returned.

FRAUD: On Wednesday, an Issaquah resident discovered that someone had accessed his or her bank account and withdrawn $11,000, while also making a deposit of about $1,000. Police consider this a case of identity theft and are continuing their investigation.

Depositing money to a stolen account? Smart.
