BURGLARY? A woman living in the 38000 block of 200th Avenue Southeast called police to report a burglary of household gifts Christmas morning. When deputies arrived, she met them at the door. She advised them that her live-in boyfriend had hid them in the basement, but would not confess to the deed.
CREDIT CARDS STOLEN: The adult children of a family were invited to the parents' home for Christmas Eve dinner. During the dinner, one of the daughters excused herself, saying she would be back shortly. She then proceeded to steal her father's credit cards.
DISTURBANCE: Police were dispatched after six or more women began fighting about 2 a.m. Sunday at Taqueria El Riconsito restaurant, 301 N. Central Ave. The brawl apparently started when one woman accused another of crowding ahead of others in a line to order food. Because of conflicting accounts, no actions were taken.
SHOPLIFT: On Dec. 24, a woman shoplifted some work boots from a store in the 2200 block of 148th Avenue Northeast. She was arrested and booked into Redmond jail, and later transferred to Bellevue police for another outstanding theft warrant.
