At 11:15 a.m. Wednesday, May 4, in the 2300 block of West Sims Way, a caller reported to police that their car had been broken into overnight.

Two smart phones and a chainsaw were stolen. Additionally, the thief had used the cell phones to send money to their own account via Cash App and PayPal.

A total of around $1,800 in items and funds has been stolen from the caller. The case remains under investigation.

At 2:50 p.m. Wednesday, May 4, a noise complaint was filed in the 1900 block of Sherman Street after a caller reported hearing an engine revving nonstop since 6 a.m.

It was a black, four-door car and the caller said that the driver did not live on the street. Officers arrived shortly after and contacted the driver of the black car. The driver appeared to be working on the car, but wasn’t revving it.

Officers told the driver about the complaint and asked them to try and keep the noise down. No crime had occurred and police left the area.

At 3:45 p.m. Wednesday, May 4, a vehicle in the 400 block of Kearney Street had reportedly been stolen from a nearby lot.

The car was described as a light blue Hyundai 4-door with a Bernie Sanders sticker on the rear bumper.

Officers arrived and searched the surrounding area, but the car was gone. The situation is under investigation and police are waiting for further information.

At 8:30 a.m. Thursday, May 5, in the 3100 block of San Juan Avenue, a vehicle had been broken into overnight. Construction tools and electrical material had been taken from the vehicle after its sliding door had been left unlocked.

The electrical cable and tools added up to around $3,500 in total value. The reporting party found a crowbar in the driveway that didn’t belong to them.

Officers went to the property to investigate the scene, collect evidence, and take photos. The case is currently under investigation.

At 7:55 p.m. Thursday, May 5, in the 600 block of Rainier Street, a caller reported an indecent exposure situation to police.

The caller was walking around in a nearby park and came across a man and woman who appeared to be having sex on a park bench. The man was wearing a Carhartt jacket without any pants on. The caller said that they didn’t see any genitalia but knew what the two were doing.

Officers arrived and contacted the couple who told police that they were only making out. Officers gave a strict warning to the two for their behavior.
