Summertime Crime (Redux)
If this headline sounds a bit familiar, well, it is.
Another victim of Seasonal Affective Disorder went to the Dark Side after several continuous days of snow left him craving the smell of freshly cut grass.
With a half a foot or more of the cold, white stuff completely hiding any signs of growing turf, this vitamin D deficient defalcator forced open the storage shed doors at a property in the 16200 block of NE Woodinville Duvall Road and made off with the lawn care equipment.
Those grass cutting days will be upon us sooner than most of us would like.
Sounds like someone needs to take a chill in the winter wonderland that is our current reality.
Perhaps it was the call of the pastrami which had this bologna burglar skulking about a popular deli in the 19800 block of 141st Place NE in the wee hours of the morning.
Maybe it was the dream of the ultimate Dagwood Sandwich that routed this prosciutto pilfering prowler out of a deep sleep and on a processed meat mission.
We’ll never know what motivated this pepperoni plunderer to shatter the glass door of this establishment, leaving cupboard doors ajar and drawers agape.
After this cutlet caper, the crook took his Bumstead business elsewhere.

The hotspots haven’t changed either: The Park and Ride area, and parking areas along and near NE 175th.
This repeat report is getting beyond redundant. It is hereby declared that all vehicles are henceforth off limits to thieves.
That should fix it.
Room with a View
A rooftop in the 14100 block of NE Woodinville Duvall Road was the temporary address for a person or persons unknown.
Maintenance personnel found the basic comfort accoutrements, including a sleeping bag, socks, sweatpants and soda pop, plus a jacket and neckties for the discerning GQ gentleman.
Alas, this act of trespass came to an abrupt and ignominious termination.
