On Wednesday, October 24th, Shoreline Police investigated a suspicious circumstance at The Central Market, 15505 Westminster Way.  Close to 2:30pm, someone entered the market and left business cards for all to see.  The cards were advertisements for “pleasure rubs for seniors.”

TRESPASS:  Two men entered an abandoned apartment in the 14500 block of Phinney Ave North.  The apartment was rented to a friend but that friend was evicted.  Police were alerted to the presence of the two men by an apartment manager who advised police that the friend was evicted and there should be no persons in the unit and a possible burglary was taking place.  Eventually, the police found out that the two men were simply seeking shelter and a place to sleep at night.

DEATH of a SEX OFFENDER: A death certificate matched the identifiers of a registered sex offender who lived in the 16200 block of North Park Ave.  When it was correctly confirmed that the sex offender was deceased, the person/person’s name was removed from the state and local sex offender databases.

Is this repeated use of "bad man," "bad guy," "bad liar," "bad brother" (not to mention bad grammar) taken verbatim from the Shoreline Police Department reports, or is it Patchwork?

Editorial license is taken, which was in the case, and Tom you took note, which we hope you do. This person may not literally be bad and we say at the top that these reports do not indicate a conviction. The Shoreline police reports are initial reports, snippets really, and the full edited reports are available from King County, weeks or months later.

Cool. Thanks, Tony. My faith in Chief Ledford's force is restored.
