On Saturday, 9-10-2011 officers contacted a 20-year old male Lynnwood resident who had a large laceration to his right bicep/tricep and was bleeding profusely. His clothing had a significant amount of blood on it. The male said that he had been in a domestic altercation in our city and he had put his arm through a glass coffee table while wrestling with his girlfriend. The subject was very uncooperative and confrontational; he refused to give any information about the location of the incident or the name of his alleged girlfriend and possible victim. In total, several hours of combined resources were used to try and locate information that the subject refused to divulge. As a result, he was arrested, treated at Swedish Hospital and booked at the Snohomish County Jail for obstructing a police officer.
On Sunday, 9-11-2011 Police Chief Wilson, Commander Hansen, Commander McCaul, Officer Guthrie and City Manager represented the police department during the memorial and remembrance ceremony at the Alderwood Mall for the 10-year anniversary of the
terrorist attacks on 9-11-2001.
On 7-27-2010, Code Enforcement observed property violations involving a sofa, trash and debris surrounding an RV camper shell in disrepair located on the front lawn near the 6000 block of 225th St SW. Residents were issued a Notice of Violation 8.15.040.I – Debris and trash accumulations, 8.15.050.B.8 – Recreational or utility vehicles parked outside of a building shall be maintained in a clean, stable and well-kept state, which means that they shall have none of the following: a broken window, body damage or rust, 8.15.050.B.4 – Recreational or utility vehicles stored in a front yard shall be parked on an improved surface, or on a maintained surface per MTMC 19.125.070. On 8-27-2010, all the debris around the RV was removed. On 5-4-2011, after several returned notices and attempts to contact the property owner, Code Enforcement noted that in addition to the RV camper shell, there was now a junk vehicle parked on the front lawn. Code Enforcement issued an additional Notice of Violation. Contact with the property owner was made and the owner stated that they would be away on vacation over the next month and would take care of things when they returned. An inspection of the property on 8-5-2011 noted no corrections had been made. Code Enforcement issued a Notice and Order to all parties having interest in the property to either maintain the property or there would be civil penalties. This generated a response by the property owner. Over the next month Code Enforcement worked with the owner who soon removed the RV camper shell, cut the tall grass and donated the junk vehicle to a local charity.
