Wild chickens, a blue corvette and two 18-packs of beer

Here are some of the more interesting Mountlake Terrace police reports from the last week:

Friday, March 12


A man ran out of Goodies convenience store with two 18-packs of beer. A UPS driver was in the store at the time and happened to see the whole thing occur. The UPS driver ran out to his truck and started following the man down the street until the man snuck in to the Terrace Heights/Northern Lights apartment complex. The man was not found.

Graffitti was found at Mountlake Terrace Elementary school near 220th and 52nd. The graffitti contained racial slurs and made reference to marijuana.

Sunday, March 14


An officer saw a blue corvette speed out of the AM/PM parking lot at 212th St. and 44th Ave W. The police officer started following behind and it appeared as if the suspect was trying to elude the officer by going down side streets. The officer finally pulled the corvette over near 220th. The man had a bunch of white powder around his mouth, he said he’d just eaten a bunch of antacids. The officer assumed it was to cover the smell of alcohol on his breath. The driver was obviously under the influence. He refused a breathalyzer but was arrested and processed at Lynnwood jail. After speaking to a public defender on the phone, he agreed to take the breathalyzer. The results were 0.096 and 0.106. The officer brought the man back to his house and the man’s last words to the officer were that he hoped the officers “mother passes away.” A real class act.

Chickens on the loose

An officer was dispatched to a home near 216th St. SW and 48th Ave W. A man said that some chickens that were formally located on the property that is currently being developed have been crowing an waking him up at 3 AM. He said that the chickens had been staying on his neighbors property for the past couple months. The officer talked to the neighbor and they said that they Pasado’s Safe Haven was suppoed to have come and picked up the chickens but they never showed up. The neighbor said that the chickens come in her yard in the morning but when she tries to catch them they head across the street to a different property. The officer referred the case to anima control.

  1. Wild chickens on the loose! LOL We have a couple of chickens and one of them turned out to be a rooster, the MLT ordinance doesn’t allow for roosters so I got rid of him before he caused too much trouble.

    The hens we have lay about 5 eggs a week each and eat up all the bugs in the yard & garden. Too bad more people don’t raise their own their poultry, it’s pretty easy and quite entertaining!

  2. Those chickens have been running around for a long time. Now i’m noticing lots of rabbits running around that area in the mornings before the sun comes up on my way to work. I’m surprised that the racoons haven’t gotten them.
