Harassment tops list of officer calls in Liberty Lake


The week of April 22-29 was one of harassment calls for the Liberty Lake Police Department. Officers responded to calls reporting harassment by a sibling, a former employee, and a man giving unwanted attention to a woman.

Officers also continued their string of arrests for driving with a suspended license, detaining seven people for the infraction. They assisted Spokane County deputies with a reported case of child neglect in the 21000 block of East Wellesley Avenue on Saturday. A caller reported talking to a small child without shoes in the front yard who said she had been kicked out of the house. When officers arrived the father said he had told the child to sit on the front porch and not move as punishment, said Police Chief Brian Asmus. Deputies took over the investigation when they arrived at the home, he said.

Police pulled over a golf cart full of juveniles that had reportedly been driving recklessly just after 6 p.m. Friday in the 1300 block of North Liberty Lake Road. Two of the juveniles had fallen out of the golf cart while it was moving, Asmus said. The driver’s parents were contacted and the rules regarding driving golf carts in the city explained, he said.

During the week officers also arrested a 19-year-old woman for minor in possession of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. They handed out four citations for failure to show proof of liability insurance and 10 for speeding. Additional citations were given for parking in a no parking zone, license and plates required, driving without a license without identification and texting while driving.
