Liberty Lake Blotter: Police check on welfare of two people

Sat., April 12, 2014, midnight

Liberty Lake Police were asked to check on the welfare of people twice last week for different reasons.

On March 31 a man contacted the police department to report his daughter missing after she failed to check in with family and her phone was turned off.

A roommate told police that she had gone to meet someone she met online and never came back. The woman’s picture was posted on the department’s Facebook page as a possible missing person and someone called police to give her location. An officer checked with the woman to make sure she was OK.

On April 4 a man called police and requested that they check on his ex-wife and son. The man was barred from contacting them except via email because of a restraining order. The man was not receiving any replies and told police he was concerned for their safety. An officer contacted the ex-wife, who told police she was fine and simply didn’t want to respond to her former husband.

Other incidents reported from March 31 to April 7

March 31: A juvenile reportedly assaulted several staff members at a facility in the 23000 block of East Mission Avenue. A business in the 1100 block of North Liberty Lake Road reported that several flags had been stolen overnight.

April 3: A resident in the 1300 block of North Murray Lane reported that someone had applied for a credit card in her name. A resident in the 22000 block of East Country Vista Drive reported that her neighbors were playing heavy metal music and pounding on the walls to harass her. An officer could hear no noise coming from the neighbors when he arrived. A man reported that his 17-year-old son had been assaulted at a party in the 23000 block of East Riverside Avenue the night before. His son was undergoing surgery for his injuries. The incident is under investigation.

Arrests: Police made seven arrests for driving with a suspended license. One of those seven drivers was also charged with driving under the influence.

Citations: Officers handed out 11 citations for speeding. Additional citations were given for following too close and use of a cellphone.
