Liberty Lake Police Blotter: Officers help intoxicated woman

Liberty Lake police officers helped a woman twice in two days recently and worked to ensure she was taken care of at a local hospital.

Police were called to the 24000 block of East Spotted Owl Lane just before 4 p.m. on Aug. 15 after receiving a report that a woman there was trying to “drink herself to death,” according to police records clerk Sakti Hiatt. Officers found more than 20 empty beer cans in a bedroom, and the woman was taken to the hospital to be treated.

Officers responded to the 2300 block of North Madson Street just after 1 p.m. on Aug. 16 for the same woman, who had left the hospital and taken a taxi to the location. The woman was again extremely intoxicated and was taken back to the hospital, Hiatt said. This time an officer accompanied her to make sure she was kept for monitoring, Hiatt said.

Other calls from Aug. 15-22

Aug. 16: A report of identity theft was made in the 2100 block of North Oakland Lane. A resident reported that someone tried to open four credit accounts in her name.

Aug. 17: Someone reported losing a set of keys in Pavillion Park. A reckless driver was reported in the area of Corrigan Road and Mission Avenue. The offending driver was gone when police arrived.

Arrests: Police made on arrest on a warrant and one for driving with a suspended license.

Citations: Officers handed out two citations for failure to show proof of liability insurance and six for speeding. Additional citations were given for failure to display registration, parking in a handicap zone, expired vehicle registration, driving without lights when required and obstructing a law enforcement officer.
