(GOLD BAR, WA.) -- Below are highlights from the April police call responses in and around Gold Bar and the upper valley as issued jointly by the honorable Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary and the equally honorable Gold Bar Mayor Lee Hodo
Case Report Summary:
Case summary: 2 Abandoned Vehicle Impounds, 1 Arson, 1 Assault on Police, 1 Civil Dispute, 2 Disturbance, 1 Drug Paraphernalia Possession, 1 DUI, 3 Found Property, 2 Malicious Mischief, 1 Mental Health Referral, 1 Runaway, 2 Suspicious Circumstance, 4 Theft, 1 Trespass, 1 Violation Court Order, 1 Warrant Arrest. (Fairly mellow stuff for a month’s worth of crime action. Pretty safe living out here all things considered.)
Drowning: A 30 year old woman from unincorporated Bothell was found by hikers, deceased, in a pool below Middle Falls at Wallace Falls State Park. Fire, Search and Rescue and Sheriff’s personnel recovered the body.
Drowning: A 22 year old woman from unincorporated Monroe was with friends on Young’s Creek near Cedar Ponds Road when she slipped and fell into the falls. Fire, Search and Rescue and Sheriff’s personnel searched for 2 days with no success. Search and Rescue personnel located and recovered the body a few days later.
Editor’s Note: The Chronicle had a big story April 21st on the hidden dangers of being in and around rivers and lakes this time of year. Find it here .
Assist to City Officials: City personnel requested assistance from deputies with several code violations within Gold Bar. Deputies have tagged several unlawfully parked, abandoned, unlicensed and/or junk vehicles on city right-of-way. Deputies impounded one using private tow and one using Snohomish County Solid Waste. (Hip Hip Hooray! on that bad boy. We hate seeing those rusted out, junked out cars and trucks sitting abandoned here and there for weeks, months or years on end. A major eye sore. Jolly good on a job well done.)
Parking: Deputies have checked Ley Rd for parking violations several times. Although other issues have been identified, there were no vehicles parked in the posted “no-parking” zones at the time of the checks. The gendarmes continue to work with fire officials and county roads to resolve parking issues on May Creek Road just outside of Gold Bar.
Railroad Property: Railroad police, assisted by deputies when needed, have begun an effort to evict squatters and clean out the encampments on the railroad land between the tracks and the river south of Nugget Rd. Police remind residents that the railroad tracks and their land south of the tracks are private property and trespassers may be criminally cited if entering onto railroad land without permission.
Now to the charts. The tables and charts you see at above right compare incident types of service as reported for the Gold Bar Regional contract.
There will be a test on all this stuff later. Thank you for your attention to these criminal matters.
