Snoqualmie Police Department

Tuesday, April 9

Not constructive: At 8:22 a.m., a Waste Management driver contacted police about a threatening incident that occurred earlier in the morning in the 9200 block of Merritt Avenue Southeast. The driver said he'd honked his horn at a construction truck so it would move, and the driver of that truck became very angry, swearing at him and trying to get at him. Police could not follow up because the driver could not describe the worker, and hadn't reported the incident right away.

The officer arrested the man and confiscated a bag of tools and a glass pipe that appeared to be for smoking narcotics, but no narcotic drugs.

Unwanted guest: At 2:25 a.m., the employee of a store in the 8200 block of Railroad Avenue Southeast called police to have a person removed from the store. The person was asleep in the deli section of the store. Police advised him to leave, and he left the store on foot.
