3/16 - The driver of a truck with a badly damaged windshield was reported by multiple people, and pulled over near Jess Ford. The man was intoxicated, and was cited for driving under the influence, driving with a suspended license, and being in possession of a stolen Bureau of Reclamation sign.

3/17 - A woman reported that her vehicle had been prowled at her Boulder Avenue residence. She heard the faint sound of a car door closing and noticed her car door wasn’t fully closed. The registration, which expires in a month, was the only thing that appeared to be missing.

- A woman reported her camper parked at Coulee Playland broken into and things missing including televisions, a makeup bag, and a box of diapers.

3/18 - An argument at Sunbanks Resort resulted in an intoxicated woman walking off. She was found lying in the bushes and was given a ride to the hospital. The man she was arguing with said she had drunk about a fifth of rum.

3/18 - Drug paraphernalia was found at an apartment left in disarray by the former tenants, who were two months behind on rent and had abandoned the place.

3/19 - No loud party was found on Coulee Boulevard as had been reported.

3/20 - A woman complained about a black Dodge truck speeding down Hillcrest Avenue at an estimated 45 miles per hour in the 25 mph zone. An officer spoke to the owner of the truck, and told him to follow the speed limit.

- A man was banned from a Dill Avenue residence. He was said to be causing problems and arguing with another man, calling him the “n” word. The two reportedly didn’t fight at that time. The man loaded up his possessions and left.

- A woman reported that a package containing 15 pounds of baking powder had been stolen off of her porch on Grand Coulee Avenue. She said she knew it had been delivered because she used the UPS tracking number.

Coulee Dam

3/9 - An officer went to Lake Roosevelt High School for a report of a minor in possession of marijuana. A bag with 8.8 grams of a green leafy substance from Buddy Boy Farms was found in a student’s backpack in a locker, along with a glass pipe. The student’s guardian was unavailable to talk to the officer and administrators until the next day. The information was forwarded to the Okanogan County Juvenile Prosecutor to decide on charges.

3/10 - A truck turned from the bridge over the Columbia River on Columbia Avenue in such a way that an officer noted that if the centerline were a saw blade, the truck would have been cut in half. The vehicle was pulled over and the driver cited for the improper turn, as well as for having an expired registration.

3/14 - Someone reported hearing a woman scream and run away near the casino and Coulee House motel. An officer spoke with the reporting party, as well as with casino staff, but was unable to find the woman in question. The officer then got a call from Okanogan County dispatch, which had been contacted by a woman who said it was she who had screamed. She said a man at the motel had pushed her down stairs, and that she was going to stay at a friend’s house. Police attempted to call her back but were unsuccessful.
