Coulee Dam


9/15 - A Central Drive man told police that security footage showed a man taking a bike from his front lawn. The man in the footage was thought to live in the 12th Street apartments, and police confirmed that the footage matched that man’s driver license. Police found that to be probable cause to arrest him for criminal trespass and theft. Police were unable to locate the bike at the apartments at that time. The next day, the same suspect was seen in a private yard looking at a truck and garage doors, leading someone to take pictures of him. That incident could also lead to criminal trespass charges.

- A vehicle lost a rim and was unable to drive while blocking a lane at River Drive and Roosevelt Way. The driver told police that the car was violently shaking then the rim and tire flew off toward the river. The lug nuts were possibly not torqued correctly when recently installed and this could have caused the issue, police surmised. The vehicle was towed.

9/17 - A deer shot with a bow had made its way to a Coulee Dam residence on Columbia Avenue. The property owner was upset the hunters used a bow and not a rifle. Eventually, the hunters were allowed to put the deer out of its misery and take it from the property.

9/18 - Police responded to SR-155 at milepost 18 to assist Grand Coulee Police with a one-vehicle traffic accident in which a woman in her 20s was lying on the roadway, receiving CPR. She was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

- A woman reported that her son had been pushed by other children on the school playground and that one of those children video taped the incident. Police were unable to contact the parents of the other children.

9/19 - Someone reported glass breaking and a door open at a River Drive home. The case was forwarded to tribal police because it is tribal trust property.
